Ranking Criteria:
Minimum Eligibility:

  • Fighters who haven’t fought or haven’t been scheduled to fight in a period of 5 events or more are ineligible to be ranked
  • Fighters who aren’t currently signed are ineligible to be ranked
  • A fighter will lose their ranking if they take more than one consecutive fight outside of their division
  • If a fighter retires from the sport, or expresses their intention to take an extended break they will still be ranked for one month, but removed after.

Main Ranking Criteria In order of Priority:

  1. Results in Karate Combat (overall record, dominance in fights, number of title defenses, etc)
  2. Accomplishments (quality of opposition and awards earned)
  3. Prior accomplishments

The rankings are done well, I don’t think there is anything to modify about them.


The rankings are very accurate
