July 17, 2012 12:22 pm by Sean McClure

ESPN.com updated their power rankings for the middleweight division’s top 10 MMA fighters. Topping the list as always is UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva followed surprisingly by Vitor Belfort. By most accounts Chael Sonnen despite his 2nd loss to Silva, or Chris Weidman should probably have that spot. According to ESPN they are stalemated in a tie for 3rd place. Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold sits comfortably in the middle of the pack still in 6th place. The rest of the rankings are as follows.

1. Anderson Silva 32-4-0

2. Vitor Belfort 21-9-0

3. Chris Weidman 9-0-0

3 Chael Sonnen 27-12-1

5 Michael Bisping 22-4-0

6 Luke Rockhold 10-1-0

7 Hector Lombard 31-2-1

8 Mark Munoz 12-3-0

9 Alan Belcher 18-6-0

10 Ronaldo Souza 15-3-0
