    Roger Gracie should be ranked at light heavyweight. His last weigh-in was 205.25 pounds. http://www.fightersonlymag.com/latest-news/19-event-news/24319-one-championship-42-weigh-in-results

  3. jason August 20, 2018 at 2:46 am Reply

    Try using your brain.

    Do you really think so many fighters weighed in 8+ pounds apart in such a uniform fashion? Not only that, but fighters in different bouts weighing EXACTLY the same? Three fighters at 70.3kg.. against opponents weighing much, much more/less? Someone made this shit up.

    And yes, what I think DOES matter, because I control the database.

  4. Serg August 20, 2018 at 2:39 am Reply

    Yes, all I know everyone has their own opinion in the Sherdog ranking Minakov above Congo, figtmatrix believes Minakov weaker of the Congo, and I do not agree that you will not be invented … Congo lost, though, and held at the bottom his shorts, and Congo has not won one who is stronger Minakova, so his position is unreasonable – that’s my opinion.

  5. Serg August 20, 2018 at 2:39 am Reply

    and here we see that Congo, who lost Minakov climbed higher because he win Volkov decisions , that Minakov laid in the first round and then defeated the Congo … do Minakov became weaker by the fact that he beat the two did not the strongest opponents? Do not it too early then take off from a pedestal of winners, losers towering over them? I would understand it if the Congo would beat a fighter of the top ten ….

  6. Serg August 20, 2018 at 2:39 am Reply

    So do you get that Congo has become stronger Minakova because somehow beat Volkov , who had prematurely broken Minakov? I would agree if the Congo beat someone who can be stronger Minakov .

  7. Serg August 20, 2018 at 2:37 am Reply

    Why Oleynik above Minakov when he defeated number 26 almost a year ago, and Minakov win number 13

  8. jason August 20, 2018 at 2:37 am Reply

    This is just an unfortunate case of two fighters’ careers going against the norm since they fought.

    You’d typically expect Minakov to challenge himself with even tougher opposition and Kongo to keep losing.

    Kongo has stayed active at 3-1, beat better fighters and the loss being a split decision against a quality fighter. Minakov sat out over a year and has only fought against much lesser opposition.

    Kongo is 40, yes, and I’d probably pick Minakov to beat him again, but the system doesn’t care about age.

  9. oleg August 20, 2018 at 2:37 am Reply

    Sherdog ranking is based on opinions, ours is not. Hence no point in arguing about it really…

    Where is Mr. John Olav Einemo? Granted, I have only seen him fight once (& he lost!), in my hardly expert opinion, I can’t see 20 HWs that would definately beat him. (Was anyone else impressed when he powered his leg out of half guard in Rd 1 v. Pee Wee Herman? Pretty impressive.)

    Sherdog has Brian Heden listed with a victory over “Big” John Brown, but he in fact has a victory over John “Doo Doo” Brown.

    Both of these guys train at Dixson’s dungeon in Biloxi, but Big John Brown is the Super Heavyweight, and John Doo Doo Brown is the Heavyweight. You can tell by the difference in the color of their skin, Big John has lighter skin than John Doo Doo. Here is a link to the fight

    JCS, how can werdum not be number one??? he beat Fedor (the guy you had ranked at 1) and he ends up at number THREE? behind brock lesnar who now has a record of 5-2? surely beating the number one guy makes werdum the number one guy, as that’s what usually happens in all your other rankings (e.g. edgar became number one when he beat penn). please explain!

    where can i find your list of the “big 15” ? maybe put it in the last fought in drop down box , by listing the “big 15” alphabetically first (i see 5 orgs in blue in the drop down now) then listing the rest of the smaller ones alphabetically next.

  35. Jonathan August 20, 2018 at 2:25 am Reply

    No problem…I am like obsessed with this site, it’s the least I can do.

  36. jason August 20, 2018 at 2:25 am Reply

    Yes, I do have administrative clearance.

    If you ask me, if it is old, MMA, and not an obvious work, it should go onto the fight finder.

    A guy like Coleman probably gets credit for that because of name value and I’m sure he counted that in his record within the UFC. I believe there is a bit of hesitancy to alter these OLD records… but its starting to happen more frequently. Recently, Royce Gracie’s “loss” against Harold Howard was removed, which I am in total agreement with since the fight never occurred.

    Another problem is honing in on an exact date. It always looks more official when you have a date/show details/etc.

  37. jason August 20, 2018 at 2:25 am Reply

    I appreciate it! The problem affected everyone who never won a fight in the big 15.

    Speaking of which, its probably due time I take a look at who we recognize as the Big 15. We’re sort of like an accrediting institution 🙂

  42. jason August 20, 2018 at 2:23 am Reply

    The list has been reassessed and updated.

  43. Mark August 20, 2018 at 2:18 am Reply

    Can you be more specific as to the criteria for a “quality performance”? I notice that Fedor Emelianenko’s quality performance percentage is only 54.5, for example, and Josh Barnett’s is 50. This seems low for two very successful fighters, especially considering that Aaron Rosa, just as an example, is at 73.7%.

  44. Sem August 20, 2018 at 2:16 am Reply

    Yes Kharitonov fought Mizuno, but i was refering to a match (hopefully) in march 2011 versus Werdum. And since Werdum is currently ranked #3 i wondered about the boost it will give Kharitonov scoring on this list, because Kharitonov will win I think.

    Thank you for your time.

    What the f**k? Why Fedor is 3rd?! Yes he losed to Fabricio but it is only one loose! His record is still amazing no one can compare to it. And by the way, Fedor won with Arlovsky who won with Werdum!! I don’t know how can Werdum be over him and example over Overeem.

