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.

This past weekend’s WEC results shook up the top of the bantamweight rankings pretty significantly.  Dominick Cruz and Joseph Benavidez both jumped up with their resounding wins in Columbus, Ohio.  The other significant move saw Paulo Thiago enter the welterweight rankings off his stoppage of previously ranked Mike Swick.

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.  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.
