Boston Throwdown’s MMA Rankings

View Comments

We are in the early stages here at BostonThrowdown.com and to help kick things off here is our inital MMA Rankings.  Each month we will release updated rankings, as voted on by the Boston Throwdown crew (Smitty, Josh Deering, Nick Cattles, and Rich Keefe).  This is a great opportunity for you to voice your opinion as well.  You think Lesnar is better than Fedor?  Tell us about it in the comment section.  Without further ado, here are the Top 10 fighters from Lightweight to Heavyweight (sorry feather and bantamweight fans), and the best Pound-4-Pound.
