    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.

    Mirko should be ranked higher than Fedor and Kongo at this point.

    He has been in contenders but after Cro Cop, Fernandes, and GDS entered over the last couple months, he just fell off this month.

    Mirko was unranked last month but following three straight wins in two days, he moved quickly threw the top 15 to the top 7 spot with the Rizin OWGP title. That was a very fast climb up the rankings in two days.

    I see, he should be at least in the contenders part instead of GDS or Mighty Mo IMO

    I will probably get him back in here soon. I had to get GDS in there with his recent win over Erokhin in December. Erokhin was ranked for a while so GDS moved way up with that win. Mighty Mo is in there for his OWGP win in ROAD FC. He was impressive in this tournament which earned him their title. He also recently defended the belt. That is why I have those two guys just in front of Mitrione, so basically I have Mitrione at 16.

    Fedor should not be higher than Mirko. Dude fought one guy in last 3-4 years and barley got by in that bout. I would personally have CC at the 3 spot

    We will find out soon after he fights Mitrione. Fedor has a past win over Mirko though but it was a long time ago. A rematch would make sense at this point.

    Where is Mateusz Gamrot (KSW Champion, lightweight #9 outside of UFC by fighmatrix) and Aziz Karaoglu (middleweight, #7) ?

    I definitely want to get KSW champ Gamrot in here soon. LW is almost always the most stacked division so it is hard to get everyone in. If Gamrot wins his next fight, he will enter the rankings.

    Aziz was on here for a while after his win over Falcao. He dropped a bit with the Mamed loss and was passed up by Sakara and Tokov I believe. I also read that Aziz was cut by KSW.

    It's a tough task to make ranks, but I have to say that you uprank BFC contenders way too easy.

    Zeferino is #1 at wsof and a top 10 LW for sure, maybe top 5, he is not even ranked.
    Cruikshanck (2-3 in last 5, losses against unrankeds)...why is he even ranked

    BW is a bit of a mess. You should check the results of Pancrase 279. Morcego Silva beat Ueda and Ishiwatari defended his tittle again. Okami finished the former WW champion too, it seems you didnt check these results. Peace

    I think 2017 Phil Davis can beat DC and Rumble. Ufc really need him back.

    I have Foster at 15 who has a recent win over Zeferino. I have Zeferino top 20 at LW. LW division is always stacked but he is a good fighter.

    I have Okami at no. 10 at WW.

    I fixed issues at BW. I have Ishiwatari at 9 and then Silva followed by Ueda in contenders.

    BW rankings way off. Moraes #1. Dantas #2. Caldwell #3. Not even sure Bibiano deserves a top 5 ranking. Ueda doesn't belong in top 10 either.

    LW: Folayang #3 for one win = lol. Not to mention, Tynanes already beat him. Sarnavskiy doesn't belong in the top 20, let alone top 10. agreed with above that Gamrot deserves his credit. He is elite at 155.

    MW: Khalidov #1 is a joke. Branch and Emeev deserve #1 and #2

    LHW: Branch completely overrated
