MNMMANEWS UNIFIED RANKINGS: September 2014 edition Print E-mail

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

The August slate was pretty much empty for most Minnesota fighters, so there was very little movement in the rankings. Any movement you see is because several voters did not get their rankings in. That issue is being taken care of, with several voters being replaced for next month.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: WE NEED SOME NEW, DEDICATED VOTERS!!! Please send me an email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you're interested in voting each month.
