Welcome to the latest edition of the Minnesota MMA News Unified Rankings.

Rankings are compiled using votes from 10 panelists (when they get their votes in) from around the state and throughout the Minnesota MMA scene. Fighters must be active within the last 12 months to qualify. They also must be Minnesota natives, residents or have fought the majority of their fights within the state.

VOTERS NEEDED: Once again, many of our formerly regular voters are no longer getting their votes in. If you're at all interested and willing to do it every month, contact us ASAP via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ... rankings get severely skewed when voters don't submit. We need to avoid this, only four of 10 voters submitted this month!!
