Filed under: UFC Rankings for August 2008

Our UFC top ten rankings have been updated for August 2008 and includes adjustments resulting from UFC Fight Night on July 19 and UFC 87 on August 9.

Georges St. Pierre remains on the top of the welterweight division with his successful title defense against Jon Fitch.

Brock Lesnar might have single-handedly erased the stigma of being a former WWE pro wrestler with a dominant win over Heath Herring. Lesnar lands on the heavyweights list in the number six spot.
