Hi everyone,

I have recently researched the actual popularity of MMA fighters. I have compiled the list of top 100 fighters according to their facebook groups/fanpages. And to make an overview I put the results in the table.

Who do you think is currently the most popular MMA fighter ? Now you can find out:

WOW it shows that there is a huge gap between real fans and the people who watch TUF and think they are bad ass

You know those guys in the bar while watching the PPV saying "I would fuck that Lyoto guy up...he dont know how to fight" or the fat guy in the corner "I am the next coming of Tank Abbott". All these guys must have Facebook!!

Facebook became popular in Canada first while Myspace was the choice of Americans, thus the Canadian fighters having a larger fan base on Facebook.

Haha yeah but come on, everyone is on Facebook. And most are people who watch UFC and aren't educated. They probably saw the youtube videos and thought Kimbo was the greatest fighter ever lol

The Fedor Emelianenko is fake, the real Fedor does not use Facebook.

I refuse to believe that Tank Abbott knows what a computer is; let alone how to make a Facebook account.

LOL....Lee Murray has been in jail since before Facebook existed, yet he is number 79 on the list.

And Helio Gracie is number 24 even though he is dead.

I love internet polls

dude it's a fan page, and it's great because it keeps you up with the things he does outside the American media coverage.

and Helio Gracie is also a fan page lol...and he's not even an MMA fighter lmao

What if there's multiple fan pages for the same fighter? have you added their fans together?

EDIT - also 2 of the more popular uk fighters:

Tom 'Kong' Watson - 2056 fans
Alex Reid - 28,656

Even though they both suck a bit, they're more popular than some of the dudes on your list - especially Reid

well, i was just not able to search for all FB pages of a fighter, mainly because there are just too many of them, sometimes with 2 fans etc... and there were also some hate pages, which are in fact against the popularity of a fighter...

as for the UK fighters, tom is not listed in (US) wikipedia and i had to miss alex somehow - i will add him at the next update...but thanks
