Rankings Broken Down by Weight Class 2001-Present

Here are rankings that I've broken down and looked up as best as I could from 2001 to the present. (Sherdog didn't start them until August 2007, so if you have some other, better sources for before that, please let me know.) I've provided the links to each group of rankings I provided as well, so that you can easily go read and see how and why they adjusted them.

The first group I'm posting is Heavyweight, and I'll post each consecutive lower weight class after it. Due to space limitations, the first post is only up through 2007, and when the rankings remained the same, I simply said to look at the previous date that had the same Top 10 list. Further, in some cases I've provided a brief overview of the changes that occurred to make it easier and more efficient to look through.

I thought it would be helpful for people's arguments and/or other research you may want to do with regards to the Divisional Rankings (It was originally for my own research purposes but figured I'd post it as well). I'll work on keeping them updated as new ones come out. If you have any suggestions for making it better, let me know!
Thanks...and Enjoy!

Edit: I just added Contenders to the lists, fighters that are new and joining the contenders list (which starts February 25, 2009) will be marked with an asterisk (*).
