Tapology Tackles New York MMA Fighter Rankings


Fighter rankings are a tough nut to crack, as no matter what you do, someone is going to get offended because they're not ranked high enough (or at all) and they now want to punch you in the face the next time they see you. Which is why I respect the effort the folks at Tapology put into their rankings of the New York amateur (and pro, such as it is) MMA scene. Granted, Tapology's methods seem to be purely statistical in nature (i.e., based solely on win/loss record and not on subjective things like strength of competition and overall bout performance), but it took work to amass the data and crunch it, so props to them.

Check the rankings out here.
