Here we go ... welcome to the January edition of the Minnesota MMA News unified rankings. Please remember the rules: Fighters must be active within the past 12 months and they must either be from Minnesota or compete in Minnesota on a regular basis to be considered for the rankings.

We have a few new voters this month. Thanks to the entire panel!

We are still looking for a couple of new, reliable voters. If you're a rabid Minnesota MMA fan or a fighter who's interested in participating (and willing to get your votes in EVERY MONTH), please contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and tell me why you'd be a good panelist.
