UFC Rankings Update: Rousey Joins Top 10 P4P With GSP’s Withdrawal
By FCF Staff
Now that Georges St. Pierre has vacated the UFC welterweight title, and has announced he’s stepping away from fighting, it hasn’t taken long for the promotion’s rankings to be changed.
St. Pierre is no longer ranked in the welterweight division, and as a result of his withdrawal, women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey has cracked the pound-for-pound top ten. Rousey currently sits at #10 in the P4P ranks and all of the previously ranked competitors have moved up one ranking, except for Jon Jones. The light-heavyweight champion was already positioned as the UFC’s best P4P fighter.
At welterweight, Johny Hendricks tops the list (but isn’t assigned a numeric ranking) and Carlos Condit sits at #1. Robbie Lawler, who will challenge Hendricks for the vacant title March 15th, is #2.
“Shogun” Rua has moved up three positions at light-heavyweight as result of his recent KO win over James Te Huna and is ranked #6.
The UFC rankings are determined by a panel of media members.
