ESPN MMA Pound-for-Pound Rankings

Note: Rankings were updated Oct. 9. Fighters who are currently suspended are not eligible. On Oct. 15, the Nevada State Athletic Commission issued temporary suspensions to two fighters on our men’s pound-for-pound list, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, stemming from the brawl at the conclusion of UFC 229. A hearing on Oct. 24 could result in indefinite suspensions, which would be reflected in our next rankings.
