Code of Conduct
When editing FightWiki, please consider the audience who will be reading your work. Keep your work as informative as possible, while keeping personal bias out of the equation.
If a fighter is controversial, such as Lyoto Machida, where some may feel strongly, on way or another about him, instead of writing a scathing paragraph about his "evasive" fighting style, explain why there is a divide within the MMA community, giving both sides of the arguement.
Please respect the site, as well as the Fighters featured within our archives. Any inappropriate behavior on FightWiki will cause moderators on MMAlinker to take action against you.
Thank you and let's get started - The FightWiki Team
On FightWiki, we have a very simple, yet strict outline for how a Fighters profile should look. We created this format in order to keep our archives as uniform as possible.
For an example, please look at B.J. Penn's profile.
Description of Formatting
At the top of the page is the fighters most basic information in a table, such as his name, nickname, where they train, their nationality, etc. This information is found to the right of the fighters picture, which preferably is of the fighter at a weigh-in. We know this is not always possible, but please try.
As a side-note, due to the multicultural community on MMAlinker, in order to not confuse anyone, please write the fighters birth date with the month spelled out, the day, then the year. Please write it as May 3, 1988, no 5/03/1988 (U.S.) or 3/05/1988 (U.K.), as it can get confusing.
Below this table is a very basic introduction of the fighter stating their name (in bold), their nationality and the weight class which they compete in. Optional information for this section is Championships they have held or hold, major promotions that they have fought in, or well-known opponents which they have competed against.
The next section is the fighters Professional Record, including notes for if the fighter ever tested positive for drugs post-fight, titles they are fighting for, or debut's in major promotions. At the top of the table should be their most recent fight.
Lastly, there is the written section. This is where the author can focus on the biography, their mixed martial arts career, and as the last section, their personal life. If there is no data on certain topics, just leave it out of the profile at this point. If something is learned later on, it can be added later.
