Rankings Friday: MMA Complete's Top-15 Pound-For-Pound Fighters

The Pound-For-Pound Fighters list has been a staple for the UFC Rankings ever since 2013. Since then we have seen only a handful of fighters claim the #1 ranking including the very best ever. These fighters are Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Jose Aldo, Demetrious Johnson, Daniel Cormier, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kamaru Usman. After last months crazy knockout however, the reigning #1 P4P champion has fallen off his platform and made way for the Volkanovski era.


After his latest victory over rival Max Holloway, there was a lot of push for Volkanovski to hold the top ranking anyway and now it's undeniable. While the rest of the top 5 is pretty solidified, here at MMA Complete we like to take our own account of the rankings. While constructing this list we focused solely on the fighter's resume, wins, finishes and truly how great of a fighter they are. That's to say we did not factor their drawing power or social media presence at all, strictly ranking their craft, a method long ago disbanded by the UFC.


So without further ado, here is our take on the best of the best. Men and Women's Top-15 Pound-For-Pound rankings according to MMA Complete. Have anything you'd change? Let us know on our twitter @complete_mma.
