Just a reminder to our readers that follow the fight scene regionally here in the Carolinas: We will be posting our updated professional and amateur rankings next Monday, May 31st. The MMA scene here in the Carolinas is still very green but is improving rapidly and the activity in terms of number of events held continues to be quite impressive. One more twist: We'll be considering fighter activity going forward. Barring some sort of noteworthy exception, fighters need to have competed at least once in the past 12 months to be considered for the rankings. An exception will be made for fighters that have had a delay due to service overseas. We will allow inactivity for up to 15 months in those select cases.
