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.

Ok so how is Golstov not a top 10 HW?? & how is Larkin not a top 10 WW?? & last one how is Michael Page in the top 10?? He has no notable wins to speak of at all. In these rankings a victory over a top 10 fighter is how you get in the top 10 & Page's best win is over Gonzalez in a boring fight in which Page did nothing to try & win.

Goltsov is not top 10 right now based on competition but he could still move up soon.  

Larkin has a big fight coming up and can enter the top 10 with this one fight.  WW is a pretty strong division so I have him at 11.

Page had a slow climb to top 10 has he continued to defeat his opponents.  He's had a few wins against strong opponents but I agree, he needs to definitely step up the competition.  He's supposed to fight Daley soon which would be a big top ten fight for him.  Hopefully it happens.  MVP has been on the slow track up the ranks over the years, that's for sure.

Fair enough but at the very least Golstov should be #1 in other contenders he has beat way better fighters than Mighty Mo, Vera, & Lashley. I don't think Page had beat any strong opponents. All the top 10 & contenders have more quality wins than Page. Larkin could lose to Lima & I would still put him above Page & in the top 10.

Some good points. I will consider that if Larkin loses I will just leave him in place rather than dropping him lower. If he wins, he will make a huge leap. Also, next time Goltsov fights, if he wins, I will give him a nice jump in the rankings.

I know, I am not happy with the level of fighters MVP has faced. I can understand at first as he was young in the sport but now it is getting a bit crazy.

I forgot who it was but somebody posted it on Sherdog World Wide, somebody (who fights in Bellator) said that every time MVP gets a legit test he gets injured.

Probably some truth to it, although it looks like Daley may be next for him which will definitely be his biggest test to date; finally.
