MMA on Tap Top 10 - July 12, 2008


Newly crowned UFC champion Forrest Griffin picked up a potential career-defining win, albeit controversial, over reigning divisional king Quinton “Rampage” Jackson last weekend, vaulting him to the top spot in our light heavyweight rankings. Photo property of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Here are the latest MMA on Tap Top 10 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 7 different lists of 10, each of them by division.

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 fighter’s previous ranking is listed in parenthesis after the fighter’s name.

The rankings were tabulated by Bill Reger and myself. Feel free to chime in with your own lists, thoughts, or suggestions.
