Jon Fitch: Welcome to MMA, where the rankings are made up and the titles don't matter
As a professional MMA fighter, I’ve experienced firsthand the destructive and biased effects of fighting in MMA without a sanctioning body. Instead of a sanctioning body, the MMA has independent entities that set up matches between fighters and sell the tickets to those competitions. They can manipulate rankings, matches, and their own fighters to their own financial advantage. However, without a sanctioning body, the promotions lack even a rulebook to follow.

Sherdog.com’s WMMA Pound-for-Pound Top 10
It took Rose
Namajunas a little more than three minutes to alter the power
structure in women’s mixed martial arts.
Long hailed as a future champion, her results caught up to those
lofty expectations at UFC
217 on Nov. 4, as she upset pound-for-pound queen Joanna
Jedrzejczyk for the undisputed
Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s strawweight title at
Madison Square Garden in New York. Jedrzejczyk, who had never
before been defeated, succumbed to punches 3:03 into the first
round. The Polish superstar’s unexpected fall moves UFC women’s
bantamweight champion Amanda
Nunes into the pound-for-pound penthouse for the first time,
while Namajunas enters the rankings at No. 3 and Jedrzejczyk falls
all the way to fourth. Finally, Namajunas’ unexpected rise meant
the previously 10th-ranked Agnieszka Niedzwiedz slips off the list
-- at least for now.
Two of the top 10 fighters in our rankings are booked for duty in
the coming weeks, as Julia Budd

A.J. McKee: By The Numbers
Those behind the curtain at Bellator
MMA believe they have a future champion on their hands in
McKee , an undefeated prospect with world-class skills and the
pedigree to match.
“The Mercenary” will take his turn as a headliner for the first
time when he faces British
Association of Mixed Martial Arts and
Cage Warriors Fighting Championship veteran Brian Moore
in the Bellator
187 main event this Friday at 3Arena in Dublin. McKee operates
out of the Team Bodyshop camp in his native California, where he
trains under the watchful eye of his father -- former
Maximum Fighting Championship titleholder Antonio
McKee . He has been brought along cautiously in a cutthroat
featherweight division that includes Patricio
Freire , Pat Curran ,
Sanchez , Daniel
Straus and Daniel
Weichel , affording him the opportunity to grow into his
considerable talents. McKee last competed at Bellator 182 on Aug.
25, when he claimed a three-round unanimous decision from
Tugman . It marked just the second time in nine professional
outings that he had been forced to go the distance.

This Is The Perfect Time For The UFC To Launch 165 & 175
Georges St. Pierre Reveals He’s Contractually Obligated to Fight Robert Whittaker
If Georges St.
Pierre fights again in the UFC, it will be at 185 pounds
The newly-crowned middleweight king revealed during a media call on
Thursday that he is contractually obligated to defend his title
against Whittaker, the interim 185-pound titlist. That, at least in
theory, means “Rush” won’t be making a return to 170 pounds in the
Of course, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that St. Pierre
fights again, period.
“We’ll see what I want to do and where my head is. I have no
intention of holding onto the belt and freezing the division.
That’s not what I want to do,” St. Pierre said during a media call.
Whittaker is in my contract. If I want to fight again, it has
to be against Robert
Whittaker at 185 [pounds]. That’s in my contract. I cannot, for
example, go fight Tyron
Woodley or go fight another guy.”
St. Pierre defeated Michael
Bisping via third-round rear-naked choke to claim middleweight
gold in the UFC 217 headliner. Shortly before the fight-ending
submission, the Tristar Gym product took Bisping down and was
bloodied by numerous elbows thrown by the Englishman from the

Report: Till vs. ‘Wonderboy’ Not a Done Deal, According to Thompson’s Coach
While UFC President Dana White wants to book Darren Till
Thompson , the potential pairing is far from a done deal.
According to a report from
MMAFighting.com , Thompson’s father and coach, Ray Thompson,
says that “Wonderboy” could have two broken thumbs or ligament
damage from his fight against Jorge
Masvidal at UFC 217 this past Saturday. The welterweight
fighter is expected to see a doctor on Thursday to determine the
extent of his injuries.
“We’ve talked to no one [about fighting Till],” Ray Thompson told
MMAFighting. “Not sure how this is a ‘done deal.’ As for Till, he
needs to fight through the murderers row at welterweight like
‘Wonderboy’ did to get to the top.”
On Tuesday, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reported that
White was planning to move the UFC card scheduled for Feb. 24 in
Orlando to England to accommodate a Till vs. Thompson pairing.
Pugmire has since clarified that report, and it appears that White
is simply removing Till from a planned appearance on the UFC card
in Orlando in hopes of having him compete on an as yet to be
announced card in Liverpool.
