      Blocks formed by split/majority decisions are weak.. easily broken.

      Hey Guys,

      Can we take a look at OSP’s most recent ranking? Something doesn’t seem quite right with him jumping ahead of Volkan Oezdemir after beating de Lima (was #40 LHW now #52). I feel like the block should still be in place since their fight happened only 2 months ago.

      Thanks for all the work that’s put into these rankings.

    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.
