Honorable Mention

Petr Yan

is the former bantamweight champion, who lost his title because of disqualification due to an illegal knee. Though he doesn’t make the top ten, he definitely deserves an honorable mention.

 

Top 10 P4P Rankings

  1. Robert Whitaker

Robert “The Reaper” Whitaker is one of the biggest MMA stars to come out of Australia. He has a professional record of 23-5. 

Whitaker is the former UFC middleweight champion, he lost the title to Israel Adesanya in 2019. Since then, he has gone on a three-fight win streak, beating the who's who of the middleweight division. He is the number 1 contender at middleweight, and will possibly fight Adesanya for the world title next. 

His most recent fight was against Kelvin Gastelum, which he won via UD, and got a fight of the night bonus.

 

  1. Max Holloway

Max is the former Featherweight champion and one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC roster right now. 

The Hawaiian mixed martial artist has a record of 22-6 and in his most recent fight against Calvin Kattar, he set the record for the most strikes landed in a single fight, breaking his own record. 

Holloway’s next fight has not been announced yet. 

 

  1. Jan Błachowicz - UFC Heavyweight Champion

Błachowicz is an MMA fighter from Poland, and he is the current UFC light heavyweight champion. 

Błachowicz has a professional record of 28-8, and in his most recent fight, he defeated Israel Adesanya and defended his title. His next fight is scheduled against Glover Teixeira. Błachowicz is currently on a five-fight win streak. 

 

  1. Charles Olivera - UFC Lightweight Champion

Charles Olivera is an MMA fighter from Brazil, and he is the reigning lightweight champion of the world. Olivera has a record of 31-8, and he is currently on an impressive 9 fight win streak. 

Olivera also holds the record for the most submissions and the most finishes in the UFC. His last fight was against Michael Chandler, which he won via TKO, and for his next fight, he will probably defend his title against the winner of the Poirier vs Mcgregor fight this weekend. 

 

  1. Dustin Poirier

Poirier is the former interim lightweight champion and the current number 1 contender at lightweight. Poirier has a record of 27 wins, 6 losses, and 1 no contest. 

Poirier defeated Conor McGregor via KO in his most recent fight, and the rubber match between the two superstars will happen this weekend. The winner of this fight will probably be next in line for the title shot.

Volkanovski is a professional MMA fighter and a former Rugby player from New Zealand. He is the current Featherweight champion and defeated Max Holloway to get the title. 

Volkanovski has a professional MMA record of 22-1, and he is scheduled to defend his title against BJJ sensation Brian Ortega on 25th September. Volkanovski is currently on a 19 fight win streak. 

 

  1. Francis Ngannou - UFC Heavyweight Champion

Ngannou is easily the heaviest puncher in the UFC, and after defeating stipe Miochich in his most recent fight, he is now the UFC heavyweight champion and the “baddest man on the planet”

Ngannou is known for his incredible punching power, and he has knocked out many impressive names like Curtis Blaydes, Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, and Stipe Miocic. 

Cyril Gane and Derrek Lewis are fighting for the interim heavyweight title next, and the winner will probably be Ngannou’s next opponent. 

 

  1. Israel Adesanya - UFC Middleweight Champion

Adesanya is a Nigerian-born professional mixed martial artist, a former kickboxer, and boxer fighting out of New Zealand. He is the reigning Middleweight champion and has defended his title 3 times. 

Adesanya has a record of 21 wins and 1 loss, he defeated Marvin Vettori via UD in his last fight, and his next fight has not been scheduled yet. However, there is a chance that he might have a rematch against the current number 1 contender at middleweight, Robert Whitaker. 

 

  1. Jon Jones

Jon “Bones” Jones is one of the most talented MMA fighters ever, he was the youngest UFC champion, and many people still regard him as the GOAT of MMA. However, as far as the current pound for pound rankings go, Jones is currently at number 2 on our list, because of inactivity. 

Jones has a record of 26-1 with 1 no contest. He won his most recent fight, Dominick Reyes, but vacated his title recently to move to heavyweight. Jones is eyeing a fight against the heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. 

 

  1. Kamaru Usman - UFC Welterweight Champion

Kamaru Usman is another Nigerian-American professional mixed martial artist and former freestyle wrestler. He is the current welterweight champion, and one of the most dominant forces in the UFC. 

Usman has defended his title 4 times already and is currently on an 18 fight win streak. He also holds the record for the longest active win streak in the UFC. 

In his most recent fight, he defeated Jorge Masvidal via 2nd round KO, and his next fight has not been announced yet. 

 

How would you rank these champions and contenders? Where would you rank Jon Jones? We are heavy into inactivity but you may not be. Dustin Poirier over the champion Charles Olivera? On the P4P list we believe so.
