MMA Planet’s Welterweight Rankings

Georges St. Pierre still reigns as welterweight, but Josh Koscheck will get the next crack at him after his stint on coaching the Ultimate Fighter season 12. Jake Shields stays ranked high at weltweright because it is my anticipation that he will sign with the UFC and compete in this division. Alves and Fitch appear set to do battle in August and John Hathway is the new buzz in the division. (Note: Sanchez is not ranked at welterweight because I have no idea what division he fights in.
