    MMA pound for pound British rankings 

    BBC world officially announced MMA Pound for Pound British ranking 2009.  The list will be updated periodically and should be treated as a talking point. Let the debate begin!

    Ignoring weight, this subjective list takes into account fighters’ recent results, their skills, resilience and punching power.

    European cruiserweight champion David Haye

    1. David Haye

    – Heavyweight
    London (23-1, 21KOs)
    Haye did what he had to do to claim the WBA heavyweight crown from Nikolay Valuev. John Ruiz is next, and provided he wins that one, the Brothers Klitschko will follow.

    British and Commonwealth super middleweight champion Carl Froch

    2. Carl Froch

    – Super-middleweight
    Nottingham (26-0, 20KOs)
    Froch’s debut in the Super Six tournament against Andre Dirrell left both himself and fans frustrated, but a win is a win. However, he will have to be improved if he is to beat Mikkel Kessler.

    WBA welterweight champion Ricky Hatton

    3. Ricky Hatton

    – Light-welterweight
    Manchester (45-2, 32KOs)
    Hatton was knocked out in two rounds by pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas, but rumour has it he could be back against Juan Manuel Marquez next summer.

    Amir Khan

    4. Amir Khan

    – Light-welterweight
    Bolton (22-1, 16KOs)
    Khan demolished Dmitriy Salita in 76 seconds in the first defence of his WBA belt and now has his eyes set on the United States. First up, preparing Manny Pacquiao for Floyd Mayweather.

    Kell Brook

    5. Kell Brook

    – Welterweight
    Sheffield (20-0, 13KOs)
    Originally a product of the same Sheffield gym as Naseem Hamed, Brook has been tipped for world honours. Defends his title against Michael Jennings next.

    Kevin Mitchell

    6. Kevin Mitchell

    – Lightweight
    Dagenham (30-0, 22KOs)
    Mitchell gave a classy display in beating Amir Khan’s conqueror Breidis Prescott and his next fight could be for the WBO belt. On the most recent evidence, he’s ready.

    British lightweight champion John Murray

    7. John Murray

    – Lightweight
    Manchester (28-0, 16KOs)
    Was stripped of his British title after coming in too heavy against Scott Lawton, but won it back with a fourth-round stoppage of Jon Thaxton in October. Will now be scenting bigger prizes.

    British, European and Commonwealth light welterweight champion Junior Witter

    8. Junior Witter

    – Light-welterweight
    Bradford (37-3-2, 22KOs)
    Witter’s hopes of fighting Amir Khan went up in smoke when he lost to Devon Alexander in trying to reclaim the WBC light-welterweight belt. Difficult to see what options he has left.

    Nathan Cleverly

    9. Nathan Cleverly

    – Light-heavyweight
    Cefn Forest (18-0, 8KOs)
    Cleverly, 22, already owns the British and Commonwealth titles and will challenge for the vacant European crown against Antonio Brancalion, in Italy, on 27 January.

    Rendall Munroe

    10. Rendall Munroe

    – Super-bantamweight
    Leicester (20-1, 8KOs)
    Munroe defended his European crown against Italy’s Simone Maludrottu in November, and could now challenge Japan’s WBC champion Toshiaki Nishioka.

    MMA pound for pound world rankings 

    BBC world officially announced MMA Pound for Pound ranking 2009.  The list will be updated periodically and should be treated as a talking point. Let the debate begin!

    Manny Pacquiao

    1. Manny Pacquiao

    – Welterweight
    Philippines (50-3-2, 38KOs)
    Pacquiao destroyed Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas to cement his place at the top of the pound-for-pound tree. Floyd Mayweather should be next, and what a fight that could be.

    Floyd Mayweather

    2. Floyd Mayweather

    – Welterweight
    United States (40-0, 25KOs)
    ‘Pretty Boy’ returned from a 21-month hiatus with a bang, outclassing Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas to raise the prospect of a mouth-watering clash with Manny Pacquiao.

    Bernard Hopkins

    3. Bernard Hopkins

    – Light-heavyweight
    United States (50 wins, 5 losses, 1 draw, 32KOs)
    Hopkins is still churning out wins six years shy of his 50th birthday, and now wants to fight Britain’s world heavyweight champion David Haye. Fellow American Chad Dawson is more likely.

    Shane Mosley

    4. Shane Mosley

    – Welterweight
    United States (46-5, 39KOs)
    Mosley outclassed Antonio Margarito at the age of 37 and will fight young pretender and WBC champion Andre Berto in January. No-one will be surprised if the old man comes out on top.

    Juan Manuel Marquez

    5. Juan Manuel Marquez

    – Lightweight
    Mexico (50-5-1, 37KOs)
    Marquez was destroyed by the returning Floyd Mayweather in September, but size was clearly a factor. Ricky Hatton says Marquez is top of his wish list, that fight could happen in 2010.

    Miguel Angel Cotto

    6. Miguel Cotto

    – Welterweight
    Puerto Rico (34-2, 27KOs)
    Was demolished by Manny Pacquiao, and the suspicion is he has been damaged goods since his defeat by Antonio Margarito, who was subsequently banned, last year.

    Paul Williams

    7. Paul Williams

    – Middleweight
    United States (38-1, 27KOs)
    Williams was involved in one of the best fights of 2009 against Sergio Martinez, and surely two-belt world champion and fellow American Kelly Pavlik must be next.

    Israel Vazquez

    8. Israel Vazquez

    – Super-bantamweight
    Mexico (44-4, 32KOs)
    Vazquez reclaimed his WBC belt from Rafael Marquez in 2007 and nicked the rubber last March. Guess what? He’s fighting Marquez for a fourth time in May.

    Chad Dawson

    9. Chad Dawson

    – Light-heavyweight
    United States (29-0, 17KOs)
    What Dawson lacks in box-office, he makes up for in ring smarts. Beat former world champions Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson in 2009 – surely Bernard Hopkins is next?

    Juan Manuel Lopez

    10. Juan Manuel Lopez

    – Featherweight
    Puerto Rico (27-0, 24KOs)
    The unbeaten former super-bantamweight world champion has amassed a formidable record and he will step up to challenge WBO featherweight champ Steven Luevano in January.

    Top 10 Pound For Pound MMA Fighter Rankings 

    Pound for pound is the term used in boxing, mixed martial arts, and other combat sports to describe a fighter’s value in relation to fighters of different weight classes. In boxing, Ring Magazine’s pound for pound list is the established standard for ranking fighters pound for pound. Because of the emphasis on the size of the boxer, pound for pound ratings predominantly feature fewer heavyweights, focusing primarily on boxers middleweight or below.

    It can also be used to describe how any two things compare when bearing in mind their varying quantities. For example, a tin of tomatoes weighing 250 g and costing $2.50 is more expensive, pound for pound, than one weighing 500 g and costing $4 (as the former costs $1.00 per 100 g and the latter $0.80 per 100 g).

    Here is the list of top MMA Pound for Pound Fighter Rankings:

    1. mma pound for pound jan 2010Anderson Silva
    2. Georges St. Pierre
    3. Fedor Emelianenko
    4. BJ Penn
    5. Lyoto Machida

    7. Mauricio Rua
    8. Dan Henderson
    9. Gegard Mousasi
    10. Miguel Torres
