June 2011 Pro MMA Now Consensus NC/SC professional and amateur rankings

 

#2 ranked North Carolina based Strikeforce middleweight Derek Brunson will debut next week

In an attempt to create an even better system for tracking the fighters in this region, we’ve implemented a policy that officially enlists the help of some of the folks that are most involved in the MMA scene in the Carolinas. Using an AP or Coaches Poll format, we will be getting official feedback from promoters, matchmakers and others familiar with the regional scene.

Instead of informal feedback, like we have used in the past, our new rankings structure will actually give a vote to these individuals so that fighters aren’t just being recognized for their hard work by this website, they’re also being recognized by their peers. Beginning with this round of rankings, we’ve implemented this new format and there have already been a few shakeups. Although there will never be a comprehensive list of rankings in any sport that everyone will agree with, this new process should offer a more “consensus” viewpoint. As time goes on, we hope to get as many folks as possible throughout North and South Carolina contributing to help formulate these rankings.

The MMA scene in this region continues to grow and such a system could have some value for fans, fighters and matchmakers alike. This list represents fighters from this area that actively compete close to home and those that are fighting outside of this region. There will inevitably be fighters that are currently between the amateur and professional ranks that are not yet represented within these rankings. There will also be fighters that are very talented but haven’t been active enough recently to reflect in the list.

We will highlight at least a few fighters in each weight class and our goal is to bring recognition to many of the fighters in our region (veterans and prospects) that are putting in lots of hard work. We realize that compiling a ranking like this is very subjective so we’ve attempted to gather a consensus of opinions in helping to develop these rankings. We’d like to hear feedback from others and would like the continued help of the MMA community across the region to help improve the rankings and make them as accurate as possible.

    Big ups to all of you for the support…we hope to expand to a top ten in all weight classes soon…we just need more active fighters!!

  • John Brantley

    Where is JJ Brantley in the 135 class? He does hold the title.

    How much is time AWAY from the cage a factor? I see some names up that are interesting beacuse they haven’t fought in months and maybe a year plus.

  • http://www.prommanow.com Kelvin Hunt

    Fighters get dropped from the rankings after one year of inactivity…unless military service is involved…(I usually include that in the post…I didn’t for some reason in this one)

    It would be a shorter amount of time…but the MMA shows in NC/SC have no real consistency to them at this point…so we stretched it out to a year…hopefully with more shows…fighters will fight more often..

    Expect new rankings to drop sometime in August.

    Just wondering when July will be out.
