The UFC 145-pound title holder doesn't think that he should be behind Jon Jones or any other fighter in the pound for pound ranking. Jose Aldo, the No. 2 fighter in the pound for pound rankings, feels like he should be in the top of this list, according with his interview to Ag. Fight. The UFC Featherweight champion is only behind Jon Jones in the list, and is positioned ahead of other dominant champions like Cain Velasquez, Chris Weidman, Demetrious Johnson and Ronda Rousey.

But you know, "politics" and stuff. In the view of many, Urijah Faber included, the official Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rankings (see them here) "don't mean crap." Still, they exist and if not for anything else, they make for a good conversation piece. So going into this weekend's (Sat., Aug. 23, 2014) UFC Fight Night 48 bout against Dong Hyun Kim in Macua, China -- which you can see exclusively on Fight Pass -- Tyron Woodley knows "Stun Gun" is a much better fighter than the number be read news >>

If this was a list ranking mixed martial arts' top pound-for-pound self-promoters, we'd likely talk about how Irish featherweight Conor McGregor has taken over the top spot in the wake of Chael Sonnen's retirement. But rather, this is a compilation of the current top 10 featherweights in the sport, as determined by the SB Nation panel. And as of now, the bombastic McGregor doesn't yet make the cut. McGregor finished Diego Brandao in the first round of their July 19 bout in Dublin, capping one of read news >>

Throughout UFC history, there have been a multitude of champions. Some have been absolutely dominant champions, while some have lost the title in their first attempted defense. Even worse, some have lost the title without even attempting to defend it. Today's MMA features many new champions, and believe it or not, Jon Jones is currently the longest-reigning champion in the UFC. With many new champions dominating their divisions, it can be hard to compare them to past dominant champions. This lis read news >>

"The Preacher's Daughter" has been very diplomatic in the days following her ZUFFA contract announcement. Wolf in sheep's clothing? If Holly Holm knows how to talk trash, she might be saving it for her next big fight. Or, it's possible that the newest addition to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight roster just doesn't believe in smack talk to promote a fight, since everything she's said to date (including this) has been complimentary toward her peers. That includes riva read news >>

From its earliest days, determining the best MMA fighter in the world has never been a particularly easy task. Even as Royce Gracie dominated the initial UFC tournaments in 1993 and 1994, challengers to his throne emerged overseas, his own brother Rickson at the front of the pack. As the years have gone by and the sport has become more diverse—in size, technique and geography—winnowing a pool of hundreds down to one has become more and more difficult.

When Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson was booked in September 2013, nobody thought the Swede stood much of a chance against the light heavyweight champion, whom many were already calling the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. But the two went toe-to-toe for 25 back-and-forth minutes in what ended up being one of the best scraps in the history of the sport. In hindsight, it was a can't-miss fight. Thankfully, the two will rematch later this year at UFC 178, in what is one of the 12 can' read news >>

For years, light heavyweight has been the UFC's marquee division. While there is a certain cache in being the heavyweight champion of the world, with due respect to the likes of Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski, this was the division that mattered most. Frank Shamrock got the stone rolling nicely with a memorable dark-ages reign. But it was Tito Ortiz who brought the sport into the light, dominating in the cage and becoming the first star of the Zuffa era. His were enormous shoes to fill, but Chuc read news >>
