Welcome to the February 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.

That said, we have some major changes this month as several highly ranked fighters drop out of the rankings because they have not been active in the past 12 months. Once they're active again, they will return to the polls.

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.
