UFC rankings: Chris Curtis makes official debut following Uriah Hall's retirement

'The Action Man' rewarded for his recent late-notice roll of the dice and cracks into the top 15 at middleweight.

While his latest fight didn't go the way he might have hoped, Chris Curtis can still take some pride in being a ranked athlete in the UFC.

With Uriah Hall's announcement that he is walking away from the sport and subsequent removal from the promotion's official middleweight rankings, Curtis (29-9 MMA, 3-1 UFC) now debuts on the list at No. 15.

"The Action Man" last saw action in July, stepping up on short notice to take on Jack Hermansson (23-7 MMA, 10-5 UFC), who sits at No. 8 in the rankings, in London. Curtis came up short on the cards in a rather frustrating affair. Prior to the setback, Curtis had boasted an eight-fight winning streak.