  56. oleg August 20, 2018 at 2:12 am Reply

    Winner is ALWAYS ranked over the loser immediately following a fight. Also Werdum has beat Overeem in the past.

  57. BlueSlims August 20, 2018 at 2:12 am Reply

    I know it must be hard to rank the heavweights now but I think it should be like this:

    2 Brock Lesnar
    3 Cain Velasquez
    4 Alitar Overeem
    5 Junior Dos Santos
    6 Fabricio Werdum

    Ok so yes Mercer beat Tim Sylvia, but for god sake he probably will not fight MMA ever again so it is all just a waste of a good ranking spot. Besides if he was to fight regular basis he would in my opinion have a very short MMA career because he is 48 for god sake. Although i would like to see him fight Severn just for kicks.

    i think even if mercer fights again he will be gone . because i doubt he gets that lucky punch in again. silvia fought a horrible fight , totally under estimated his ability to get KTFO was too confident in his reach.next guy to fight mercer will take him down and rip his arm off or chock him into lala land.

    Check out the list of fighters to beat Tim Sylvia. Fedor, Nog, Arlovski, Mir, Couture, and Mercer.

Besides, when are we gonna see Buffalohead fight again? The most entertaining fight I’ve ever seen. Plus, the guy’s a single father of 4 and 2 weeks before the fight was flipping burgers at Denny’s. Gotta root for a guy like that.

    Thanks for visiting DJ.

    Although Ray only has one fight, he obliterated one of the best heavyweights in history. Sylvia had only lost to Fedor, Big Nog, Mir, Couture, and Arlovski up until that point.. all of these guys but Mir are Top 10 historically.. and Mir is probably Top 20.

    Our system is computerized.. so to it, Mercer is a god — at least for now.

    We don’t have the Wes Combs fight. Sherdog doesn’t… MixedMartialArts.com doesn’t… ?? We’ll add it in.

    He won’t get credit for going the distance with Rogers. He still only won a third of the fight (by rounds), which isn’t enough of a factor to gain rating points in a 3-round fight, regardless of the opponent. However, the win against Combs should get him ranked above Combs for the time being.

    Sorry for repeat posting, but I forgot to mention that Brock Lesnar is in for a big surprise when he faces Shane Carwin. I haven’t seen any of Lesnar’s punching connections do any damage in this sport yet. On the contrary, anything Carwin hits, turns to mush! Can’t wait to see Lesnar’s chin get tested. He’ll fall faster than Gonzaga!

    Todd Duffee is the next big thing in the heavyweight division. Not too many people have seen him fight, but he can crush skulls like Shane Carwin. Don’t sllep on Dave ‘Pee Wee’ Herman either. These two are some big & fast white boys who could fight!!!

    Here’s my 2 cents…
    – JDS should be above Cain.
    – MMA fans under estimate Overeem to much, although as a person it’s ok to dislike him I guess.
    – Because Werdum won over Fedor, Brock (4-1-0) isn´t better than Fedor (31-(1?!)2-0).
    – Brett Rogers is way to high in the list imo.

    From what I’ve heard over this comming summer “Fedor vs Barnett” “Randy vs Big Nog” and “Lesnar vs Mir 2”.

    So that has me wondering… if Fedor wins who’s left in affliction to fight?? but if Barnett wins does he jump sraight to #1??… Ok. Now Lesnar/Mir. If Lesnar wins will there be a Lesnar/Mir 3?? and if Mir Wins again what happens then??

    Ok. i don’t have any quesions really about the Nog/Randy fight. My guess is the winner gets a title shot and the loser will fight another top contender like Shane Carwin or sombody.

    If anybody can answer my questions please post em thank you

    The reason mir is above lesnar is because he beat him plain and simple. the winner will always be ranked higher than the loser. It doesnt matter if he was beating him up for the first couple of seconds the fact is that he lost, so obviously he’s going to be ranked lower it ain’t that hard to figure out.

    I just realized that the nature of this ranking system is representative of the general mind of an MMA fan in a lot of ways. If a fighter loses a fight, especially if he is lower ranked, he falls off the (public) list. MMA fans generally write off fighters when they lose fight, supporting the adage “you’re only as good as your last fight.”

    Kinda scary to live and work in such a mercurial sport where your stock rises and falls like the tides.

    Just saw your mention of the Ofiu fight. It’s marked as amateur on Sherdog, so unless it was an Exhibition, I can’t imagine it was anything but pro considering Ofiu’s history. Then again, Palemia appears to be still fighting amateur — so no idea here. Gonna leave it be.

    I actually first heard of Joey Palemia when he was on this list a few months ago. If he was only fighting amateur, how did he show up on this list?

    Also, I think the fighter “David Olivia’s” last name is actually “Oliva.” If you look up that name, Oliva is his last name on the youtube video posts and the announcer says “Oliva” as his last name (not that announcers don’t make mistakes). It’s minor, but for the sake of accurateness I guess it’s worth a thought.

    Sure. Fedor had a weak recent opposition profile. Werdum was much lower than Fedor when he won, dominantly I may add. The end result, was what you see now.

    Had Fedor still been dominating like he was 5 years ago and Werdum was a Top 5 fighter, it’d be a different story.

Barrett, however, scored multiple takedowns and controlled position for much of the fight (except for the scrambles where Grabowski gained dominant positions and submissions). Barrett deserved 29-28, end of story.

    Our primary rule is that the winner of a fight must be ranked higher than the loser directly after the fight. This is why Werdum is above Fedor.

    These rankings are an absolute joke.

    Werdum belongs at about #8, and Fedor doesn’t belong in the top 10, because if you haven’t beaten a Top 10 HW in the last 5 years what the hell are you doing there?

    Werdum has nearly twice as many points and it is a decent drop to fall below Nelson. It will be close.

    I saw Big Nog being ranked #7 in 01/01/2001 by your generated rankings. Being a big fan of his, I wonder if Werdum finishes him (highly probable imo)it will be the first time in 12,5 years he’d be kicked from the top 10. Could you varify this?

    Also, it would be cool to have a list of, lets say 10 people, other than divisional dominance but based on being in the top 10 of the fighters weightclass (or any weightclass if they switch). Is it possible you guys could make something like that? That way you could see ‘rank’ the impact of various fighters on the sport, and their durability.

    Thanks interesting link but I think those rankings are also sufferring from the hangover effects of the Fedor era. Even in my updated versions I have Allistair and Werdum ranked very high. This is only because of the way they have entered the UFC in style against real challengers like Brock and Roy. I don’t think either guy will dethrone JDS. I think Cain and JDS may split among many fights but it is too close to call and for now I would have liked to see Cain have another matchup first against Roy, Frank or the Werdum vs Russow winner to get another shot. Silva is not even the Strikforce Grandprix Finalist I hardly think he deserves the spot as UFC titleshot gatekeeper. As or more happy and excited to see Struve vs Miocic coming up as I was for Cormier vs Barnett, but no less interested. If Brock came back into my rankings right now by magic he is number 10, bumping Fedor.

    Lesnar proved not only that he is deserves to be the champ, but that he can take a punishment. Sure his stand up HORRIBLE. But we all saw that comming. He also proved that he can take a beating, and that his days in the WWE means he’s a puss. He went out there and got destroyed in the first round. But then came back in the 2nd and proved he’s a real champion. He took his beaten and didn’t give up. He also showed how tramendacly well conditioned he is. It takes a lot to give a pounding, but also takes just as much if not more to take a pounding like he did.

    If he works on his standup and his submissions, then he could be one of the best pound for pound best fighters in the UFC and possibly MMA. If he would have not gone to the WWE and tried MMA he could be one of the greatest Heavy’s of all time. Then the UFC could only dream of a Fedor-Lesnar fight like boxing dreams of a Pacquiao-Mayweather match.

    Do you have administrative clearance to edit Sherdogs fight finder? A lot of the early vale tudo fights in Brazil are not documented on fight finder either, like Zulu vs Enson Inoue, or a few Zuluzinho fights I’ve seen, as well as others. Where does the line for “no holds barred vale tudo” end and “MMA” begin? Also, isn’t Mark Coleman vs Takada basically known as a work? Yet it’s up on the fight finder. It is another fine line to walk.

    For having only really lost 1 fight (not counting the cut)in a career that has spanned 35 fights and some of the best competition available. Everyone makes mistakes…Fedor has only ever made 1.

    p.s. Cain Valasquez has even said Fedor is the best now and ever.

    when does mercer come off the list or at least get moved to # 200+. i dont agree with your response on august 22nd . even if mercer was a 22 year old prospect he still should not be rated in the top 20 after one lucky knockout. as proof i see many young fighters in your rankings that are 5-0 and up to 13-0 that are outside the top 20 or even top 100.and also mercer is not a 22 year old he is a washed up boxer who caught silvia on an off night and got a lucky punchers ko.

    Konrad is part of the Bellator HW tourney in the finals, Herman is being stonewalled on the undercard of Bellator, beating Michael Kita (who lost to Damian Grabowski, who lost to Konrad). Whether Herman is a better fighter than Konrad is irrelevant if Konrad is fighting better opposition more frequently.

    How is Arlovski ranked #13 even though he has lost his past 3 fights, 2 of those to opponents outside of the top ten, and has not defeated a top 20 fighter since Werdum in 2007, assuming Werdum was even top 20 at the time. If Werdum was not top 20, at the time, then Arlovski’s last top 20 win was probably against Buentello back in 2005. I am starting to think that the FightMatrix ranking system places far too much emphasis on a fighter’s past accomplishments. If a fight took place over 3 years ago or if it was more than 12 fights previous (12 because it allows for fighter’s who compete more often) then it should no longer count towards a fighter’s ranking. Tito Ortiz is another good example. Ortiz has not won a fight since beating Ken Shamrock in October of 2006. Yet, he is still ranked #22 solely becuase of his past accomplishments. You really, REEEAAALLLLLYYY need to change this.

    I have a question, and maybe jcs or someone else at the site can help answer it.

    My question relates to Mark Hunt’s point rating, since beating Frank Mir. I believe Mark was ranked at #8 before the fight, and after beating Frank (#10), he jumped to #4. This wouldn’t normally catch my eye, as it was a quality victory with a KO finish. It did, however, alert me that he jumped JDS and Miocic by a fair margin. He has losses against both of these guys. The Miocic fight is pretty recent, while the JDS fight was admittedly nearly 3 years ago. JDS has had losses since, but Miocic has not, and he had a KO victory over Arlovski in his next fight, who is ranked higher than Mir.

    Is there a reason why both these men are ranked lower? From jcs’s comment above, it appears Miocic is being blocked by JDS for his loss to him. Wouldn’t the same be true for Hunt as it relates to Miocic? I really enjoy the objectivity to these rankings, but admittedly, every time I’ve glanced at the HW rankings the past two weeks I have been personally placing Hunt at #6 behind these two.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply, jcs. Your explanation makes a lot of sense.

    For as much as the top 3 at women’s BW has been deemed an exercise of rock, paper, scissors the HW division is like an 8-12 person game, except all of the players have rock, and the rocks are actually boulders, and the boulders are their fists, which can suddenly knock out any of the other players. It’s pretty incredible how many fighters there are in the top 10 at HW right now who have a win against fighter X, but also have a loss against fighter Y, where fighter X beat fighter Y.

