    Kind of nuts to see Roxanne Modafferi ranked 6th, but most females fight in the other weightclasses i guess.

  2. jason August 19, 2018 at 11:06 pm Reply

    Will move Viviane back to 115.. had the last fight set wrong.

    I believe Wall/da Silva is 125.

  3. David Street August 19, 2018 at 11:06 pm Reply

    Note: XFC has a Fly weight tourney with fighters like: Antonia Silvaneide da Silva 4-1, Taila Santos (4-0) , Poliana Botelho (3-1) ,
    Poliana Botelho (3-1)

    Hope you are watching these fighters as they should be making your list as well as the Silvana Gomez Juarez 4-0 vs. Linn Wennergren 2-1 Fly weight fight.

    Do not know if the fight with Fly weight fighter Terissa Wall vs. Kate Da Silva who is a feather weight, do not know what weight this fight will be fought at?

  4. David Street August 19, 2018 at 11:06 pm Reply

    Viviane Pereira “Sucuri” 7-0-0
    Is not a Fly weight anymore as she has been doing well in the Straw weight tourney. Waiting on who wins it and how soon the UFC will swoop them up.

    Next Fight: [X-treme FC Straw Tourney] Viviane Pereira (7-0), Dora Perjes (7-0), Liana Ferreira Pirosin (3-0), & Marina Moroz (5-0).
    All of these are top 20 fighters.

    A very obscure bug that only affected Women that would’ve worked itself out in the next update. Probably never hit it before. Will resolve for the future. Maia should be at about 29pts and will be on the next update.

    Because our rankings aren’t division-specific.. they are division-adjusted.

  10. Chromium May 24, 2018 at 8:31 pm Reply

    Could probably add another 5 or 10 fighters at this point?

    @Aaron Jupp: “This is a great site and I won’t mention all the countless errors and there are a LOT of them but really this is a great site.” Backhand much?

    Regarding Flyweight rankings: due to the international inconsistencies in weight divisions, for ranking purposes Women’s Flyweight actually goes up to 128.9 lbs. I don’t agree with all the delineations on FightMatrix. Like it says so right on the top of the page. FightMatrix actually doesn’t rank people in a different weight class who miss weight really badly (Rose was close).

    As for fighters needing to make weight twice, Fight Matrix has always ranked them in the division they last fought, unless someone goes up in weight for a single fight and gets slaughtered (this is the Matt Lindland Rule), in which case they aren’t given any penalty or reward. This is also only in cases where it’s assumed they aren’t sticking around. Doing it any other way would result in some crazy inconsistencies. Conor McGregor had only fought at Lightweight once consecutively before winning the UFC title, for instance. Even if you mean non-consecutive fights, BJ Penn was the #1 Welterweight in the World having fought after this first fight at that weight class. And even if you just mean people going down instead of going up, that would mean the site would have been unable to rank Kenny Florian at Featherweight when he was #2 in the world, just before he fought Aldo. And that’s just off the top of my head. There’d be too many weird inconsistencies like that.

    I realize I’m responding to a months old comment but still.

    I understand this is a TOUGH job to keep rankings. And to be clear
    1. I have nothing against Jessica Clark.
    But how can you rank an athlete in 125 who has never actually made that weight???

    There are a LOT of issues such as this in the WMMA section of your rankings due to the fact that these girls take fights where they can get them and not in their natural weight class. I STRONGLY SUGGEST you look at this. Perhaps making a 2 fight in that division before they change into a weight class rule for you?
    Otherwise your formula L’s do NOT work accurately and you are forever making adjustments for women’s divisions because it is still growing in the big promotions unlike the men’s divs.

    Just my suggestion. I won’t mention the other countless errors, as the site is great and I know it’s a tough job!

    A better question is why some of the fighters with little to no record as flyweights are being ranked? It seems like there’s a very questionable and unmerited bias towards competitors with almost no record at all as flyweights simply by virtue of their UFC pedigree in another weight division not withstanding that their records were unimpressive there. Maybe that’s simply a reflection of how thin the division is but it also implies there’s not much value to having a ranking system for the division at all.

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.
