      This page was mentioned on the MMA Hour with Luke Thomas this week! He was talking about how many people suddenly saying Daniel Cormier is top 3 all time.

      Anderson and Fedor are hardly mentioned anymore on the “Mount Rushmore” of MMA. I think it’s mostly recency bias, but popular opinion now on the best 4 all time would be GSP, Demetrious, Cormier, and Jones.

        Awesome. There’s definitely recency bias… and seems like people are discounting Silva’s accomplishments because of the PED issues – even though most of his career was in an era with very lax testing (or none at all) – and almost all of his UFC opponents have failed drug tests even with the lax pre-USADA testing.

        Fedor and Silva are still on my personal Mount Rushmore FWIW 🙂

      Wtf? Conor beat number 3, 20 and 35 but he is not on the list? Clearly greatest FW of all time.

      And Bj Penn at 8? With the record of 16-12-2? That looks legit af

      And Fedor…can crusher who fell out of his prime the moment he first met an elite competition. Cain, Stipe or even DC would make him look like a joke

    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.