    I don’t envy your task. It’s very possible this will naturally sort itself out in the coming two months, though. There are a lot of HW main events scheduled.

    Ah, give it a rest already man. Kongo has always been a dirty fighter, that is a fact, but not a quantifiable one in terms of a rating system based on official results. Unless he gets DQd or has points deducted in a fight. In this particular case he still lost the fight, so it’s not only inquantifiable but also irrelevant.

    Minakov is the Bellator champion, now tell me how meaningful that is when Bellator can’t get him a fight even though he is healthy, and he’s forced to figt subpar competition in minor leagues? If Bellator ever overtakes UFC in terms of talent, we will start awarding a rating bonus to their champions. Until then, his belt is as irrelevant as Kongo’s short holding.

    The loss to Kimbo was not an official pro bout, plus it wouldn’t affect Mercer’s win over Sylvia as it came prior.

    Satoshii Ishii’s debut had been a lightning fast knockout over Tim Sylvia, everyone would have been riding his nuts as a definite Top 20 fighter. Everyone would have been proclaiming him the next big thing, and how they couldn’t wait for more fights. The thing about fightmatrix is it’s a computerized system, and as such is completely impartial. There are certainly times where exceptions should be made and where problems might enter the system when one fluke upset happens, shooting that person up the rankings, and then pulling everyone who beats that guy afterwards up the rankings as well, but there are also major problems with sunjective analysis from human rankers as well. I think Fight Matrix provides a good counterbalance.

    JDS, Mir, Velasquez, Overeem, , Big Country, Carwin, Barnett, Kongo, Hapa, Big Nog, Scaub, Santos, Cormier, Russow, Werdum, Fedor, Gonzaga, Struve, Herman, Sanchez, Arlovski, Sylvia, Monson, Conrad, Lopez, Karitonov. Top 25, Update; Current retirements accounted for are Lesnar and Cro Cop. JDS manifests highlight reel splendour into title gold. Overeem is the biggest overall mover, capitalizing on a shot. Werdum gets a big opportunity coming up against Roy Nelson and Fedor and Monson switch places so to speak.. and both prove themselves still very capable in the process.

    I’ll add fights if they aren’t documented, if I think they are legit. I just discovered a cache of Russian/Ukranian fights between 1995-2005 that did not exist on Sherdog. I added some to their database, and the rest to mine — their interface is just too time consuming but I help out when I can. The problem with those fights, is that you don’t know if they were sanctioned, what the rules were (if any) and if any were works/fixed — it happened quite often in Russia and RINGS as far as I understand. I think the general rule of thumb for those is that if they were MMA, then add them… I don’t think that applies to pre-1996 RINGS.

    The ones you mentioned, I’ll look into and come back. When they are recent like that and don’t make it onto the sites, they are either unsanctioned, or looked over. Diekmann/Smith probably just got missed. No idea about the Fulton one though.

    Yes, the fighters entire career record is considered in determining the rating, but the more recent a fight the more effect it will have on the current rankings. Also keep in mind that the lower you go down a divisional list, the less point separation there is between fighters. So for someone ranked in the top 10, a win or loss might only move them a few spots; for someone ranked outside of top 20, the same change in points will have a much greater impact on the change in their ranking because the point spread is so narrow. Hope this makes sense…

    We do occasionally update the ranking algorithm but never to benefit an individual fighter. Aldo and McGregor are not even ranked in the same weight class at the moment and there’s no reason to keep Conor ranked at FW until he fights at that weight again.

    Head to head results only matter immediately after a fight. As soon as one of the fighters fights again, the ranking will change based on the outcomes. Beating someone doesn’t mean you will be ranked above the fighter you beat forever. The more recent the fight, the more impact it has on the current rankings. We went over the Kongo/Minakov scenario many times so no need to beat that dead horse again.

We went over the Kongo/Minakov scenario many times so no need to beat that dead horse again.

    Serg, maybe they changed the algorithm and lessened the importance of head-to-head fights so that Jose Aldo could still be ranked higher than Conor McGregor.

    There is almost no plausible explanation for Minakov below Kongo. Minakov beats same fighters as Kongo and better, and Minkaov beats Kongo! System used to be better, maybe has become edited for desired results

    Thanks for taking the time to reply, jcs. Your explanation makes a lot of sense.

    For as much as the top 3 at women’s BW has been deemed an exercise of rock, paper, scissors the HW division is like an 8-12 person game, except all of the players have rock, and the rocks are actually boulders, and the boulders are their fists, which can suddenly knock out any of the other players. It’s pretty incredible how many fighters there are in the top 10 at HW right now who have a win against fighter X, but also have a loss against fighter Y, where fighter X beat fighter Y.

    I don’t envy your task. It’s very possible this will naturally sort itself out in the coming two months, though. There are a lot of HW main events scheduled.

    Thanks again

    It’s a complicated situation, because of how the system works AND how the involved’s careers have panned out in recent times. This kind of reminds me of Clark Griswold in Vegas Vacation when they visit the hoover dam.. he keeps shoving gum in the holes, only to have water come out of another hole.

    You are correct, JdS is blocking Miocic, who is strangely enough blocking Arlovski. Hunt’s win over Mir cleared the block that Miocic had over Hunt, because Miocic was much lower rated when he beat Hunt than he is now. The block JdS would have had over Hunt has expired.

