    ____________________________________________________________________________________________

    Global-MMA Ranking Rules

    *This ranking system includes fighters that are not under exclusive contract to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

    *Top level fighters that leave the UFC may be ranked in subsequent rankings.

    *Fighters that sign exclusively to the UFC will be removed from the rankings.

    *Rankings are based on a fighter's overall career results and recent performance.

    *A fighter will be ranked number one if he defeats the number one ranked fighter in the weight division except under certain rare circumstances where the number two ranked fighter clearly deserves to move into the number one ranking position.

    *Victories over highly ranked fighters and losses against non-ranked opponents have a larger effect on the fighters ranking position.

    *A fighter will not necessarily take the place of his opponent in the rankings after a victory or a loss.

    * A fighter can move up a maximum of three spots with impressive victories over a fighter ranked below him; however, there is no limit if the fighter earned a title or a tournament championship with the victory.

    * An unranked newly crowned champion who earned a title in a major league MMA promotion can enter the top ten even with a victory over an unranked fighter.

    *A fighter will drop in the rankings if he does not fight regularly against high level competition.

    *A top ten ranked fighter can become ranked in another weight division after one or more wins in his new weight class.

    *A fighter can be ranked in two different weight divisions.

    *Champions and fighters from prominent promotions will have an advantage over champions and fighters from promotions with lesser competition.

    *A fighter will be removed from the rankings if he does not fight for two years.

    *Fighters that are signed to multiple promotions will have their promotions listed based on the following criteria: 1) championship held in a promotion, 2) predominant promotion the fighter fights in, 3) promotion last fought in.

    *Rankings will be updated every month.

    Overall good, remarks:

    Where is Krylov?? And Roger Gracie fought last time in 2016

    He's not a MW, he's a LHW

    Where is Abdul Aziz Aqwertyuiopasdftov, ACB champ that beat him twice??

    Where is Karakhanyan?

    I don't agree with your rankings, well in Heavyweight.

    Where is Sergei Pavlovich, the Fight Nights Champion?

    Roger Gracie is retired.

    Aung La is the LHW and MW champ in ONE now.

    Great post!

    Next month I will remover Roger Gracie and put in Krylov. I had Krylov in here in previous months but he fell off the contenders list.

    He was fighting at MW but moved to LHW I believe. I will move him next month. I will bring back Vladimir Mineev to MW and remove Rampage from LHW when I make this update.

    I will replace Eduard with Abdul next month.

    I had Georgi ranked in the past but I will get him back on here next month. He will replace Yokota.

    Thanks for the comments. They help to make the rankings better.

    I am aware of Pavlovich. I have him right on the cusp of entering the rankings. There are only 15 spots with the contenders included. After his next win I will get him on here or if someone else drops off. Good suggestion though.

    Roger Gracie will be dropped off next month and Nemkov will take his place in the contenders. Thanks for the update.

    Really can't stand Gamrot but I think he should be ranked higher.

    Btw. ONE fighters are overrated.

    Sure that is no problem at all. I like the input because it helps improve the upcoming rankings. I can't always get everyone on there but I keep a list of potential future contenders on my PC.

    Nice ranking. We have a person at Global-MMA who handles the flyweight, strawweight, women's featherweight, and women's flyweight rankings. I will let him know your suggestions for his rankings. He hasn't done his June rankings yet so that is why they are not posted. Below are his rankings from April:

    Yeah, Gamrot is pretty solid. If he wins his next fight I will give him a decent bump up in the rankings.

    I try to be totally unbiased with the promotional rankings. ONE has put together a decent roster. We will see how they do in the future. They use to be even higher with Askren at number 1, Aoki up there, and Bibi at number 1 in the past.
