    I left out… “for a Brazil” card… Was thinking it, but didn’t type it.

    Anyway, at least there’s Lomachenko/Linares.

    Kind of weak IMO, especially the main card. Not particularly excited for the main event, Dern-Cooper on main card is a disgrace, and Belfort-Machida feels like it should be taking place in Bellator at this point.

    Pretty solid card…

    Also don’t forget that Lomachenko/Linares is on Saturday as well..

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.
