    • […] to Fight Matrix Brown is ranked #19 and Pyle is #13. I guess if you are looking at just rankings then this fight […]

    • Pandase says:

      How gets Jesse Taylor so much credit for exhibition bouts?

      jcs, could you elaborate on that nationality adjustments thing? It affects TUF house somehow?

      Actually looking at Taylor and Okami track in the ranks
      Yushin lose to Fitch (#27 WW) by decision in a major org, drop from #24 MW to #75 WW (1/1/16)
      JT lose to an unranked welter by first round sub in a minor org, drop from #30 MW to #53 WW (1/1/15)

      Both fights were in America so I dont know what might cause such dissadjustment

    • jcs says:

      Okami is an unusual case… Have to determine whether his profile should be excluded from the nationality adjustments we do since he entered and exited in relatively quick fashion… plus considering his past UFC background.

      Update: I did find an edge case issue… investigating potential alteration.

    • Delte says:

      It’s strange because I remember checking this rankings just after Okami beat Bradley and it had actually computed, for both. I can’t remember exactly but placed Okami around #40, so it looked right.
      I looked the ranks a couple of months after and he had been relegated to his place prior to beating Bradley, #57 or so, for no apparent reason.

      Suzuki may be conidered a local fighter but he was ranked as high as #90 in 2016 by FightMatrix

      By the way, Okami dropped from #24 to #89 for losing to Fitch (#27 WW) in his debut in the weightclass. Not sure if that’s legit, it may be but coupled with the Bradley thing it just seemed like a dissadjustment on the ranking of this guy.

      Thanks for the quick response

    • jcs says:

      Okami gained points from the Bradley win, but he seems to have gotten hit by the semi-annual nationality adjustment after the fight because he spent much of the year in Japan fighting local fighters. Will need to investigate further to see if that is legit.

    • Delte says:

      There is a bug in your software, or seems to be. If so I detected one but it could mean there is more. Is there no human intervention checking this software generated rankings?

      Okami’s win over Paul Bradley (#54 WW at the time) didnt computed in the rankings. Okami actually fell some spots after the win. Could someone explain this?

    • John Short says:

      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.
