Hello everyone! I truly appreciate your support for RankingMMA and my efforts towards providing in-depth MMA World Rankings. I started this site way back in 2006 (originally named MMAsurvival until 2009) as a huge MMA fan with absolutely no web design or blogging experience.

The first few years of the site I produced daily content from fight announcements, rankings, and fight card previews and analysis. That effort eventually slowed down as my career took off. Since then, I focused on some passion projects such as writing my first book, The World’s Top MMA Fighters in 2012 and the MMA Prospects Report in 2013. With a full-time job and family, my available time continued to shrink over the last 5 years. I just finished my MBA, so I am hoping that I will have some newfound time to start focusing my efforts on some entrepreneurial pursuits such as this site.

It has been an amazing experience to see the sport globalize. Over 30% of my site traffic now comes from outside North America. You must know that your support is what has kept me updating the site all these years.

The days of hoping I would be a talent scout or matchmaker for the UFC have long passed. I still hold out hope that Las Vegas will need me as an oddsmaker one day! Until that time, I will continue to provide the best MMA World Rankings for the last 13 years and counting.

For partnerships, affiliate marketing, questions, or feedback, please feel free to email me at or leave a comment on the site.

      Hi, unfortunately all our fighter pages are currently down due to the plugin creator no longer supporting the custom post types. I am attempting to fix the glitch. Thank you for your patience.

    Amazing website dude! I can’t believe it has taken me so long to discover it, if you are doing this on your own I understand that it takes some time to keep up with but I think with some more exposure this could become really popular as the mma fan base grows, anyways awesome job dude!

    Hi, in the Biography of Volkan Ozdemir is a serious mistake. You write that his father is turkish but that is wrong! His father is Kurdish from Turkey. He is not turkish, he just came from that part. Please correct it. In Wikipedia it is also written that he is kurdish with the correct link where he is saying it clearly. For you it might be no difference but for the kurdish people it makes a huge difference. Kurds are not Turks! Please correct it. Thank you

    I love your website. I noticed you only rank the top 25 or 15 fighters in each division, depending on the depth of the division. Why did you stop ranking all the fighters? You were doing such a great job.

      Hi Migue, thank you for your feedback. It really came down to the difficulty with one of the web site plugins I use that forces me to have to manually re-number every division when there is a change. For a division like Flyweight or Heavyweight that is not a bit deal because there is only 20-40 fighters, but for a division like Lightweight, there are sometimes over 100 fighters ranked. That means I have to manually retype the ranking for each fighter when there has been an update. I can go back to ranking them all if that is everyone prefers. I would just hope to receive a few more comments like your own telling me they would rather have it that way. Thank you again for commenting!!

      In the lightweights ranking there is no name of Tofiq Musayev who is the recent Rizin Championship Lightweight winner. Please, correct it.

    From what I can make of it, the Facebook site sucks if all you’re looking for is rankings.

    What happened to Rose Namajunas at Straw weight? The UFC has her ranked #3 (rather absurd) but you don’t seem to have ranked at all, which is equally absurd.
