Tapology MMA Rankings

Annual Rankings

Annual Rankings are the place to celebrate the best that MMA had to offer in each calendar year. While regional action is eligible, the rankings will typically be filled with activity from the UFC and other top MMA organizations.

Tapology Annual Rankings are community-generated. Any Tapology user may create and submit their own ranking list. Based on the user's seniority, frequency of updates and comprehensiveness of rankings, the list will be weighted and eligible for inclusion into the consensus rankings.
