USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie rankings, Aug. 6: Bader-OSP movement on horizon?


After a weekend of no activity among the major MMA promotions, there was no movement in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA rankings. But change could be coming soon.
Next week, No. 9 light heavyweight Ryan Bader (17-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) headlines UFC Fight Night 47 in Maine against No. 14 Ovince Saint Preux (16-5 MMA, 4-0 UFC). Their fight could be a pivotal one in the UFC’s 205-pound division, and not just for their placement in the rankings.
Recent UFC on FOX 12 winner Anthony Johnson is in need of a fight. Could the Bader-OSP winner be a good matchup for “Rumble” while the division waits for champ Jon Jones to defend his title against Daniel Cormier next month, with the injured Alexander Gustafsson waiting?
Check out the rankings above and see where everyone stacks up in the light heavyweight division. Then get ready for next week’s big headliner at UFC Fight Night 47, which also features a key lightweight matchup between No. 13 Gray Maynard and Ross Pearson.

ranking criteria


The rankings take into account a fighter's wins/losses, quality of competition, finishing rate/dominance and frequency of fights.
Fighters are no longer eligible to be ranked after they've been inactive for 24 months, either due to injuries, drug/conduct suspensions, contract disputes or self-imposed hiatuses.
Fighters serving drug/conduct suspensions are eligible to be ranked, so long as they're not inactive for more than 24 months.
To the best of our ability, fighters will be ranked in their primary weight class. Catchweight fights and bouts outside the fighter's primary weight class can have a positive or negative impact on the ranking. However, fighters can be ranked in only one weight class at a given time, and in most cases, they won't be ranked in a new weight class until they've had their first fight at that weight.
