Welterweight Rankings

I've got good news and bad news for all you mixed martial arts (MMA) fans out there.

The good news is, I've been "removed" from the SB Nation rankings committee. The bad news is, I've been "removed" from the SB Nation rankings committee. That's right, you won't have Nostradumbass and his wacky picks to make fun of anymore, despite the fact that they were always compiled under the influence spot on.

And I've been replaced by Hemmi, to boot.

1. Georges St. Pierre
2. Johny Hendricks
3. Carlos Condit
4. Jon Fitch
5. Martin Kampmann
6. Jake Ellenberger
7. Josh Koscheck
8. Rory MacDonald
9. Nate Marquardt
10. Demian Maia

MacDonald has a chance to advance with a win over B.J. Penn at UFC on FOX 5 next month in Seattle, as does Demian Maia, who takes on Jon Fitch at UFC 156 in Rio. Nick Diaz isn't ranked because he's currently suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) and ineligible to compete.
