Cordillera - Sport-ratings.com website ranked two Cordillerans among the best pound-for-pound fighters in the list of the world's top mixed martial artists. The list consists of the top 100 athletes in their respective weight classes.
Included in the top 100 athletes are ONE's flyweight champion Danny "King" Kingad, and ONE's bantamweight champion Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon.

The 23-year old Kingad is listed at the 4th spot in the flyweight division and ranked 60th among the best pound-for-pound fighters when he defeated Reece McLaren by split decision last August 2 at ONE: Dawn of Heroes. 

Kingad is scheduled to fight number one pound-for-pound champion Demetrious Johnson on October 13 in Tokyo, Japan.

Meanwhile, Ifugao native Kevin Belingon is ranked 5th among the best fighters in the bantamweight division and listed in the 37th place of the best pound-for-pound fighters.

The 31-year-old Belingon claimed his standing spot in the list by riding a 6-fight winning streak, brought by wonderful performances. 
Belingon is also set to face Bibiano Fernandes who ranked 3rd in the bantamweight division for the fourth time in Tokyo, Japan.

The two faced each other for the 3rd time last March 2019 but ended up in a disqualification when Belingon delivered illegal blows to the back of the head of Fernandes.
