    Any computer that ranks Cormier above Jones, for any reason whatsoever…. is wrong.

  2. Name January 15, 2018 at 3:04 pm Reply

    That is, top-67

    rasul saythozhaev beat a fighter from the top 69 fightmatrix, but only hit the top 123. Correct it. Rasul must be in the top 80.

    rasul saythozhaev defeated the Korean from the top 69 and thus got only in the top 123? This is not fair. He was supposed to hit at least the top 80.

    Bashaev is ranked – look on Page 2:

    Looks like one of his losses was overturned to an NC and we don’t have that result updated… will fix.

    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.

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.
