Please note that due to technical difficulties the MMA Freak Rankings were not updated in January.

The MMA Freak rankings are voted on by members of the Freak staff. Note that fighters who are serving drug related suspensions, have been inactive for over twelve months or have recently retired are currently ineligible. Also note that fighters are only eligible for one weight class unless they are champions in multiple divisions in which case exceptions are made:
