This ranking is based on a score (in brackets) that represents overall career achievement.
What do you guys think?
How did you determine these numerical values? Without a proper explanation we can only label these as arbitrary.
Aside from that I agree with the list for the most part. I don't really agree with Randy Couture or BJ Penn being on there since they are hugely overrated fighters who have been gifted many title fights. Same goes with Frank Mir (Who I'm somewhat surprised isn't on this list.)
The person that really shocks me is Yuki Kondo.
There is formula and a detailed explanation on All Time Rankings formula.
You can also see a complete list (500+ fighters) on All Time Rankings List
There is much more there, but if you want I can copy some of that here.
It is just difficult to put a big table into a text like this (and you cannot sort).
Yuki Kondo was ranked #1 in LHW from 1997-1998.
From 1996 to 2001 he was always ranked top 10 LHW.
And that includes his time in UFC.
I don't disagree with your #1 pick and all of the fighters you picked are solid fighters.
I'm not sure if I agree with the order tho. It's hard to compare fighters from different generations... because the sport changes and athletesare continuously advancing.
Like Royce Gracie destroyed everybody regardless of size in his generation... but if you took Royce in his prime and made him fight today... he probably wouldn't have anywhere near as much success.
Maybe this graph might help.
Uriah was dominant for longer period than Dominick.
We are adding additional points each quarter (every 3 months) to this score.
So, since Dominick is ranked higher than Faber, he will get more points next quarter and he will pass Faber on All-Time list.
Very well then.
Cruz doesn't deserve any points until he fights again!
Details are on the website, but I can put few explanations here.
Score that is used here is called AllTimeTotal (ATT) and represents overall career achievement.
Following formula is used:
AllTimeTotal = CareerScore_End + CareerScore_Max
+ Dominance + Quarterly_Historical_Ranking_Count
+ BestRankings + MaxScore + ChampPoints
How is how those different components change in time?
1. PointsBestRankings and MaxScore are the highest achievements, and once you reach them you donít lose them.
2. CareerScore_Max also stays the same after maximum is reached, but if you start losing fights, your CareerScore_End is slipping.
3. Every quarter end (3 month period) fighters that are among best fighters get additional Dominance and Quarterly_Historical_Ranking_Count points. If somebody retires at the top, he will keep receiving additional points for few more quarters.
you should put all the details here, MMAForum is not a shameless advertising tool :)
