MMAOddsBreaker Rankings Update

Jon-JonesWith a high profile UFC 172 event taking place this weekend, it’s high time the official MMAOddsBreaker rankings were updated. I apologize for slacking and we’ll hopefully be back to updating them after every UFC event again.  MMA Oddsbreaker’s Brian Hemminger (@BrianHemminger) and Jason Nawara (@JasonNawara) have taken over the reigns of the rankings and our compromised list is posted below. We’re switching our format to top 15 in each weight class just like the official UFC rankings, although we include fighters from every promotion. Our rankings include combatants from UFC, Bellator, World Series of Fighting and even One FC. To access the full MMAOddsBreaker rankings, click here. Disagree?
