A follow-up to a previous post on the Welterweight All-Time Picture.
Zoom in on the Fitch ceiling and below.
First, some general info:
- Everyone’s overall trend is upward in the chart due to increased quality of data, amongst other things. Essentially, the “value” of a point decreased.
- Some of the “noise” caused by test runs were cleaned up from the previous post.
- Current Welterweight All-Time rank is listed next to the fighter names.
- All fighters listed have been in the Top 10 at Welterweight since we started storing the career rankings.
- Only Top 10 point totals are displayed for the listed fighters.
- Fighters with dotted data lines are no longer in the Top 10.
- I’ve often commented to readers that effects on the list are not entirely immediate. There is usually some immediate effect to results, but as you can see in the graph, the term “rolling average” is probably a much more accurate way to explain the movement. The methodology was created in such a way for many reasons.
- Kiuma Kunioku saw his all-time point eligibility change from Welterweight to Middleweight for his early Pancrase accomplishments. This was due to some minor division re-adjustment and how we considered those pioneer day results. The other “dotted line” fighters were simply surpassed.
