      why do you have someone who is caught at the reception prohibited items still retains first place?

    • Alliny says:

      How can you have m1 as a top 20 promotion, but not WSOF?

    • Ryan says:

      UFC only

      1 Jon Jones
      2 Daniel Cormier
      3 Anthony Johnson
      4 Alexander Gustafson
      5 Glover Teixeira
      6 Ryan Bader
      7 Ovince St. Preux
      8 Jimi Manuwa
      9 Mauricio Rua
      10 Rashad Evans

    • oleg says:

      We drop fighters after 450 days of inactivity, but their rating starts to decay after a year. So Jones is currently in decay, but he is so far ahead of #2 in terms of rating points that there is no chance of him falling below Cormier. If he doesn’t fight in the 450 day timeframe since his last fight, he will be dropped from the rankings completely until he returns.

    • Serg says:

      Why do you not fall Jons, which is already more than a year does not act? Minakov have fallen below the vanquished, because the weak won, and Jons did not favor, but it’s still at the top, you can omit it scary? hand does not rise?

    • oleg says:

      Weak division, full of has-beens and never-will-bes beyond the top 5. Who would you have in the Top 10 over Evans?

    • Spence says:

      Not sure how Rashad Evans is still in the top 10 with no wins since 2013 but other than that, I like these rankings.

    • X says:

      Is Marcin Prachnio even based in the UK let alone British?

    • oleg says:

      OK maybe this will help you understand. Let’s go back in time to before their first fight, when Newton was #23 and Lawal was #11:

      http://www.fightmatrix.com/historical-mma-rankings/ranking-snapshots/?Issue=287&Division=2

      Go forward from there to present and you shoud see how thing got to be the way they are. Keep in mind that Lawal fought and won at HW.

      It’s really pointless to ask “why is X ranked over Y”. Unless X and Y just fought each other and neither fought anyone else since, there is no guarantee that the winner remains higher that the loser.

    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.