    I’ll take a deeper dive into this, just to ensure there’s no bug. I fear though, that this is the dark side of the blocking mechanism rearing its head… and maybe there should be a secondary blocking clear.. an exception, if you will, because Miocic’s ascent should have been enough to clear this block… it just so happens that the perfect (or imperfect) situation has arisen to prevent it.

    I have a question, and maybe jcs or someone else at the site can help answer it.

    My question relates to Mark Hunt’s point rating, since beating Frank Mir. I believe Mark was ranked at #8 before the fight, and after beating Frank (#10), he jumped to #4. This wouldn’t normally catch my eye, as it was a quality victory with a KO finish. It did, however, alert me that he jumped JDS and Miocic by a fair margin. He has losses against both of these guys. The Miocic fight is pretty recent, while the JDS fight was admittedly nearly 3 years ago. JDS has had losses since, but Miocic has not, and he had a KO victory over Arlovski in his next fight, who is ranked higher than Mir.

    Is there a reason why both these men are ranked lower? From jcs’s comment above, it appears Miocic is being blocked by JDS for his loss to him. Wouldn’t the same be true for Hunt as it relates to Miocic? I really enjoy the objectivity to these rankings, but admittedly, every time I’ve glanced at the HW rankings the past two weeks I have been personally placing Hunt at #6 behind these two.

    Ah, give it a rest already man. Kongo has always been a dirty fighter, that is a fact, but not a quantifiable one in terms of a rating system based on official results. Unless he gets DQd or has points deducted in a fight. In this particular case he still lost the fight, so it’s not only inquantifiable but also irrelevant.

    Minakov is the Bellator champion, now tell me how meaningful that is when Bellator can’t get him a fight even though he is healthy, and he’s forced to figt subpar competition in minor leagues? If Bellator ever overtakes UFC in terms of talent, we will start awarding a rating bonus to their champions. Until then, his belt is as irrelevant as Kongo’s short holding.

    This is just an unfortunate case of two fighters’ careers going against the norm since they fought.

    You’d typically expect Minakov to challenge himself with even tougher opposition and Kongo to keep losing.

    Kongo has stayed active at 3-1, beat better fighters and the loss being a split decision against a quality fighter. Minakov sat out over a year and has only fought against much lesser opposition.

    Kongo is 40, yes, and I’d probably pick Minakov to beat him again, but the system doesn’t care about age.

    After the Kongo fight, Minakov was rightfully ranked ahead of him. His ranking decayed after a year of inactivity, and two guys he fought since then were not highly ranked. Meanwhile Kongo stayed active and beat higher ranked fighters – nothing subjective about it.

    Minakov sat out for over a year and has been fighting weaker competition since his return. Kongo stayed active and got a couple of wins over better fighters. They’re only 4 points apart which is not a meaningful difference anyhow.

Also I have a number of uk girls that fight in Cage Warriors that have asked why they haven’t been ranked as yet. Kerry Hughes, Lj Adams, Molly McCann are just a few that have asked.
    Finally Ian Freeman (UK Heavyweight) and Andrew Punshon (UK Middleweight have both retired and Freeman as not fought for over your specified time i think.

    Werdum has nearly twice as many points and it is a decent drop to fall below Nelson. It will be close.

    Sem,

    I can’t say for sure how the numbers will break down until it happens, but if Nog gets finished by Werdum he likely will fall out of top 10.

    As for your second suggestion, have you checked out our all-time rankings?

  403. Sem March 5, 2013 at 9:39 am Reply

    I saw Big Nog being ranked #7 in 01/01/2001 by your generated rankings. Being a big fan of his, I wonder if Werdum finishes him (highly probable imo)it will be the first time in 12,5 years he’d be kicked from the top 10. Could you varify this?

    Also, it would be cool to have a list of, lets say 10 people, other than divisional dominance but based on being in the top 10 of the fighters weightclass (or any weightclass if they switch). Is it possible you guys could make something like that? That way you could see ‘rank’ the impact of various fighters on the sport, and their durability.

The combined record of those nine fighters is 51-62.

    Thanks interesting link but I think those rankings are also sufferring from the hangover effects of the Fedor era. Even in my updated versions I have Allistair and Werdum ranked very high. This is only because of the way they have entered the UFC in style against real challengers like Brock and Roy. I don’t think either guy will dethrone JDS. I think Cain and JDS may split among many fights but it is too close to call and for now I would have liked to see Cain have another matchup first against Roy, Frank or the Werdum vs Russow winner to get another shot. Silva is not even the Strikforce Grandprix Finalist I hardly think he deserves the spot as UFC titleshot gatekeeper. As or more happy and excited to see Struve vs Miocic coming up as I was for Cormier vs Barnett, but no less interested. If Brock came back into my rankings right now by magic he is number 10, bumping Fedor.

    Brent, I don’t think we will ever do a fan vote based ranking. Here’s a site that does a fan vote Top 10, if you’re curious:

    http://www.mmaplayground.com/top-10-mma-fighters.aspx

  441. Brent June 12, 2012 at 11:38 pm Reply

    1 Junior Dos Santos, Cain Velasquez, Alistair Overeem, Frank Mir, 5 Fabricio Verdum, Travis Browne, Roy Nelson, Stefan Struve, Mike Russow,
    10 Shane Carwin, Daniel Cormier, Mark Hunt, Stipe Miocic, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, 15 Ben Rothwell, Chieck Kongo, Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva, Cole Conrad, 20 Fedor Emelianenko

    I would love for this site to hold a vote where the fans vote on each division like this to help sort out who is who at the top? Showcase us in the historical section under a fans rankings category. Feel free post what you think..

