Thanks Willie.

Yeah, if Guram loses this fight he will drop to the contenders list.

Hopefully Rumble is on the next WSOF card or fights oversees soon so we can give him a bump up with a win. Also, if someone directly above him loses soon they will drop below him.

New M-1 Champs:
- Ramazan Emeev entered the rankings winning the middleweight title over Miranda.

- Marat Gafurov entered the top ten by winning the first ever M-1 featherweight title.

New KSW Champs:
- New KSW welterweight champ, Aslambek Saidov returned to the contenders list after winning the first ever KSW welterweight belt yesterday.

- Maciej Jewtuszko won the inaugural KSW lightweight title yesterday but did not make the contenders list due to the level of competitors included in this division. Kikuno would have been bumped out if Jewtuszko entered the rankings which would not be justified. Jewtuszko sits right on top of the watch list as a potential future addition to the rankings.

New BAMMA Champs:
- BAMMA crowned their first welterweight champion Tom Breese yesterday. Breese finished the fight and looked impressive. Breese sits atop the watch list but the title win was not enough to bump Lyman Good out of the rankings.

- BAMMA crowned their first lightweight champion as well yesterday as Steven Ray took the title. The title win wasn't enough to remove Kikuno out of the rankings.

- BAMMA also showcased a very impressive light heavyweight fighter to watch out for in Max Nunes who looked really good in his fight. Xavier Foupa-Pokam also looked solid surviving an early first round armbar which seriously hyper-extended his arm. Professor X showed a lot of heart to not tap out and take a clear decision win.
