I like how everyone claimed his injury was completely fake and the UFC paid him off. A year later he's still out with his concussive symptoms lol

Those ranking are "rough" estimates anyways, I wouldn't be to worried if I was Grant.

When Grant fights again and if he wins he'll go back to around where he was. Calm down people

Yeah for real it must be real bad.  I feel for the guy, he was on a tear and then has this happen.  I really hope he can come back but if not i hope he can just be healthy and recover.

For such a big multi million dollar company you think they would be able to come up with some common sense way to do rankings.

But Cruz was the champ thats probably why he was kept on. Now that he has vacated his belt if he goes a year without fighting he will likely be taken off the list.   Lil Nog has been out over a year and isnt ranked.    So the Cruz situation was def because of him being the champ.
