It’s time once again to take a look at how our local Houston area fighters stack up with other fighters from around the United States (and the world) so that means it’s time to take a look at the December 2011Fight Matrix rankings!
If you are not familiar with FightMatrix, it’s a website dedicated to ranking fighters world wide using a computerized scoring system to rank fighters. In fact, from their own website they describe it as follows, “The rankings presented are computerized and provided by the FightMatrix ranking system, which utilizes a comprehensive MMA fight database to provide objective rankings. Please note, that these rankings ONLY contain fighters who have had at least one professional fight some time in the 450 days prior to the ranking date.”
What follows is the fighters that fight, have fought or are scheduled to fight here in Houston. Here is a breakdown of what we found:
RED = Drop in Rankings
GREEN = Rise in Rankings
BLUE = Scheduled to Fight in Houston soon
BOLD = New to Rankings
|US Rank||World Rank||Previous
|Light Heavyweight (205)|
Fallen Off: Derrick Krantz, Larry Crowe
Congratulations to Jeff Rexroad for making his debut in the national rankings! Rexroad debuts at #156 in the US. All in all, it’s agreat to see so many names associated with Houston MMA in the national rankings. 2011 was a great year for Houston MMA!
