Latest UFC rankings/MMA rankings for women's pound-for-pound and men's heavyweight division following UFC 168

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Now that UFC 168 is in the books and winners emerged in both the women's bantamweight and men's heavyweight divisions, it's time to go back and see how their respective performances affected the SB Nation top 10 rankings.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) brought a championship doubleheader to the pay-per-view (PPV) airwaves with UFC 168, which took place back on Dec. 28, 2013, inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Full results here.

Chris Weidman successfully defended his 185-pound title against Anderson Silva (again) in the main event, which means a major change in the middleweight rankings, something your fearless representatives at SB Nation addressed just last week.

See how it all shook out here.

In addition, Ronda Rousey held on to her 135-pound strap by beating Miesha Tate for the second straight time in the women's division, while Travis Browne continued his 265-pound ascension thanks to his epic elbows of doom against Josh Barnett.

That said, it's time for the rankings collective -- comprised of, and -- to battle it out inside the war room to see who makes the list of 10 best.

Here's where we're at:

Women's Pound-For-Pound Rankings:


1. Ronda Rousey
2. Miesha Tate
3. Cat Zingano
4. Jessica Aguilar
5. Alexis Davis
6. Jessica Eye
7. Barb Honchak
8. Sara McMann
9. Sarah Kaufmann
10. Miesha Tate

Men's Heavyweight Rankings:


1. Cain Velasquez
2. Junior dos Santos
3. Fabricio Werdum (tie)
3. Travis Browne (tie)
5. Josh Barnett
6. Mark Hunt
7. Stipe Miocic
8. Alistair Overeem (tie)
8. Gabriel Gonzaga (tie)
10. Frank Mir

Expect this list to change sooner rather than later.

Overeem tries to stay alive in the heavyweight title chase when he fights Mir next month on the UFC 169 PPV fight card, just a few weeks before Rousey makes a quick turnaround to defend her bantamweight belt against fellow undefeated Olympian Sara McMann.
