      Thanks.

      I’ve got a few changes I want to make so probably will end up updating before you read this.

    • clayton says:

      Hi guys just wanted to let you know that Paul Taylor the UK heavyweight is actually 7-3-0 not 6-4-0 its on his sherdog report. Also I have a number of uk girls that fight in Cage Warriors that have asked why they haven’t been ranked as yet. Kerry Hughes, Lj Adams, Molly McCann are just a few that have asked.
      Finally Ian Freeman (UK Heavyweight) and Andrew Punshon (UK Middleweight have both retired and Freeman as not fought for over your specified time i think.
      This isn’t a complaint i just thought it would help you out. You guys do a great job.
      Cheers,

      Clayton

    Please use the box below to submit a comment. Before clicking the "submit" button, review the information above the button, or else your comment is subject to deletion.

    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.
