October 2011 Pro Rankings

by Old School ~ October 4th, 2011

October 3, 2011 Pro Rankings

Here are the latest rankings from Dan, Rick, and myself with the help and advice of our many readers! We threw out a lot of changes in some weight classes as well as kept the status quo in other areas. In many areas of NorthEast MMA rankings, we all must defer to Dan and Rick, as these two gym rats have forgotten more than the rest of us know on the subject at hand. (more…)

June 2011 Preliminary Rankings

by Rick ~ May 17th, 2011

It’s that time again fight fans, new rankings are on the way! The last couple times we’ve done rankings, we’ve put out “preliminary rankings” so you guys can voice your opinion, and point out some things we may have missed. This time around, I decided to post the 2010 Final rankings, along with every listed fighter’s activity since the last rankings were posted. It’s really amazing to look at, as some weight classes had almost no activity, and others were littered with it.

As always, rankings aren’t always black and white. For example, a loss like the one Luiz Rodrigues had to Calvin Kattar may actually make his stock rise. He looked great in the loss, and was fighting a guy ranked well above him. Also, Tom Moreau’s loss may not drop him down the rankings as nobody below him had a win over a top ranked guy. I think you guys get the point by now. So let’s get this thing going, here is where we left off, and what’s happened since…how do you have ‘em ranked??

2010 Final Pro Rankings

by Bonnell ~ December 13th, 2010

Hey guys, Rick here. Bonnell posted this for me because I was busy and I wanted to throw in a few words, and wasn’t sure you’d notice if it was buried in the comments. As always, rankings are impossible. This time we ran into the unique issue of “what happens when a guy loses in a weight class above his?” and specifically saw that with Saul losing to Pete Jefferies at 155, with 145 being his “real” weight class, as well as Tom Moreau losing to Brett Oteri at a weight above 170, and Pedro Gonzales losing to Brandao at 145. Tough one to call, and as always, we look at these on a case by case basis…but it’s tough to drop a guy too many spots (if at all) when he takes a tough fight in a higher weight class.

We also ran into what I’ll refer to as “the Jason Bennett issue.” Jason is great, and we all know that…and we always talk about guys who take tough fights, but Jason has fought literally the 4 toughest guys he could have fought at the time. Henrique Bicalho was his first loss, and he was ranked 1 or 2 at the time. Ken Stone and Paul Gorman were losses 2 and 3, and those two guys have been on top of their divisions for as long as I can remember, and Tateki Matsuda was loss #4. So next time one of you guys wants to talk about your friend/training partner/yourself and say “so and so should be higher because he only takes tough fights” I want you re-read this paragraph, because with the exception of Dennis Olson, nobody takes tough fights like Bennett. Shit, the top 2-3 guys don’t even take tough fights like that. So how should he be ranked? Tough call, but I think we made the right choice.

We also added an honorable mention to 155 because it’s absolutely stacked. I said years ago that I wouldn’t rank a top 10 at 135 until we had 10 guys deserving of a ranking, and the fact that there were 10 guys fighting at that weight doesn’t make it a “worthy” top 10…meaning I can’t rank a guy who is 2-4 against average opposition just because he fights at that weight while leaving 5-1 guys off another category because the division is stacked. We all know what a “ranked” fighter looks like…and our current group at 155 is amazing. There are easily 15 guys that are worthy of headlining shows that have fought their balls off and deserve to be ranked…so we did it.

I’m sure there is still a guy or two we missed because rankings are tough, especially when we’ve debated it back and forth 250 times. We can adjust if we need to, but we put some time into these and I think they are solid. Let me know what you guys think.
