Last week Dana White announced that the UFC would be teaming up with FightMetric to begin official rankings of UFC fighters. The rankings went live for the first time Monday evening. The fighters' position in each division and P4P were determined by a panel of media members approved by the UFC. Although White originally promised a full panel of 90 members, the first round only featured 28 voters.
Without further ado, here's the list of official rankings for P4P and each men's division (women's Bantamweight was excluded as the UFC only has 2 signed female fighters):
Note: Fighters are only allowed to be ranked in the division they're next scheduled to fight in. That means that Chael Sonnen and Brian Stann were ineligible for ranking at MW as both of their next fights are set for 205 lbs.
