First UFC Rankings Released: Anderson Silva Tops P4P Charts

The UFC, with the help of FightMetric, has posted the first set of official rankings. Members of the media were asked to participate in the set of rankings, which you can view here.

Champions in each weight class were automatically placed at the top, while interim champions were positioned No. 1 on the list.

The pound-for-pound chart is headed by Anderson Silva, the reigning UFC middleweight champion. Jon Jones is second, followed by Georges St-Pierre, Jose Aldo and Benson Henderson. The rest of the Top-10 includes Cain Velasquez, Dominick Cruz, Demetrious Johnson, Frankie Edgar and Dan Henderson.

Edgar and Dan Henderson are the lone non-UFC champions on the list. Edgar, in fact, is ranked fourth at featherweight, but ninth in the pound-for-pound list.
