      Yes, winning against quality competition.

    • Gui says:

      In Australia we have Quite a few Bantamweights that deserve to be ranked here. Aden Hawke is 4-1 (4 in a row), Ben Ngyuen, Shantaram Maharaj, all have fought in the last 6 months but are not featured? Are there other qualifing parameters other than actually winning fights in the past year??

    • Frankie Bollinger says:

      Bollinger moving to feather weight
      please feel free to underestimate us there
      thank you

    • jcs says:

      We included TUF bouts in the ratings computation (at a slightly reduced effect) retroactively.. a few months ago.

    • Chromium says:

      Um, any particular reason Chris Holdsworth is #15? Because looking at his record I can’t make heads or tails of it. He’s 6-0. His best win is Chico Camus, who is #76, and Davey Grant, who is #128, and he doesn’t seem to have fought higher than Featherweight (I could be wrong), or fought anyone notable on the indies. Were his Ultimate Fighter house wins counted or something?

    • Bryan says:

      The UFC told him to drop down to 135, cause they need more in that division. I say we should see him there soon.

    • jcs says:

      I’ll look at it… He has dropped two divisions really quickly AND with wins. Very unusual situation.

    • Aaron says:

      Yeah, how did that happen? It would be tough to convince me that he could beat anyone else in the top 50.

    • oleg says:

      Woah, Rob Emerson lands at 7? Not a name I though I’d ever see in the bantamweight Top 10…

    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.
