MMA on Tap February 2010 Rankings

Strikeforce Welterweight Champ Nick Diaz

They’re BACK!!!  Here are the latest MMA on Tap fighter rankings. We will be updating these every month or whenever an adjustment is needed, like after a major event for example. The rankings break down into seven different lists of ten, each of them by division.

The most significant move of late sees Nick Diaz break into Welterweight ranking following his destruction of Marius Zaromskis in Strikeforce.  The bout marked the return of Diaz to the welterweight division and his defeat of the highly regarded Zaromskis earned him the Strikeforce Welterweight Title.

If you ever want to compare these with your own or just take a look at the latest update, you can find them under the ?Top 10? category in our features section. A fighter?s previous ranking is listed in parenthesis after his name. The rankings were tabulated by the members of the MMA on Tap staff. Feel free to chime in with your own lists, thoughts, and suggestions via a comment.
