Latest UFC/MMA rankings (pound-for-pound), Oct. 2014: Ronda Rousey pulls even with Anderson Silva

"The Spider" hanging on by a thread.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Who is the best pound-for-pound fighter in all of mixed martial arts (MMA)?

That would be reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight kingpin Jon "Bones" Jones, who drew first-place finishes across the board in the most recent SB Nation rankings, as compiled by, MMA Fighting, and Bloody Elbow.

Nipping at his heels is featherweight titleholder Jose "Junior" Aldo, while flyweight champion Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson rounds out the top three. Things get a bit murky from there, and I blame Mania's own Alex Schlinsky, who is wielding his newfound voting sword with reckless abandon.

See for yourself.
