Rankings Update 5.12.14: Brown up one spot


Each week the UFC polls various members of the media to update its rankings in each weight division as well as the pound for pound rankings. 

This past weekend's UFC Fight Night 45 only featured a few meaningful bouts in the rankings and thus there was not much movement.

Despite an impressive performance at UFC Fight Night 35, welterweight Matt Brown only moved up one spot in the divisional rankings, as Erick Silva was only ranked fourteenth.

Champion : Johny Hendricks
1     Robbie Lawler 
2     Rory MacDonald 
3     Tyron Woodley 
4     Carlos Condit 
5     Jake Ellenberger 
6     Matt Brown +1
7     Hector Lombard -1
8     Demian Maia 
9     Dong Hyun Kim 
10     Tarec Saffiedine 
11     Kelvin Gastelum 
12     Mike Pyle 
13     Gunnar Nelson 
14     Ryan LaFlare +1
15     Erick Silva -1

2 of his 4 losses to guys cut by UFC. as if fitch was cut by the ufc because he sucked and wasn't ufc level and it had nothing to do with the ufc not wanting to pay him, and as if erick silva beating the fuck out of carlo prater with legal shots and getting a bullshit dq from it counts as a real, move him backwards in the rankings loss.  you use illogical hyperbole to overdramatize your points like a woman.

UFC rankings are meaningless and a waste of time.

Why in the hell is everyone still so high on Erick Silva??? He's .500 in the UFC with his only wins coming against Luis Ramos, Charlie Brenneman, Jason High, and Sato. 2 of his 4 losses are to guys that have since been cut by the UFC.... Despite this, he's still top 15 in his weight class and only drops one spot in the rankings after his loss to Brown??? What am I missing here?

First time I'm interested in the WW title picture in years.I like Lawler, but he shouldn't be #1. He lost to Larkin not even 2 years ago and his wins are over an irrelevant Koscheck, WSOF-bound Voelker and a split dec over Rory. His fight with Ellenberger will tell us a lot and I suspect he'll lose.And I hope Rory vs Woodley is a double KO, I can't stand either guy. Happy with Hendricks at the top, but would love to see him fight Brown (and probably KO him...)
