UFC Prospect Rankings: December 16, 2019

UFC Prospect Rankings

To be eligible for the list, a fighter must be under contract with the UFC, to have at least one fight with the promotion and to be fighting for less than 6 years as a pro (started fighting in 2013 or earlier). The rankings are based on the fighter’s potential to become elite fighter or even champions in their divisions. The lists are therefore not based on the actual rankings of a fighter in his division or on the win and losses he owns against other fighters on the list.

The Changes: Petr Yan rises up to number 2 in the pound-for-pound list. Ian Heinisch looses spots in the 185 rankings after two unsuccessfull fights in a row.
