Everyone has their own thoughts on who is the best fighter in the world. Here I give you my opinion of who REALLY is the best.

I am taking into account the level of opponents they have beaten, the manner of their performances and how long they have been reigning for. Most of these fighters are champion of their respected divisions so it is about who and how.

I have also decided to not include female fighters as I will be giving them their own ranking shortly.

Also, fighters who are not in the UFC have not been included, but apart from the inclusion of Demetrious Johnson, that would do little to affect the rankings I have given. 

I compiled this without looking at the UFC rankings however I would imagine that they are fairly similar. Some fighters may be on a loss but if their overall form has been good in recent they still may find them high in the rankings of my list.

Who is the current #1

Khabib Nurmagomedov

Jon Jones

Henry Cejudo

Israel Adesanya

Someone else?
