    PLEASE REMEMBER TO READ THIS:
    http://www.thecagedoor.net/rankingsdetails.html

    BEFORE ASKING ABOUT WHY SOMEBODY ISN’T RANKED! That link describes the eligibility requirements and more (including tie breaks and scoring).

  2. drew ratichek

    Good work again cagedoor. I think gerzan not being on here is an oversight by the panel. I like how this is developing. We have a lot of great fighters in houston.

  3. charlie sheen

    were is rey? or is he is going to ufc thats why you didnt rank him? ohh right its beacuse hes terrible. go back to la porte and hang out with your loser friends nothing good ever comes out of laporte just a bunch of wanna be’s and never will be’s….

  4. htownfan

    How is JDF ranked anywhere in the top 10? He dodged Machado, a guy that is 30 pounds lighter, and he still gets ranked? What has he done? Just wondering….

  5. rasta420

    htownfan. ..the reason JDF is ranked http://www.thecagedoor.net/rankingsdetails.html

    • Drew Ratichek

      SWEEEEET! this needs to become the official answer to ANY question about rankings.

  6. Luda

    I guess with the voting format anythng can really happen….but wouldn’t it make sense that if Daniel is ranked #1 pound for pound in front of Adam… he would be ranked #1 as a lightweight as well. Anyways, thanks for the ratings…I really enjoy them and congrats to the fighters that made the list.

  7. Luda

    ^ahhh…just realized he was on the bantemweight and featherweight list..I see how that happened. Very impressive daniel!

  8. Peanut

    Daniel should be ranked #1 in both and possibly in the 135 division.

  9. Drew Ratichek

    Im proud of my ranking on here. Most of you don’t have enough computer screen to see it but im number 36 at LHW….if you didn’t see it you need a longer screen. period.

  10. Jaime_4oz

    Drew I just so happen to have a 3ft vertical monitor and I can see it just fine! 🙂 Also, congrats to my 4oz brothers, hardest workers that I know!

    • drew ratichek

      My brothers are dominating the charts again!

  11. scott davis

    Lex pappas is from gold team fighters!
    Charles oliveira? Haha

  12. colin wright

    so proud to remain number 1! its a huge honor and it’s one of many reasons why I train as much and as hard as I do. Great to see some of my friends and teammates moving up in the rankings as well!

  13. texasyank

    read the criteria. macaco fought in strikeforce back in august. he lost, but i’d say the level of competition should be considered. does that count? or does it have to be a local promotion? apologies if i missed something. thanks for the feedback.

    • admin

      We don’t publish it, but we exclude National promotions since they are a one and done.

  14. Mark W.

    Josh Foster is part of Team JG Texas MMA & he fights at 185 and has for some time now. He is listed @ #4 as a Light Heavy Weight and should b in the top 2 or 3 in the middle weight division. He has wins over the #9 & #10 middle weights @ went the distance with Craig. He deserves top 3 ranking. I think if he beats Bush tomorrow night he should get the next title shot! It will b a tough fight beause Bush is a big strong guy, but Foster should come out on top!

  15. machado

    Again

  16. with is the next up, date on the 135 ranking robo out, angel hurt, garcia loss,peterson win,williams win, garza loss , i like this whos going to be the champ.

    • admin

      Q3 rankings should be out on the last day of the month.
