Note that due to inactivity Anderson Silva and Jon Jones are both ineligible for the rankings this month:
Top 10 P4P Fighters (12/30/15)
1) Demetrious Johnson (2)
Demetrious Johnson will supposedly be facing Henry Cejudo next but a date, event and venue are not set. This could be Johnson’s greatest challenge to date considering Cejudo is an Olympic Gold Medalist in freestyle wrestling.
2) Robbie Lawler (4)
After Robbie Lawler‘s Fight of the Night performance against Carlos Condit there’s no set opponent for him. However, there is no shortage of opponents and rumors of Georges St.-Pierre‘s return might settle the issue.
3) Rafael dos Anjos (5)
Rafaels dos Anjos is set to defend his title at UFC 196 against Conor McGregor who is at featherweight. McGregor certainly didn’t shy away from saying this would happen before he was even the featherweight champion.
4) Daniel Cormier (6)
There are rumors that Daniel Cormier will be defending his title against Jon Jones but nothing is set thus far. However, this is not set in stone and the winner may have to face Anthony Johnson who destroyed Ryan Bader.
5) Fabricio Werdum (7)
Fabricio Werdum is recovering from training injuries but his new opponent will be Stipe Miocic at UFC 198. Miocic was willing to step in on two weeks notice had Werdum not pulled out following Cain Velasquez‘s injury.
6) Conor McGregor (8)
In what is definitely a super fight, Conor McGregor will be moving up in weight to fight Rafael dos Anjos. This is certainly ambitious of McGregor considering this same time last year he was still a simple contender in the UFC.
7) Luke Rockhold (9)
Luke Rockhold is rumored to be defending his title against Chris Weidman sometime this summer. This is arguably not the best choice given the fact that Rockhold pretty much controlled Weidman the whole match.
8) Dominick Cruz (N/A)
It was over a year off for Dominick Cruz when he walked into the Octagon on January 17th to become UFC Bantamweight Champion once again. This is fitting considering that he never actually lost the championship.
9) T.J. Dillashaw (3)
T.J. Dillashaw definitely fought his hardest but lost the title to Dominick Cruz at UFC Fight Night: Dillashaw vs. Cruz. As a consolation the two did win Fight of the Night honors and Dillashaw might have an opponent.
10) Jose Aldo (10)
It’s still too early to see how Jose Aldo will handle losing his title and Conor McGregor complicates things.
Chris Weidman, Cain Velasquez, Holly Holm, Anthony Pettis, Cristiane Santos, Johny Hendricks
