      I didn’t want to jinx it.. but the system had a solid fix on those. No 0- or 1-loss guys… comparable experience, not much divisions shifting for anyone involved. Let’s be clear, prediction is secondary to logical rankings but in these cases I think both went hand-in-hand.

    • bj says:

      3/3 ain’t bad…

    • jcs says:

      Interested to see how it turns out…

    • bj says:

      The top three fights’ odds are opposite their ranks, that’s a bit unusual. (The first two make sense, the third is tricky because Koch switched weight classes.)

    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.
