UK And Irish MMA Rankings

The Your MMA team produce the longest standing and most trusted UK and Irish MMA rankings, with representatives from around the UK and Ireland contributing to the output each month. Whilst all rankings remain somewhat subjective, the Your MMA panel are knowledgeable insiders that have contributed to the sport in various ways for many years.

Criteria:

  • Any fighter that hasn’t been active in the last 365 days will be ineligible for consideration (with the caveat being a fight booked around the time they become ‘inactive’).
  • Fighters eligible need to be either UK/Irish nationals or located here full time.
  • Fighters moving around in weightclasses will be ranked in the lowest weightclass they have competed in within the last three fights, unless a permanent move is specified.
  • Fighters competing in catchweight bouts or fighters moving down in weightclasses cannot be ranked at the lower weightclass until they have made the limit and fought there – e.g. a fighter taking on a fight at 73kg after competing at 77kg will not be ranked at lightweight until he has reached the proper weight category. You cannot be ranked in a division you haven’t fought in.
  • Rankings are based on quality of performance and level of opposition, as well as wins and finishes, with domestic promotional titles not figuring in how highly a fighter is ranked. It is more than a numbers game.

There were some big movements in the welterweight top 10 as UFC newcomers Darren Till and Tom Breese made a big impression, and every division has seen changes, with fresh faces entering the rankings and veterans climbing. A few retirements also caused some shifts.
