UFC to Start Media-Based Rankings System

Dana White 2013Among the many interviews yesterday one interesting bit of information was revealed by UFC president Dana White. The UFC will be creating a media-based rankings system in association with Fight Metric.com.

The rankings system will incorporate 90 members of the MMA media community and will be updated following each fight. The system will allow the media to vote on where fighters stand following fights. The rankings will also include a pound-for-pound category.

While the rankings are expected to help make some fights easier to make, White insisted that the UFC will continue to make the fights “fans want to see.”

The first round of invitations for the voting period have been sent out and debut of the rankings is expected soon.
