I have another question though. Why is Cris Cyborg ranked above Ronda Rousey? She tested positive for steroids, got stripped of the title and suspended for a year. Shouldn't that have her taken off the list entirely? For that matter why is King Mo on the list?
Some rankings systems take suspensions into account, and some don't. We chose the latter as rankings systems based on the former remove the fighter out of the top 10 and insert them immediately upon their return. This thus defeats the whole purpose of moving up and down the rankings, i.e. fighters who are out of the top 10 should earn their way back in, not just temporary removed.
We based our decision instead on activity of a fighter. Criteria D takes this into account.
