The Official Swedish MMA Rankings is the only ranking system focusing on Swedish MMA, with rankings for each pro division – as well as unique amateur’s pound-for-pound rankings.

Let’s take a look at the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions.

The heavier division features some of Sweden’s absolute best international fighters.

In the light heavyweight rankings we find fighters like Bellator’s Karl Albrektsson, who’s also the Superior Challenge 205 lbs champion, as well as UFC fighters like Alexander Gustafsson and Anton Turkalj.

Gothenburg’s Turkalj will step into the octagon for the fourth time later this year, while Gustafsson is back in the gym to get back in fighting shape.

Light heavyweight (205 lbs – 93 kg)

  1. Karl Albrektsson
  2. Alexander Gustafsson
  3. Anton Turkalj
  4. Andreas Knutsson
  5. Mustafa Atrakchi

Heavyweight (265 lbs – 120,2 kg)

Besides UFC’s Ilir Latifi, the heavyweight rankings feature more local talent than international names. At No. 2, however, we find the entertaining Nermin Hajdarpasic who fought in European promotion OKTAGON MMA.

Holding the No. 3 spot is Irman Smajic who returned to action on December 30 to secure a big win at AFN 4. After the win he hinted of a retirement, but hopefully we will see Smajic back in the cage soon.
