Best Mma Fights of the Year 2024 – Mma Ranking

Ranking of the best mma fights of the year 2024

Here you can find the ranking of all the best mma fights of the Year 2024 (from the top mixed martial arts promotions in the world: Ultimate Fighting Championship – UFC, Bellator MMA, ONE Championship, KSW, Fight Nights Global – FNG, Professional Fights League – PFL, Eagle FC, etc). We create two different mma rankings every year:

  • one in which you can find all the bouts of 2024 rated by the editorial board of AllTheBestFights.com (matches sorted by the number of stars we give, but also in chronological order)
  • the second one, created just at the end of the year, in which we list the top 10 mma Fights of the Year rated by our users (matches sorted by the highest average rating). In this ‘Mma Fans Ranking’, if two bouts have the same average rating, the one with the highest number of votes will have a higher position.

Clicking on the name of the fighters you can watch and rate the video of the fight (if it is available on the web) and read some info about it. However, you do not find a link for all the matches because we create a single post just for the 4 and 5 stars fights or for the most important ones.

Start voting to choose the best mma fight of the year 2024! Or comment this post if we have not considered a mma match that could be rated with 4 or 5 stars; in this way you will help us to create the best database of all the most spectacular fights!
