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 several meaningful bouts at UFC 171, the welterweight division saw a lot of movement. And what's most interesting is who the media believes should face Johny Hendricks next for the welterweight title:

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

view complete rankings...

After a fight of the night win at UFC 171, Johny Hendricks is now the welterweight champion, but exactly who the number one contender is now is still a question. The  media ranked Robbie Lawler in the number one spot, and his close decision loss to Hendricks could lead to a rematch. If you take Lawler out of the equation, the next highest ranked fighter is Rory MacDonald.

Easy win for Bigg Rigg. Woodley or Lombard has a better chance at beating him.

MMA Lives Here - lol Robbie moves up two places to become #1 contender after losing. Seems legit Phone Post 3.0
Doesn't make sense to you?

Makes sense to me, fight the champ to a razor close controversial decision means Robbie is the clear 1 contender. Phone Post 3.0

Brown has won 6 in a row. Hard to not rank him up there.

Interesting they catapulted Woodley up 7 spots but not ahead of the guy he just beat - Condit.

And Shields dropped 5 spots an he's still 3 behind Maia who he just beat. Plus he also beat Woodley fairly recently.

I'd like to see some of the top WW's fighting 5 rounders to determine the next contender.

Yes he has won 6 in a row, but outside of Pyle, against how many in the top 15 would you put down money on him to win? I see maybe 1 or 2. Phone Post 3.0

I love Carlos Condit, but how the fuck is he still #3? He is 1-3 in his last 4 fights.

I'm sorry, but Maia had one really good fight at WW. The guy he beat in that fight doesn't even fight in the UFC anymore. These rankings are ridiculous.

FinestScotch - Condit and Woodley should be ahead of Rory.

go crawl back under carlos condits nutsack, which is clearly where you crawled out of. Dude is 1-3 in his last 4, and has no business being in the top 5
Kinda have to agree. I like Carlos but he could have easily lost the fight against Woodley, injury or not. Phone Post 3.0

This is why MMA Media is the biggest joke in all sports. They have no clue how to so anything. Woodley just beat Condit... How the fuck is he below him?

How is Damien above Shields?

How is... Fuck it. Phone Post 3.0

Rory should be next for the title shot, based on who he has faced recently and beaten.
