      Same issue I mentioned in the male bantamweight rankings, the upcoming Bellator card with Budd vs. Nogueira is coming up listed as Belgorod Oblast MMA Cup — seems like the problem is with that entire card

      Sorry just saw the “pink vs Dandois” article link.
      Yes I am 100% sure as I know the athlete and her corner team (Miesha and brother) and that article is NOT ACCURATE. It was at 140 pounds.
      But I will find a counter article for you as I understand you will need online data support.🙏

      This section is REALLY BADLY out if sync. Sorry guys /gals.

      You have no Dandois who is the no.1 ranked 155 pounder. For some reason she’s still in 135 division from 3 fights ago.

      Megan is above Reina even though untill this weekend Reina has never lost a fight?

      Germaine no.2 who isn’t at 145 she and Holly are 135ers. (Just because the UFC puts them in 1 match you move entire careers?)

      Pam is also a 135er who took 1 match at 145, so you shouldn’t remove her from her 135 standing??
      And no Gabi Garcia? Who is 4-0 who is not anything unbelievable but based on your OWN calculation explanations should land her in the top 10?

      Why are you not bothering to fix any of this? WMMARankings is accurate, sohaa Sherdog?

      Please fix for the fans. Thanks.

      Thanks for the reminder.

      It’s going to be a “wait and see” for 145 and 125.. depends on what the UFC does with them.

      Right now.. 145 isn’t even close.

      105-125 are fine.

      135 may get another 5 here soon.

      Do you plan on expanding the amount of women you have in the ranked list not only in the featherweights but across the women divisions?

      145 wmma division.
      You’re missing Cindy Dandois her fight with Pink was at 140 so was a 145 fight!
      JUST FYI.

    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.
