Welcome to the latest edition of the Minnesota MMA News Unified Rankings.
We finally have some new blood voting this month, with three new voters added to the panel. We've eliminated the dead weight (people who fail to get their votes in), and you will see some big-time movement in the rankings due to the changes.
The new voters come on board during an interesting time, considering some big names dropped to the inactive list this month.
Rankings are compiled using votes from 10 panelists (when they get their votes in) from around the state and throughout the Minnesota MMA scene. Fighters must be active within the last 12 months to qualify. They also must be Minnesota natives, residents or have fought the majority of their fights within the state.
Without further delay, here are the May 2013 rankings:
1. Kaitlin Young (7-7-1)
2. Rose Namajunas (2-0)
