*first off requesting help for someone good at data entry type things, coding… this took be way too long to make @ErikssonLau on twitter, WMMAnalyze.com/ask or Facebook.com/WMMAnalyze if interested in helping out

I like how the “Unified” and “MMACorner” uses multiple rankings into one compilation ranking, but I really don’t like that they don’t show how the members ranked the fighters to get to the compiled ranking. 

So, I found the only people that make top 15 rankings, that are competent (there will be no Klima Pessanhas… sort of inside/hardcore MMA fan joke. Look him up on the official UFC rankings) and aren’t just a collective of unknowns. 

Allow me to introduce the WMMA Aggregate Rankings

It’s simple. 1st place vote gets 15 points, 2nd place vote, 14 points, 3rd place vote 13 points… and so on. 

It’s literally the Bloodyelbow meta-rankings except with WMMA and only 15 fighters. 

First top 25!!! Strawweight rankings complete - In with the new, Torres, Calderwood

Calderwood stares down with Kankaanpaa

1. Jessica Aguilar 

2. Claudia Gadelha

3. Carla Esparza

4. Ayaka Hamasaki

5. Joanne Calderwood 

6. Tecia Torres 

7. Katja Kankaanpaa 

8. Felice Herrig

9. Mizuki Inoue

10. Alida Gray - So, this 36 year old chick  made her MMA debut against Vidonic beating her by armbar. I can’t not rank her now, since the victory was so recent. This is like when Rashad Evans. did nothing agaisnt Lil Nog, losing. 

11. Mei Yamaguchi - She definitely won rounds 1 and 3 against Vidonic, so I’m still ranking her ahead of Vidonic

12. Patricia Vidonic - Considering Vidonic’s losses are 2x Aguilar, 2x Herrig and once from the unknown Gray, she just needed to face non top 5 opposition

13. Emi Fujino

14. Rose Namajunas

15. Bec Hyatt

16. Stephanie Eggink 

17. Heather Clark 

18. Kailin Curran 

19. Herica Tiburcio 

Kay. This clusterfuck of Brazillians is all because Camila Lima had to go and get KTFO in 30 seconds by Mylla Torres, who isn’t that good, so she has lost to fighters, and based on my “quality of opposition” I have to rank all these Brazillians because Camila Lima beat Herica Tiburcio, then Tiburcio beat Novaes. Hopefully these Brazillians can fight each other or move to Invicta or PXC. 

20. Juliana Lima

21. Kinberly Tanaka Novaes

22. Livia Souza  

23. Aline Sattelmayer  

24. Mylla Torres 

25. Camila Lima
