These ratings are historical ratings. They are calculated to represent the rankings as they would have appeared on the first day of the selected month.

These ratings are different to the All Time ratings or any other historical Whole-History ratings, since those are retoractively updated based on fights that occurred later. These ratings instead are an archive of how the ratings would have looked on that day, without any knowledge of future results.


Please be aware that these ratings are calculated pound-for-pound, not per weight class. Fighters who recently switched weight class have ratings based primarily on having competed in their previous class and are not adjusted to their new class.
