Current Fighter Rankings – Update

Instead of the previously referenced nine weight classes, my rankings will include the twelve major MMA weight classes.  They will be based on the weight classes specified by the Unified Rules of Combat and are detailed below.

  • Heavyweight – Men: 205.1 – 265 lbs.
  • Light Heavyweight – Men: 185.1 – 205 lbs.
  • Middleweight – Men: 170.1 – 185 lbs.
  • Welterweight – Men: 155.1 – 170 lbs.
  • Lightweight – Men: 145.1 – 155 lbs.
  • Featherweight – Men: 135.1 – 145 lbs.
  • Bantamweight – Men: 125.1 – 135 lbs.
  • Flyweight – Men: Up to 125 lbs.
  • Women’s Middleweight: 135.1 – 145 lbs.
  • Women’s Welterweight: 125.1 – 135 lbs.
  • Women’s Lightweight: 115.1 – 125 lbs.
  • Women’s Featherweight: 105.1 – 115 lbs.

These rankings will only include fighters who have competed in the last 18 months.  There will be 25 ranked men and 15 ranked women in each weight class.  Rankings will be updated every Monday in weeks where ranked fighters have competed.  I’m aiming to have all initial rankings posted by Monday, January 17.
