If FightMatrix were to rank Jon Jones at heavyweight...

How many points would he have right now and how is it calculated?

He would lose roughly 15% of his points... and still be #1.

So moving from light heavyweight to heavyweight results in a 15% penalty and moving the opposite way results in a 15% bonus?

E.g. a fighter with 1000 points at light heavyweight, would have 850 points at heavyweight?

Sorry - 17% is the rough estimate...

http://www.fightmatrix.com/mma-ranks/

As of 11/01/2009, current ranking points are division-adjusted. They were never and are still not division-specific. Some adjustments are made on a per-division basis to protect against inexperienced divisional outliers. The exact adjustment varies depending on divisions, recent division-specific performances and direction moved, but a male fighter moving up one division will lose approximately 17%. Male fighters will gain approximately 17% upon moving down a division. This percentage varies slightly depending on the divisions in question as well as other factors. The factor is approximately 1/3rd stronger for female fighters.

The LHW->HW move is stiffer than the rest. Fighters take (roughly) a 22% hit.

Upon ranking, if the fighter does not have recent success in the division, they take (up to) an additional 33.3% hit.. which is provisional (i.e. they get it back upon proving themselves).

So the answer is a little bit different depending on the reason for the movement.

What about moving directly from middleweight to heavyweight? How many points would Bisping have at heavyweight if he moved up tomorrow? What's the hit % ?

Roughly 39%.... and the same bit about the provisional hit remains.
