Rankings Update: Bisping still at 8th

Monday, August 25, 2014

After each event, 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 the UFC held two events, first UFC Fight Night 47 in Macao, China and UFC Fight Night 48 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

Champion : Chris Weidman
1    Anderson Silva 
2    Lyoto Machida 
3    Vitor Belfort 
4    Jacare Souza 
5    Luke Rockhold 
6    Tim Kennedy 
7    Gegard Mousasi 
8    Michael Bisping 
9    CB Dollaway 
10    Yoel Romero +1
11    Costas Philippou -1
12    Thales Leites +3
13    Mark Munoz 
14    Tim Boetsch 
15    Francis Carmont -3

Despite earning an impressive win over Cung Le, Bisping's ranking did not change. Cung Le was not ranked so the non-movement makes sense. The big mover in the middleweight division was Thales Leites who moved up three spots with a knockout of Francis Carmont. Carmont dropped three spots.
