The Unified Women’s Mixed Martial Arts Rankings are assembled each month by a panel of journalists from multiple MMA websites and publications. These rankings are acknowledged by most promotions as the only official women’s mixed martial arts rankings assembled by division and weight class.

Fighters who have not competed inside their division within the past 12 months are not eligible to be ranked at that weight. Fighters who vacate a weight class will no longer be ranked in that division.

Promotional abbreviations in italics denote which major organisation(s) each fighter is currently signed to and/or has most recently competed for.
