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

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

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

*Fighters that are signed to non-exclusive contracts with Strikeforce, who fight for other MMA promotions (excluding the UFC), may be included in the rankings.

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

*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 after a victory or a loss against a ranked fighter.

*A fighter will be ranked number one if he defeats the number one ranked fighter in the weight division.

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

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

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

*A highly ranked fighter can get a high ranking in another weight division after one or more wins in his new weight division.

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

*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.

Thanks Johan.

Yeah, Psycho is a beast. That heal hook was prob. top sub. of the year. I hope he can take out Askren but that will be a tough test.

I updated Miranda as the M-1 champ in the OP. Is White Wolf ever going to return? He hasn't fought in 1-1/2 years and now M-1 stripped him of his title. If he doesn't fight in the next 7 months he will be removed from the rankings.

Wagnney Fabiano is another fighter who hasn't fought in a long time. In 3 months it will be 2 years since he fought and he will be removed as well. He was suppose to fight for Bellator in the BW tournament but he got injured. That was the last I heard of him.

Thanks Willie.

Great point on Santiago. Guseinov did look terrible vs. Miranda. I expected a lot more out of him in that fight. I will have to remember to bump Santiago above him if he wins his next fight. If Guseinov loses his next fight he will take a huge hit.

I was just reading Valavicius' Sherdog stats. Pretty impressive. I will have to keep my eye out on him. I added him to a list I keep on PC at 205 for fighters to watch out for. Hopefully he signs to ONE, Bellator, M-1, KSW, or Sengoku Global.

I appreciate the comments. Thanks.

Definitely. Hopefully he gets a fight soon with Titan and we can give him the bump up in the rankings.
