    Try using your brain.

    Do you really think so many fighters weighed in 8+ pounds apart in such a uniform fashion? Not only that, but fighters in different bouts weighing EXACTLY the same? Three fighters at 70.3kg.. against opponents weighing much, much more/less? Someone made this shit up.

    And yes, what I think DOES matter, because I control the database.

    Not legitimate based on what? Unless you have contrary evidence, what you “think” shouldn’t have anything to do with it. The fight was originally scheduled for 205 and was changed to 225 shortly before it occurred. I would consider Fighters Only to be a credible source.

    That page has been cited before.. and I just don’t think those results are legitimate.

    Roger Gracie should be ranked at light heavyweight. His last weigh-in was 205.25 pounds. http://www.fightersonlymag.com/latest-news/19-event-news/24319-one-championship-42-weigh-in-results

    but I do not agree with the position of Jackson and Ishii, Kongo over Minakov, as well as the sharp drop in men even below those they have recently won … leaving, goodbye.
    And advertising on your site has become very annoying …

    why does it say last fought “unranked opponent” everywhere?

    Yes, the fighters entire career record is considered in determining the rating, but the more recent a fight the more effect it will have on the current rankings. Also keep in mind that the lower you go down a divisional list, the less point separation there is between fighters. So for someone ranked in the top 10, a win or loss might only move them a few spots; for someone ranked outside of top 20, the same change in points will have a much greater impact on the change in their ranking because the point spread is so narrow. Hope this makes sense…

    and that the fight Jackson against Ishii, they fought almost on an equal footing, and not the fact that the winner is stronger, you are dropped of the Japanese 26 points … do you take into account the merits of the old Jackson?

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.
