UK MMA Rankings - March 2011; Flyweight Added

With MMA back in full flow in 2011, here are the March rankings featuring lightweight and welterweight top 20.


The Your MMA team are working to battle the constant problem of regular and unbiased UK MMA rankings (or lack thereof). 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 for years.

The system (over in the Fighter Section) will be updated on an event-by-event basis, keeping them relevant and up to date.

Another issue is the number of top fighters competing internationally, particularly in the busier lightweight and welterweight divisions. Although the 'top tens' live on the site don't support more entrants, Your MMA will publish a list up to twenty for 155lbs and 170lbs, and are working on a similar format for all weight classes in the future. These top twenties will be published monthly.


  • 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.
  • Fighters moving around in weightclasses will be ranked in the lowest weightclass they have competed in within the last two 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.

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