The month seemed to fly by in record time and this month’s version of the MMA Fighter Rankings will look nearly the same as February’s. No it’s not because I just copied and pasted last month’s so stop thinking that. The fights in February just didn’t produce many upsets and thus the rankings hardly changed.

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
Starting at the ungodly time of 3:20am Pt / 6:20am ET on Fight Pass, the TUF: China Finale preliminary card was honestly a very tough call to wake up early for. On the other hand the mornings main card, which started at 5am PT / 8am ET was more appealing and not so difficult to get out of bed when it was still dark outside.
This coming weekend will see three live major MMA events take place in less than a 24 hour span. Titan FC, Bellator will be holding events on Fridays night, while the UFC is in China and their card will stream over Fight Pass in the early morning on Saturday.
Former EliteXC and Strikeforce fighter Gina Carano doesn’t appear to be even thinking about an MMA comeback and let’s be honest, why should she? As Women’s MMA continues to grow, the former fighter credited with helping get Women’s MMA into the mainstream is growing as an action movie star.
Bellator will get their 10th season started in just under two weeks and with the new season comes five new tournaments. While Bellator has deviated a bit, the tournament format is still their bread and butter.
Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 36 is all about the night’s main card and more importantly the final two bouts. The two middleweight fights slotted in co-main and main event could determine the next fighter in line for a title shot or set up a potential number one contenders bout between the two winners.
This weekend the amateur MMA promotion World Combat Series returns to Convention Center in San Jose, California with a weekend long expo that will be capped off with the WCS 14 fight card. This years Expo is so much bigger than last time and the 14 bout MMA fight card, which takes place on Sunday, features two title fights.
As last year ended we promised that we would be adding Women’s rankings to the monthly updates of the MMA Fighter Rankings and we are very pleased to finally bring them to you. Along with the top five fighter rankings in the Men’s Flyweight – Heavyweight divisions you can now get the Women’s top five from the Atomweight – Featherweight divisions.
