      set up the filter outside of ufc & bellator
      Clicking on the next rank will reset the filter

      For some reason the upcoming Bellator fight between Michael McDonald and Eduardo Dantas is showing up being held in whatever Belgorod Oblast MMA Cup is

      Which specific ad are you having problems with?

      WHOEVER thought having these ads that constaly refresh was a good idea is an absolute fucking moron. I’ve used this site for years but rarely pop in anymore because this website is usable because of them.

      Alaoui is on the cusp of the list… mid 20s in points.

    6. marty June 27, 2016 at 8:54 pm Reply

      how many pts does Xavier Alaoui have? he’s 7-0 granted against mostly debuting fighters? I suspect he will be fighting on a bigger show soon with Firas as his coach

      Because Kelleher has more points than Garbrandt.

      For better or for worse, Sherdog is our main data source.

      Why is brian kelleher ranked higher than Cody garbrandt. And Dominic mazzota hasn’t been updated lately

      The “low ranked” Leandro Issa? Isn’t/Wasn’t Issa ranked above Sirwan? Saenz’s win was a split decision as well.

      When a consistently much lower ranked fighter wins over a consistently much higher ranked fighter, that winning fighter’s new ranking is volatile.

    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.
