Pound for Pound Rankings

Since combat sports such as mixed martial arts, boxing, and wrestling frequently categorize the fighters into weight divisions, Pound for Pound is a ranking used to decide who the better fighter is in relation to their respective weights, adjusted to compensate for weight classes.
