    Since Khabib Nurmagomedov and George St. Pierre are both retired
    has there been talk about a super fight between these 2 or is it just talk ?
    If it was a possibility who would determine what weight they would fight at ?
    Would it be based somewhat on how much weight Khabib would have to gain or
    Pierre having to go down in weight ? Or would there be a catch weight ?

      That makes no sense, that fight would never be booked. Khabib would return under no circumstances even for the idea of a gsp fight. If it did happen it would be at 170 as a legacy match, Khabib cut a substantial amount of weight to get to 155 and he truly did belong at 170 so it would make sense for the fight at 170 or 185. The fight wouldn’t happen and if it did it would have little title implications. Besides Gsp and Nick Diaz II is in the works for UFC 300.

    Loved this site since it began, looks like its no longer being updated. I would be interested in helping update the site or even taking it over, would be a shame to see this site go down.

    Why did you rank Glieson above Macdonald despite having a massively controversial victory where everyone thought Rory won, but refused to put Iuri Lapicus over Eddie Alvarez even though he technically won by no contest? Why not put Trevin Jones over Timur Valiev when he obviously won that fight and was only overturned for a substance that is now legal in USADA? Why did you put Mason Jones above Alan Patrick even though that also ended in a NC? Why is Jessin Ayari still on the Lightweight rankings?

      Great call out and the actual fight and its results are a part of the ranking. Gleison actually got the decision win despite how controversial it was.

      As for Iuri vs. Eddie, Eddie was winning the fight until the NC. Trevin won the fight vs. Timur, but Timur has now picked up a win over Barcelos. Mason did move up in the rankings despite the NC against Patrick.

      An actual decision win carries more weight than a no contest. Iuri did not “win” the fight vs. Eddie. See below for definition:

      A no-contest decision in MMA can seem fairly confusing if you don’t know how things can play out. It basically means when neither of the fighters can be declared the winner.

      They are listed under the “UFC Rankings” and “MMA Rankings” Tabs on the top of the page. I also have the Top 10 Flyweight free agents and prospects listed under their respective tabs at the top of the page.

    Are you going to add the Women’s 135 to the UFC rankings or is that too much of a stretch?

      It looks like I am going to have to since the division is being added to the UFC. All I have heard thus far is Rousey, Carmouche, and Tate. It’s sort of odd to do division rankings for 3 fighters at this point. I think the WMMA definitely belongs on a national stage for championship-level fights, but I have mixed feelings after the UFC has struggled to get the Flyweight, Bantamweight, and Featherweight divisions on track. The depth in the Flyweight and Bantamweight divisions are severely lacking, but I am doubtful the UFC is going to go out and sign new and deserving talent with the addition of WMMA and various Strikeforce fighters.
