      Yeah I really like Fight Matrix Rankings and they are my go to to compare my rankings to. Then I see stuff like Nate Diaz ranked at #6 at WW just because he fought a former FW who’s now a LW at WW and lost but yet Emil Meek is in the Top 10 and Rory MacDonald is outside of the Top 10. That really messes these Rankings up. Here’s my current persoanl WW Top 10 Rankings
      1. Woodley 2. Thompson 3. Maia 4. Lawler 5. MacDonald 6. Condit 7. Masvidal 8. Larkin 9. Cerrone 10 Magny

    • Kevin says:

      Wtf is Nate Diaz doing ranked 6th at WW lol

    • Jess Sell says:

      Just noting that Jos Eichelberger – welter weight – has had a fight since Josh Cavan – he has a win over Clarence Jordan in Feb 2016.

    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.
