MNMMANEWS Rankings: May edition Print E-mail
Written by Ben Pherson

Welcome to the May 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. (Fighters who have openly announced their retirement also have been removed this month ... also there's about a 30-day gap for wiggle room on the 12 months, so guys like Rich Taylor and Dave Menne are on the bubble this month.)

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.
