Suggestion: create two new ranking lists

Postby ron101 » Sun May 28, 2017 10:51 pm

First of all I'm a very big fan of FightMatrix. And I was the one who created your Wikipedia article, and added you on different high profile fighter pages to get you going there :)

My suggestion for the website, I feel requires low work with high reward. How about you create a page of MMA gyms/Teams ranking?
You already have the info on every fighter Gym displayed (so no extra work here). And a ranking criteria from this 2015 article is solid and usable
http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2015/7/29/90 ... n-mma-news

I think this new ranking page would be very popular. And I would definitely use it on Wikipedia existing articles, with a reference to you
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_martial_arts#Gyms
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_T ... ning_Camps

Actually, on second thought, an MMA promotion rankings would also be great and fun. And even more easily done. The criteria would be MMA promotions with the most top 15 or top 30 fighters on their roster, in all divisions combined.
People love these kind of comparisons. The UFC and Bellator are easily recognizable as #1 &#2 but what promotions are under them with this objective comparison ?

On Wikipedia a top tier MMA promotion is one with at least 3 top 15 ranked fighters. Once again your data would be used for sure.

Cheers
Ron

Thanks for the wiki article!

We have top promotion and teams planned for the future. Can't put a date on it but you'll definitely see it one day.

Hi Oleg,

Somebody already started implementing my idea using Fightmatrix data:

https://www.reddit.com/r/MMA/comments/7 ... _based_on/

https://www.reddit.com/r/MMA/comments/7 ... ix_123117/


Source of the graphs is apparently here (in Russian):
https://m.vk.com/mma_matrix

FFS, i love Fightmatrix. Use this great idea on the website (maybe contact the guy?).

Thanks

Very cool. Someone took the time to screen scrape us and come up with all that.

Ranking promotions, gyms/teams, countries is fairly high on my to-do list... Can't promise any timeframe, but now that we got the new layout out of the way it's definitely on the horizon.

I'm definitely going to contact the guy, even if I have to join stupid VK just to give him props for his ingenuity. And looks like he did it all in Excel, that's serious dedication. :D

Actually VK is probably a good platform for me to promote on...

Great.

I've just noticed that ScorecardMMA.com has already promotions ranking
http://scorecardmma.com/scmma/index.php ... nd-ranking

Interestingly Their top 10 are quite close to Vk's Fightmetrix results, and a few are also ranked differently in the top 10. (Could be just because of 6 months gap between the two rankings).
