      How do I get Nathan (Nate) Landwehr’s record updated on here? You have him as 5-2. He is currently 8-2.

      http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/fighter/Nathan-Landwehr:80B22CA688464A00

      Thanks,
      Ron

    • jcs says:

      That’s a good point.. I probably should move he and Nate on the next update. Then again, Conor still has the “title” here…. Makes total sense to move Nate, Conor I’m unsure about.

    • oleg says:

      Big McGregor fan, eh?

      We missed nothing, assume nothing, and there is no “thinking” involved in our rankings. Maybe read the FAQ one of these days? The rankings are generated by computer software based on official fight outcomes, fights in ANY weight class affects the fighter’s rating and ranking. Conor lost to Diaz, his rating decreased, and he lost his #1 spot.

      Now if you want to talk opinions, I think we shouldn’t even be ranking him at featherweight. His last fight was at welterweight, next fight is at welterweight, I would take a wager than he never fights at 145 again.

    • jcs says:

      Aldo is an all-time great that got caught, rebounded and beat Edgar, another all-time great.

      Conor went up and lost to Nate Diaz.

      Figure it out yet?

    • Austin says:

      ummmmmmm….. I guess you guys missed jose get slept in 13 seconds lol or you assume Jose is a better fight which in that case all i have to say is…Its not just who you guys think is better for the rankings it also about who beat who you fucking retarded mother fuckers

    • jcs says:

      Ranking current fighters in multiple divisions simultaneously is probably never going to happen.

      Two fights in a row in a division, almost always puts the fighter in that division.

      Khabib is fighting at 160 next, which we consider LW.

    • John Short says:

      Gotta first off give you guys credit on the overall quality of your rankings. I usually use this site first over any other site.

      But very strange format I’m noticing especially with the current McGregor/Diaz situation. McGregor the FW Champ is no longer the#1 FW? Diaz is #5 WW and he never beat a true WW. Dave Branch is a 2 Division Champ and becomes unranked in one Division because he successfully defends his Title? I think Ranking fighters in multiple Divisions could solve this issue. But then again it doesn’t better me personally much.

      Another example Khabib will fight next at WW but will go back to LW. Now he’ll be ranked at WW after next week. You see my point?

    • James Helm says:

      Correct me if I’m wrong but this is split into weight divisions, specific weight divisions, connor is 7-0 in FW and Frankie is 5-1

    • jcs says:

      In a division-specific system, I agree. This isn’t that, though.

    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.
