    Hey bro, I like that “Show Undefeated Fighters Only” has a checkbox. It’s cool to look at the list like that.

    Nice.

    Of course McGregor will drop out after 450.

    Don’t know what to tell you about Alvarez and Ferguson. That’s how the points break down.

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.
