Update On Latest UFC Rankings: Weili Zhang Tops Valentina Shevchenko On Women’s P4P List

Zhang Excels Shevchenko In Women’s P4P List

UFC updates the official rankings after last week’s UFC 248 MMA event, which down in Las Vegas. Not much has changed, but surprisingly women’s strawweight champion Weili Zhang who retained her title after outlasting former division’s queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk surpasses women’s flyweight champion on pound-for-pound rankings.

Besides that change, Daniel Cormier also removed from light heavyweight rankings that opens a path for other contenders to move up to top.

Check out below official rankings and how it works:

Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC.

A fighter can appear in more than one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings. (Via UFC.com)
