UFC Prospect Rankings: January 27, 2020

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 2014 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: At UFC 246, Maycee Barber looses the top spot in the Women’s Pound-for-Pound rankings after her loss to Roxanne Modafferi. 

At UFC Raleigh, Montel Jackson gains a spot in the crowded 135 prospect list after his great win. Jamahal Hill also enters the 205 list after a promising win in his UFC debut.
