Congrats to Jasper Moens for reaching RANK ONE in the Fight Night Combat 52 week rankings!

To claim the top spot he had to win Fight Nights at the EJC 2023 Lublin, BJC 2024, and Israel 2023, plus get second place at the European Championships 2023 and third at the NJF 2023.

Jasper replaces his biggest rival in the top spot! Bas Van de Kerkhof! Jasper and Bas have faced each other 10 times, including in six tournament final matches, with Bas leading their head-to-head with eight wins to two losses, although Jasper did win when it counted the most; in the EJC 2023 final.

Bas spent 80 weeks at number one in total, having first reached the top spot in May 2022.

Jasper joins just four* other competitors to hold the top spot in the rankings:

  • Jochen Pfeiffer in 2013 - 2022
  • Luke Burrage in 2013 - 2019
  • Julius Preu in 2019 only
  • Bas Van de Kerkhof in 2022 - 2024

* Four more jugglers held the number one spot during covid-effected years when the tournament schedule was greatly reduced and no major tournaments were counted in the rankings:

  • Krzysztof Kostera in 2021
  • Ilya Polyakov in 2021
  • Alexander Inozemtsev in 2021
  • Kilian Maidhof in 2022

Kilian and Krzysztof are currently third and sixth in the 52 week rankings, so the top spot is again within their reach, as long as they each manage to win one or two major tournament finals.
