    1. Demetrious Johnson
    2. Tyron Woodley
    3. Robert Whittaker
    4. Max Holloway
    5. TJ Dillashaw
    6. Tony Ferguson
    7. Stipe Miocic
    8. Daniel Cormier
    9. Rafael dos Anjos
    10. Stephen Thompson

    This is my list after the event in Winnipeg on Saturday night.

    Tyron Woodley's competition and the cerebral approach to beating them has him in my #2 spot. The guy has been so active over the last year that you cannot deny him his place on this list. The only reason why DJ is higher than him is the length of his streak and his constant dominant performances.

    TJ's win over Cody was so impressive that I've slotted him into the #5 spot, but it's so close between him and T-Ferg. El Cucuy's streak has been incredible and his wins over Barboza and dos Anjos are what truly have him this high in the list.

    Cormier is still in the top 10, but behind all other champions. Unfortunately being head-kicked unconscious in your last fight makes you drop a few spots, but he has a chance for redemption with a finish over Oezdemir.

    Stephen Thompson barely squeezes out Cody, Luke and Francis for the final spot on my list and here is why. Since his move to 170lbs the guy has been unbeatable and for the most part untouchable, outside of the genius that is Tyron Woodley. Thompson schooled a very underrated fighter in Masvidal in his last fight, and that isn't even mentioning the destruction of Hendricks and the whitewash over MacDonald. Luke's inactivity and Francis' recent rise are the only reasons why they don't nick the #10 spot.

    What does everyone else reckon?

    I don't put women in my lists, it's like putting Serena Williams in the men's world rankings.

    Conor hasn't fought in over a year, GSP has one win in 4 years and it was over Michael Bisping.

    5. Joanna
    6. Andrade
    7. Claudia

    10. Karolina

    I'm flexible for the most part though, it's by it's very nature an entirely subjective discussion. I don't like McG at all, but I have to give him serious credit in the p4p stakes for his FW run.

    Typically excellent work, I couldn't put McGregor or GSP in my own list, but I can see why one would.

    P4P

    It's hard to put an order to things, especially when so many of the fighters have not or have not recently fought in different weight classes. It's basically a which champ do you rate the most list, or who's your favourite champ list.

    The 10 names in something close to an order

    Macgregor
    Holloway
    Whittaker
    TJ
    Woodley
    DC
    Demetrius Johnson
    Stipe
    Tony Ferguson
    Rafael dos anjos

    Only thing I'm sure of is that DJ isn't number 1

    And GSP doesn't belong on the list with 1 win in 4-5 years, and it's Bisping, doesn't matter if Bisping was a champ, He was the champ with the weakest resume and got KO'd by Gastelum. Resume and ranked wins is over simply having a belt. We can say GSP is all-time P4P fighter but currently he hasn't done enough. If he grabs another belt though...

    hasn't done much to deserve that. holloway has like 10 wins in a row and beat the GOAT of his division twice. also maybe ferguson could be ahead of him too, TJ...

    woodley defended the belt twice (while putting the most boring performances someone has ever seeing in the UFC), still has a long way to go
