Latest UFC rankings/MMA rankings (welterweight), June 2014: Ben Askren leads No. 9 logjam

SB Nation

Because non-UFC fighters deserve to be ranked, too!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) helped reshuffle the 170-pound rankings earlier this month in the wake of UFC 174, which featured top contenders Rory MacDonald and Tyron Woodley in the co-main event (results here).

Not much change, all things considered.

But this panel also considers non-UFC fighters in the overall grand scheme of things, which is why ONE FC headliner Ben Askren is included -- and clogging up the bottom of the order -- in this latest round of fighter rankings.

Let's take a closer look at the rest of the mixed martial arts (MMA) welterweight field, sorted by the SB Nation rankings panel -- compiled by, MMA Fighting and Bloody Elbow -- to close out the month of June.

1. Johny Hendricks
2. Robbie Lawler
3. Rory MacDonald
4. Tyron Woodley
5. Carlos Condit
6. Matt Brown
7. Hector Lombard
8. Dong Hyun Kim
9. Jake Ellenberger
9. Demian Maia
9. Ben Askren
