2019 FloGrappling No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu Rankings

Pound-For-Pound No-Gi Rankings, August 2019

A lot of movement in the pound-for-pound rankings following Cyborg's big win at the IBJJF Heavyweight No-Gi Grand Prix and Matheus Diniz's win over Josh Hinger. We've expanded the ranking from 10 to 15 and will continue to deepen this ranking in coming months.  

How we determine the rankings

We use a number of criteria when judging how the rankings should look. 

1. Activity: If you've not been active within the last calendar year, you don't get on the list. That's why ADCC champions– who were crowned in September 2017– don't appear. 

2. Accomplishments: Titles matter, and some more than most. For example, a World No-Gi Championship gold medal generally places an athlete at the top of the ranking. We consider all major no-gi tournaments, events such as ADCC Trials, and superfight promotions such as Fight 2 Win. 

3. Head-to-Head Results: a grappler may have won a gold medal in an important event, but he can drop in the rankings if he has lost since then. This means superfight results can elevate a grappler over a tournament winner if the result and method of victory was significant.
