    Chris David has never been finished. I thought that meant he had been beaten badly in one of his decision losses. But after looking into it, he actually has banged every fighter at least one of the rounds. I am interested to see how he will do in the WEC. I could see someone overlooking him. He’s an interesting guy to say the least. I went to his website. He’s been allover and has quite the inquisitive mind. No wonder he can’t be knocked out. A brain like that is must be hard to stop.

    i had another win nov 8 last year, not on sherdog(?) but on the revolution combat championships page, under the ‘warriors for warriors’ results. not sure if it makes a difference, just saw your updated results and no one has that fight in their records. never really thought i was even getting noticed, let alone put on any fancy ‘world ranking’ list. very cool and thanks… bill kamery

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.

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.
