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

Rankings are compiled using votes from 10 panelists from around the state and throughout the Minnesota MMA scene. Fighters must be active within the last 12 months (guys like Logan Clark, Cody Lynch, etc., will fall out after this month) to qualify. They also must be Minnesota natives or residents or have fought the majority of their fights within the state.

Due to the shutdown, rankings were delayed. From here on out, rankings will come out on the first of every month.

Without further delay, here are the August rankings:
