Non-UFC Rankings FAQ    
Non-UFC Rankings are comprised of all fighters competing outside the UFC. Fighters featured are from any regional promotion such as Bellator, One FC, KSW, Cage Warriors, Jungle Fights, Legacy Fighting Alliance, Ring of Combat, Shooto, Road FC, Pancrase, PFL, Titan FC, etc. These rankings are sometimes referred to as "Global Rankings" or "Free Agent Rankings."

So, how do we compile our rankings? What separates us from other web sites that formulate rankings?

Here is our rankings criteria:
- Most recent performance
- Performance against top competition
- Estimated ability against future competition
- Strength of competition
- Activity in the last 3 years
- Last 5 fights

There are many fighters sporting undefeated records from developing fight scenes, especially abroad. Something we take into consideration is the strength of competition they have faced. If a fighter has compiled a bunch of wins against competition that is lackluster they will likely have a difficult time moving up in the rankings until they face stiffer competition in order for us to accurately predict how they would perform against exceedingly tougher competition.

If a fighter has fought elite competition and fallen short, we factor in how they performed. If a fighter fairs well against a higher-ranked adversary, they could still move up in the rankings.

Actual fight footage is reviewed, regardless of promotion in order to formulate these rankings.

= Fighter moves up in the rankings after recent fight
= Fighter moves down in the rankings after recent fight

Reasons a fighter is ineligible for Non-UFC Rankings (* = Not Ranked)
= Inactivity over 15 months
= Changing weight classes. A fighter must debut in their new weight class in order to officially be ranked there. Upon their debut, they will be removed from their former weight class. If the fighter temporarily competed outside of their division, they will be ranked in their primary division of choice.
= Suspension. Should a fighter be suspended for performance enhancing substances or fighter conduct, they will be removed from the rankings.

    No Bobby Lashley? Dude is an animal.

  • brock needs to leave mma

    fedor, barnett, kharitonov, and a better conditioned carwin would all destroy Cock Chestboy Lesnar.. hopefully he will be out of mma soon

    couldnt even finish a guy he outweighed by 20+ lbs (herring) and that same guy fedor manhandled and crocop tko’d in the first round, only fans of lesnar are his wwf fanboys

      Lesnar’s days as a Top 10 heavyweight may be numbered. The toll of his unfortunate sickness on his overall strength and mindset, have likely changed him forever.

      As for Fedor, Barnett, or Kharitonov beating him, I think we have to give Lesnar the benefit of the doubt, just as we have the same fighters you mentioned. Kharitonov lost to Jeff Monson not too long ago. Monson used his wrestling to easily take Kharitonov down and keep him there. Lesnar vs. Kharitonov would be a great clash of styles, but I’d be interesting to see what the betting line would be for that fight.

      Lesnar will never win over MMA fans that have hated him since day 1, but at least he did step up and fight guys like Cain Velasquez and Shane Carwin, something that can’t be said for many heavyweight fighters living off their Pride glory days from 6-7 years ago.

        Well he did become heavyweighchampion and defended it twice to tie the record of heavyweight defenses so stop hating

    • Hm. How’d that work out?
