Fight Matrix Fighter Profiles are Live!

The outgoing Sherdog fighter profile links have been replaced with internal fighter profile pages.  This is certainly long overdue and we’ll likely be making revisions to these over the coming weeks and months.

Example: Urijah Faber

The fighter profile pages currently include:

  • Basic Profile Information
  • Current Ranking Information
  • Highest Previous Ranking
  • All-Time Ranking
  • Quarterly Generated Ranking History
  • UFC Records
  • Fighter Statistics (Ranking Hover-Over)
  • Last Fight Information
  • Next Fight Information

Soon, we hope to add information from MMA Records & Statistics as well as MMA Awards and eventually, Lineal Championship History.

Furthermore, there will very likely be odd movement within the quarterly generated histories that is not so obvious in the history pages themselves (highly ranked fighters taking one-off matches in other divisions).  If you see any of this, please shout.

    Do you know of a another site that tracks fighter’s gym/team affiliation that’s more accurate than Sherdog?

    Btw, keep in mind that one thing Sherdog often gets wrong in their profiles (in addition to most recent weight), is Fighter Association. When I did some Women’s Strawweight rankings (a Top 40), I had to go to considerable lengths to correct some of them. Lynn Alvarez, for instance, does not fight at “Shogun MMA”, that is her managing agency, and unlike Team Blackhouse her managing agency is not any sort of fight team. She trains mostly in two separate gyms in Vegas (best I could determine is she trains out of Fight Capital and House of RYU)). Mei Yamaguchi isn’t “Freelance,” she fights out of Wajutsu Keishukai GODS (same gym as Emi Fujino). Then there are redundant listings listing the same gym with slightly different names. Most prevalent of all are outdated listings. For instance Brianna VanBuren no longer trains out of something called “Antdawg’s Ush,” she actually trains out of American Kickboxing Academy now. And those are just some Women’s Strawweight examples.

    So please consider those things when doing profiles.

    The fighter name is a link to their Sherdog profile. Guess we should make it a little more obvious 🙂

    So, think y’all could leave a link to the fighter’s Sherdog records in the FightMatrix profiles? They’re about separate things after all. I’ve always thought of FightMatrix as being a tremendously useful tool for scouting prospects, but since it doesn’t have their individual fight listings, I always thought the link to Sherdog complimented FightMatrix very nicely.

    Last fight color cleaned up, and points added!

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.

Before asking where a specific fighter is ranked or why they aren't ranked:


- We update the rankings once per week, usually on Sunday or Monday.

- Fighters who have not fought in 450 days or more ARE NOT RANKED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

- Use the "Fighter Search" option in the upper-right of the page. The fighter may be ranked in a different division.

- Most of the divisions have multiple pages beyond this one. See the clickable ranges above and below the ranking table.

Furthermore, we do not maintain the "next fight" data. This is gathered from Sherdog. Any issues regarding this data should be forwarded to them.