By no means is this perfect (before you start bitchin) and you may disagree with some of the spots (i.e. Lesnar), but by and large it seems to be a good, objective indicator of where the fighters are at. Please do take this with a grain of salt. It's just one source – but still pretty cool nonetheless. Source […]

    I actually first heard of Joey Palemia when he was on this list a few months ago. If he was only fighting amateur, how did he show up on this list?

    Also, I think the fighter “David Olivia’s” last name is actually “Oliva.” If you look up that name, Oliva is his last name on the youtube video posts and the announcer says “Oliva” as his last name (not that announcers don’t make mistakes). It’s minor, but for the sake of accurateness I guess it’s worth a thought.

  583. jason March 18, 2011 at 7:50 pm Reply

    Just saw your mention of the Ofiu fight. It’s marked as amateur on Sherdog, so unless it was an Exhibition, I can’t imagine it was anything but pro considering Ofiu’s history. Then again, Palemia appears to be still fighting amateur — so no idea here. Gonna leave it be.

    Sherdog has Brian Heden listed with a victory over “Big” John Brown, but he in fact has a victory over John “Doo Doo” Brown.

    Both of these guys train at Dixson’s dungeon in Biloxi, but Big John Brown is the Super Heavyweight, and John Doo Doo Brown is the Heavyweight. You can tell by the difference in the color of their skin, Big John has lighter skin than John Doo Doo. Here is a link to the fight

    Ryan/Keeney fight was added. It probably got missed because that organization specializes in tag team matchups and other gimmick matchups.

  588. Jonathan March 16, 2011 at 9:24 am Reply

    Rei Zulu, Zuluzihno’s father, isn’t even on the fight finder, which he should be in my opinion since he was a prolific fighter in his time. I know so many of his matches are undocumented, but there is video that exists of him.

    It’s been said that some of Dan Severn’s fights, as well as a couple of Tony Bonello’s fights, were works as well.

    Does the Keeney/Ryan fight look legit?

  589. jason March 16, 2011 at 8:18 am Reply

    Yes, I do have administrative clearance.

    If you ask me, if it is old, MMA, and not an obvious work, it should go onto the fight finder.

    A guy like Coleman probably gets credit for that because of name value and I’m sure he counted that in his record within the UFC. I believe there is a bit of hesitancy to alter these OLD records… but its starting to happen more frequently. Recently, Royce Gracie’s “loss” against Harold Howard was removed, which I am in total agreement with since the fight never occurred.

    Another problem is honing in on an exact date. It always looks more official when you have a date/show details/etc.

    Do you have administrative clearance to edit Sherdogs fight finder? A lot of the early vale tudo fights in Brazil are not documented on fight finder either, like Zulu vs Enson Inoue, or a few Zuluzinho fights I’ve seen, as well as others. Where does the line for “no holds barred vale tudo” end and “MMA” begin? Also, isn’t Mark Coleman vs Takada basically known as a work? Yet it’s up on the fight finder. It is another fine line to walk.

  593. jason March 15, 2011 at 2:33 pm Reply

    I’ll add fights if they aren’t documented, if I think they are legit. I just discovered a cache of Russian/Ukranian fights between 1995-2005 that did not exist on Sherdog. I added some to their database, and the rest to mine — their interface is just too time consuming but I help out when I can. The problem with those fights, is that you don’t know if they were sanctioned, what the rules were (if any) and if any were works/fixed — it happened quite often in Russia and RINGS as far as I understand. I think the general rule of thumb for those is that if they were MMA, then add them… I don’t think that applies to pre-1996 RINGS.

    The ones you mentioned, I’ll look into and come back. When they are recent like that and don’t make it onto the sites, they are either unsanctioned, or looked over. Diekmann/Smith probably just got missed. No idea about the Fulton one though.

    Sure. Fedor had a weak recent opposition profile. Werdum was much lower than Fedor when he won, dominantly I may add. The end result, was what you see now.

    I think your rankings and system are the best I’ve been able to find. I think you may be placing too much value on historical records though. For example: Josh Barnett(#10)… Hasn’t even fought anyone currently ranked in the Top 10 since 2006. Hasn’t fought anyone who -at the time- was ranked in the top 10 since 2006. Hasn’t beaten anyone ranked inside the top 10 since 2006. The best win he has had in the past 4 years is Pedro Rizzo (#16). His second best fight over the past 4 years is over Monson(#32). There is no way he should be ranked #10; Imho.

    I just realized that the nature of this ranking system is representative of the general mind of an MMA fan in a lot of ways. If a fighter loses a fight, especially if he is lower ranked, he falls off the (public) list. MMA fans generally write off fighters when they lose fight, supporting the adage “you’re only as good as your last fight.”

    Kinda scary to live and work in such a mercurial sport where your stock rises and falls like the tides.

    How is Arlovski ranked #13 even though he has lost his past 3 fights, 2 of those to opponents outside of the top ten, and has not defeated a top 20 fighter since Werdum in 2007, assuming Werdum was even top 20 at the time. If Werdum was not top 20, at the time, then Arlovski’s last top 20 win was probably against Buentello back in 2005. I am starting to think that the FightMatrix ranking system places far too much emphasis on a fighter’s past accomplishments. If a fight took place over 3 years ago or if it was more than 12 fights previous (12 because it allows for fighter’s who compete more often) then it should no longer count towards a fighter’s ranking. Tito Ortiz is another good example. Ortiz has not won a fight since beating Ken Shamrock in October of 2006. Yet, he is still ranked #22 solely becuase of his past accomplishments. You really, REEEAAALLLLLYYY need to change this.

    How come certain guys (like Brian Heden) drop 50 something spots without losing a fight, and then someone like Francimar Bodao jumps 54 spots without fighting? Is this because some of their past opposition did well or poorly and it effected them?

