With a hard left, Chris Weidman went from an up-and-coming fighter to maybe the next big thing in mixed martial arts. Weidman watched as former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva bobbed, weaved and clowned around in the UFC 162 octagon. Then it happened -- the punch that put an end to Silva's undefeated record in UFC matches and dethroned him from atop the Pound-for-Pound rankings. Our experts have Jon Jones atop the new rankings, with Silva fourth and a previously unranked Weidman fifth. Do you agree with the new rankings? Click the photos below to have your say.
