    jcs if joachim hansen beats bibiano fernandes do you think he will be ranked at least number 3 at featherweight?

    I really wish the system you used took into account horrible judging like the debacle of Sengoku’s tournament. Michihiro Omigawa should be deemed a fringe top 15, and certainly not above Marlon Sandro. What a gross call by Sengoku. I urge everyone to watch the fight and honestly say Marlon Sandro did not completely dominate Omigawa.

    Richy. Can you please sign up and present your questions in the forum where I can better address them?

    Thanks.

    question. the dream 8 featherweight grand prix is set at a weight class of 139 and under. most of the participants will be under 139lbs. shouldn’t this make them all bantamweights in your ranking?

    i’m mostly interested in where Yoshira Maeda should be. he fought in the WEC at bantam so I would lean toward putting him there.

    chase beebe also fought at bantam for the WEC. if joe warren fights in the usa i see him at bantam due to him wrestling at 132lbs. atsushi yamamoto has fought most his career below 139lbs and i’m sure he weighed in lower than that for dream 7. please help with some insight.

    – Cruz is at Bantam
    – Bradstreet doesnt have enough quality wins, plus I think he may be ranked at 155 now.
    – McMahan is at Bantam
    – Din Thomas is in the rankings

    Dominick Cruz (12-1) only loss was to Faber.
    Olly Bradstreet (33-9) win over Steve Siler.
    Jared McMahan (11-0)

    ..and i guess Din Thomas and Gamburyan will be added soon.

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.
