Despite winning his first fight in the light heayvweight division against a UFC new comer, Daniel Cormier debuted in the rankings in sixth position.

After each live 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. 

With Cormier's introduction to the division rankings, eight other fights had to move down.

Champion : Jon Jones
1     Alexander Gustafsson 
2     Glover Teixeira 
3     Rashad Evans 
4     Phil Davis 
5     Antonio Rogerio Nogueira 
6     Daniel Cormier *NR
7     Mauricio Rua  -1
8     Dan Henderson -1
9     Chael Sonnen -1
10     Ryan Bader -1
11     Jimi Manuwa -1
12     Vitor Belfort 
13     Gegard Mousasi -2
14     James Te-Huna -1
15     Rafael Cavalcante -1

Beat an unranked fighter no has ever heard of and jump to 6th? Seems legit... / sarcasm

What's the point of having Vitor still ranked at LHW? Is he just grandfathered in forever now?

edit: Forgot he fought hendo at lhw.

Not at all laughable. Nog's last fight wasn't even THAT long ago, and he beat Rashad. Phone Post 3.0

Henderson ahead of Vitor. One of them KTFO the other only three months ago....

And good job burying Gus there, Dana. He fights a close 5-rounder with the champ, is the number one contender, and his next fight is........ ON FIGHTPASS! Where no one will ever see him!

Smooov.

Doesn't matter where he's ranked, that belt is his whenever the UFC decides to give him the fight. Not at all a DC fan, but he's made me a believer with his wins over some very good heavyweights (his last fight doesn't count). Cant wait to see him fight Jones.

Henderson and Chael both beat Shogun...

I'd put DC right after Rashad. If they had fought and he won I'd say he needs a title shot. Literally they can't fucking Hendrix DC and make him wipe out everyone before giving him his shot. We was the top HW before dropping down. Phone Post 3.0

Apparently the key to staying well ranked is to just not fight.
