FIGHT! UK MMA Rankings Now Online

(The UK fans cheer for #1 welterweight Dan Hardy in his title bout against GSP)

With the absence of a standard since the demise of the monthly MMA Unltd publication, FIGHT! have taken to the helm and appointed a panel of knowledgeable UK MMA figures to draw up an unbiased and independent set of rankings.

The rankings will be updated month by month when the first UK edition hits the shelves, but following a huge few weeks for MMA in the UK, we felt the need to post the rankings as they stand before issue one explodes on to the scene. They are available in the FREE DIGITAL EDITION of FIGHT! UK (pg. 55).

All rankings are based on the perceived skill level, quality of opposition and quality of performance of the fighter as judged by the panel, and also the success and activity of the combatants.

For the regular updates, make sure you get your hands on FIGHT! UK and stay tuned to fightmagazine.com.
