MMA Rankings 02-13-2010

Original Publish Date: February 13, 2010

Let the Holy Wars begin. Below is the second edition of our “Entirely Indisputable World MMA Rankings”. Now, we may be a bit biased, but, we think that these are the most accurate MMA rankings on the web today. A lot of work went into our MMA rankings – they were painstakingly compiled over multiple pints of beer. The process was simple without any complicated analysis – our rankings are based solely upon who would win if two fighters matched up in the near future. It’s that simple. Some rankings take into account wins vs. losses, common opponents, strength of schedule, etc. Not ours! What you see is what you get – Emelianenko would beat Mir, Rashad would beat Rampage, Belfort would beat Diaz… you get the idea.
