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).
