The last time we looked at the fight matrix rankings was back in February of this year. That’s too long ago so we’ll start doing these on a more regular basis (perhaps even monthly). This time around, we got a time from the guys over at Made to Win that some of our Houston area guys are making waves in the rankings, most notably Daniel Pineda. Based on the tip, we thought we’d take a look at how our Houston area guys are doing.
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:
|US Rank||World Rank||Name||Record|
Looking at this list compared to February’s, I think it’s safe to say that Houston MMA is on the rise…big time!