    We don’t have the Wes Combs fight. Sherdog doesn’t… MixedMartialArts.com doesn’t… ?? We’ll add it in.

    He won’t get credit for going the distance with Rogers. He still only won a third of the fight (by rounds), which isn’t enough of a factor to gain rating points in a 3-round fight, regardless of the opponent. However, the win against Combs should get him ranked above Combs for the time being.

    He just won a title match against Wes Combs who is ranked at #211 on your list. He also just went the distance against Bret Rogers who is ranked at #12, and who has never been taken the distance in any of his fights. Whats up with that?

    Agreed. I don’t think Fedor had the recent opposition to keep him and Werdum ahead of Cain/Lesnar. However, I’m not sure you can argue that they deserve to be lower than they are either.

    “Looking bad”, doesn’t matter. Only objective results are computed. The computer sees a KO win against a quality opponent in his last fight. Maybe a downfall of computerized systems.. but its fair across the board. Brock’s loss was to an undefeated, rising Heavyweight. Fedor has had a string of weak opponents in recent years, even though he demolished almost all of them.

    Thanks again for the replies, Id love to see a detailed breakdown of how the computerised bit works.

    The Quality win and the 17% makes sence to me.

    Id love to see a detailed breakdown of how the computerised rankings work because Lensar 5-2 better than Fedor 32-2 comfuses me because Fedor has 3 quality win and Lesnar looked so bad in his last two fights… I know Fedor hastn been the most active but I have 1.Werdum 2.Fedor 3.Cain

    But Lesnar staying 2nd at 5-2 seems odd, I’d love to see the breakdown if you have them anywhere? Your rankings seem a great Idea and honestly closest thing to a Legit MMA world ranking there is. Im really interested to see a breakdown if you have one or anything on the points because Brock having so many more points than Fedor I cant get my head around seeing as he looked so bad in his last 2 fights. Cheers.

    There was a detailed post quite a while back, summing up what was a quality performance. Basically, its an outcome where a fighter fought reasonable opposition and the performance was a quality one. I know that’s broad, but an example would be.. if Cain Velasquez fought #200 in his next bout, regardless of the outcome, it would not be a quality performance. If he fought #11 and won by split decision, this wouldn’t be either — it’d be disappointing. But if he knocked out #5, this would be. Make sense? There’s exact math, but its deep in the code..

    When going down a division, points are raised. When going up, vice versa. Its done with a formula and is based on the upper weight-limits of the divisions involved. This change averages about 17% — not huge. This has just been the commonly accepted theme throughout. USUALLY when a fighter moves up, they find it a harder go, and vice versa. Notice the caps on USUALLY – as a computerized outfit, we depend on the norms. The divisional strengths just work their way out, independent of this point change.

    He carried his Light Heavyweight points with him to Middleweight, which are then converted to Middleweight points (increased). Its the only way to make division changes work.

    I dont quite get how the Points system works, Its a great website but a few things dont add up for me. For example…

    Wanderlei is ranked 4th at Mw after 1 win in the devision and a pretty poor previous record. He is my favorite MMA figher but I wonder how he ended up so highly ranked. I have him top 15 in my own rankings but dont understand how he got so maby points after beating Bisping….

    Id love to know a bit more in depth of how the points for each fighter are worked out.

    Opposition strength is factored in. For example, Fedor didn’t get a quality performance for beating Hong Man Choi. However, he also didn’t get to #3 beating entirely scrubs. Its just another metric.

    Can you be more specific as to the criteria for a “quality performance”? I notice that Fedor Emelianenko’s quality performance percentage is only 54.5, for example, and Josh Barnett’s is 50. This seems low for two very successful fighters, especially considering that Aaron Rosa, just as an example, is at 73.7%.

    Satoshii Ishii’s debut had been a lightning fast knockout over Tim Sylvia, everyone would have been riding his nuts as a definite Top 20 fighter. Everyone would have been proclaiming him the next big thing, and how they couldn’t wait for more fights. The thing about fightmatrix is it’s a computerized system, and as such is completely impartial. There are certainly times where exceptions should be made and where problems might enter the system when one fluke upset happens, shooting that person up the rankings, and then pulling everyone who beats that guy afterwards up the rankings as well, but there are also major problems with sunjective analysis from human rankers as well. I think Fight Matrix provides a good counterbalance.

    Grabowski def didn’t do enough. Do takedowns not count for anything anymore? Strikes from the bottom? Those strikes were better than Barrett’s, yes. Barrett, however, scored multiple takedowns and controlled position for much of the fight (except for the scrambles where Grabowski gained dominant positions and submissions). Barrett deserved 29-28, end of story.

    Heres the thing, you can’t beat Lesnar on the ground. he’s improving his sumbmissions and his wrestling is phenominal. You probly aren’t gonna be able to knock him out, considering the hardest hitting heavyweight wailed on him for a whole round and still won. So the only way to beat him is going to go the distance, by out fighting him. That’s gonna be hard becasue he’s gonna eventually take you down. His power, speed, and size is enough to take you down, but to go with technique, your finished. You aren’t gonna be able to stop that. Another way is to get lucky and catch him with a submission (Mir).

    In my eyes Lesnar is the heavyweight in the UFC and possibly MMA. HE gonan dominate that weaight class for a while, and is gonna be a powerhouse. Could own that divison like GSP and Silva does. If he can work on his standup game, wow…He could be the best heavweight ever.

    Cain Velazquez is a great fighter/brawler/wrestler. He’s not going to knock Brock Lesnar out for sure, unless he takes him the full five rounds with the “stick & move”!!! That’s a hard thing to do because Lesnar is quick and will surely get Velazquez down on his back where his size and strenght will be too much for the “Brown Pride”. Hey, you never know though…….

