How are UFC Rankings Determined?
The UFC uses their media in order to come up with the pound for pound best fighter at the time. The UFC usually will update their rankings once a week, and the only guideline that must be followed is the fighter must be active at the time of rankings. Champions and interim champions are at the top of their divisions respectfully. The only thing a champion can be voted for is pound for pound. Fighters are able to appear in multiple weight divisions, but may excel in only one.
