      Not sure what you meant by: “Not sure of your point. He beat them both.”

      We have a fighter search….

      It appears we have him at 7-5, not 8-4.. so there is an issue with data. We will fix and see if this resolves the problem.

      EDIT: We had him as losing against Sindone, so this definitely impacted his rating.

    • Richard Wittmann says:

      I wonder how you rank people. Matt Brown from Wisconsin at 135 isn’t ranked with a 8-4 record. His last 2 wins against guys you have ranked.John Castinada and Dominic Sindone. What’s the deal?

      Highly rated Feather = Higher rated Bantam

    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.