    WOW All along, I really though Shane Carwin was going to KO Lesnar really badly in the 1st round!!! I was in awe when Lesnar took those power punches to his grill and still managed to get out of that round on his feet. Sure, his face looked like “stir fried shit”, but he came out and submitted an already exhausted Carwin really quickly in the second round. Shane now understands that Lesnar’s head is harder than a brick wall WOW

    It’s not always that straightforward.. but in that scenario, you are probably right.

    If say Pat Barry beat dos Santos, he would not be ahead of Carwin.

    So if Frank Mir were to beat Dos Santos he would be ahead of Carwin?

    Because Werdum beat Fedor afterward…

    So your saying if Todd Duffe at 49 beats Lesnar, then Duffe would go all the way into the top 10? Which would possibly mean Lesnar is out. Thats retarted.

    Ok well how come Dos Santos beat Werdum, but Werdum is higher than Dos Santos?

    Our primary rule is that the winner of a fight must be ranked higher than the loser directly after the fight. This is why Werdum is above Fedor.

    Lesnar proved not only that he is deserves to be the champ, but that he can take a punishment. Sure his stand up HORRIBLE. But we all saw that comming. He also proved that he can take a beating, and that his days in the WWE means he’s a puss. He went out there and got destroyed in the first round. But then came back in the 2nd and proved he’s a real champion. He took his beaten and didn’t give up. He also showed how tramendacly well conditioned he is. It takes a lot to give a pounding, but also takes just as much if not more to take a pounding like he did.

    If he works on his standup and his submissions, then he could be one of the best pound for pound best fighters in the UFC and possibly MMA. If he would have not gone to the WWE and tried MMA he could be one of the greatest Heavy’s of all time. Then the UFC could only dream of a Fedor-Lesnar fight like boxing dreams of a Pacquiao-Mayweather match.

    Lesnar deserves to be the best Heavyweight. He’s the UFC champion, and right now it looks as if he could dominate for a while. As I do think Fedor is better, he did lose. I think he’s the best Heavyweight…Ever. But he lost, which should drop him down the rankings a bit. I just don’t agree with Werdum being #2. Here’s my rankings…

    1)Lesnar
    2)Fedor
    3)Velasquez
    4)Werdum
    5)Carwin
    6)Overeem
    7)Dos Santos
    8)Barnett
    9)Mir
    10)Nog

    Lesnar did a good job (relly did, real man), but still, don’t fucking belive this ranking (not that i am a Russian)but it’s relly suck. Look all Ya to this ranking and look to the won matches and think again, is it right? Where Fedor stays!!!
    But who am I? ufc 116 was good, must watch it all!

    The Rankings are great, just glad Ray Mercer is not a head of Fedor that would be absurd. Dave Herman is a great heavyweight prospect BTW, hope he will be in the Bellator heavyweight tournament.

  835. Sem July 1, 2010 at 7:28 am Reply

    Here’s my 2 cents…
    – JDS should be above Cain.
    – MMA fans under estimate Overeem to much, although as a person it’s ok to dislike him I guess.
    – Because Werdum won over Fedor, Brock (4-1-0) isn´t better than Fedor (31-(1?!)2-0).
    – Brett Rogers is way to high in the list imo.

    ALISTAIR OVEREEM IS A TOP 10 QUALITY HEAVYWEIGHT. NO DOUBT, BUT I’VE SEEN ALL OF HIS LOSSES BY KNOCKOUT AND CAN’T HELP BUT THINK THAT HIS NOODLE IS CRACKED. ALL I’M SAYING IS THAT FIGHTERS THAT GET KO’D TOO MANY TIMES NEVER RECOVER NEOROGLOGICALLY. IT’S JUST A FACT. ALL OF THOSE HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHTERS RANKED ABOVE HIME DESERVE TO BE. BOTH EMELIANENKO BOTHERS, OVEREEM, SILVA, ROGERS, AND WERDUM SHOULD COME THE UFC WHERE THE REAL CHALLENGERS ARE. OH I FORGOT! WERDUM ALMOST LOST HIS HEAD IN THE RING AGAINST DOS SANTOS!!! SCRATCH THAT!!!

    I heard that Soukoudjou was getting annihilated by Dave Herman before that illegal/accidental knee to the head. Dave “Pee Wee Herman” is RAW talent and will be a very good heavyweight fighter if he gets the right training.

    People shouldn’t be so surprised at Fedor’s humiliating defeat this past weekend. He hadn’t fought any fighter close to that caliber in a long time. Werdum is an opportunist and knew exactly what to do when Fedor tried to pound him out. He expected Fedor to go for the kill because everybody, including his striking coach did and Werdum wanted the fight to be off his back ASAP. Too much pressure was on Fedor to make quick work of Werdum and I don’t understand why. Werdum is extremely confident, patient, and dangerous. He was in good spirits throughout the entire card knowing all to well exactly what Fedor was going to do and exactly how he was going to counter-act it. UFC has the better heavyweights by far and that’s why Werdum went to Strikeforce after getting nearly decapitated by Junior Dos Santos. I don’t have a problem with the rankings other than Brock Lesnar being out of the cage for awhile, not having enough fights under his belt or knockout power on his feet. Shane Carwin will surely knock his block off. Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velazquez should fight to determine the next heavyweight title challenger! Werdum and Emelianenko should be behind the superior Velazquez and Dos Santos in the new rankings. Strikforce, take a back seat to the UFC please.

    Werdum belongs at about #8, and Fedor doesn’t belong in the top 10, because if you haven’t beaten a Top 10 HW in the last 5 years what the hell are you doing there?
