Fightful MMA Rankings: UFC & Bellator MMA (Updated: 10/17/2018)

As the curator of the Fightful MMA Rankings, I wanted to give everybody a heads up to a major change in the rankings system for 2018. Just to see what each weight class would look like, all fighters who haven't competed in over a year (excluding champions) were removed from the rankings. This is going to be done like this all year and fighters will get added back to the rankings when they compete again.
