Bantamweight All-Time Rankings

With a major Bantamweight fight happening on Saturday, I thought it’d be an opportune time to post a graphical representation of the Bantamweight All-Time rankings and their progression since late 2011.

All fighters listed were at one point or another, in the Top 10 since late 2011.  The rank next to their name represents their current All-Time ranking in the Bantamweight division.

As you can see, Barao has had a meteoric rise toward #1 Torres, but Dillashaw’s victory over him temporarily deterred him from gaining the top position.

I think it’s worth noting that this week there is a fight between two of the best heavyweights outside of the UFC, #12 Damian Grabowski and #23 Marcin Tybura. There is almost no word about it in any of the more popular american MMA news sites, so the least we can do is give it some pubicity here, the home for the more objective look at the MMA world.

Apparently, the event will air on M1Global.TV and will be available for a symbolic $1.00.

Is the UFC even aware of the existence of these guys? Nobody anywhere even suggests they should be fighting in the UFC.
