The Your MMA team produce the longest standing and most trusted UK MMA rankings, published in print at Your MMA Magazine and online, with representatives from around Britain contributing to the output each month. Whilst all rankings remain somewhat subjective, the Your MMA panel aren't tied to any organisation or fighter and are key figures in the UK MMA scene, having been around the sport for many years.

 

Criteria:

  • Any fighter that hasn't been active in the last 365 days will be ineligible for consideration (with the caveat being a booked fight within a month of them being 'inactive').
  • Fighters eligible need to be either UK/Irish nationals or located in the UK full time (for two years or more).
  • Fighters moving around in weightclasses will be ranked in the lowest weightclass they have competed in within the last three fights.
  • Fighters competing in catchweight bouts or fighters moving down in weightclasses cannot be ranked at the lower weightclass until they have made the limit and fought there - e.g. a fighter taking on a fight at 73kg after competing at 77kg will not be ranked at lightweight until he has reached the proper weight category.
  • Rankings are based on quality of performance and level of opposition, as well as wins and finishes, with domestic promotional titles not figuring in how highly a fighter is ranked. It is more than a numbers game.

You can find the UK MMA Rankings from flyweight to heavyweight in the Fighters Section (just click on the UK tab). Check back regularly to see how big events shape the top tens.

March 2013 has been an epic month for the sport domestically. There have been events from Cage Warriors, OMMAC, BAMMA and Shock N Awe amongst others, as well as Bellator and UFC affect things for domestic fighters.
