Updated UFC Rankings: Darren Till Vaults Up To No. 2, Bisping Erased From Middleweight Top 10

The UFC rankings have been recently updated, and there were a couple of key changes in the welterweight, middleweight, and heavyweight divisions.

Fresh off his controversial five-round decision win over Stephen Thompson, and despite scale disaster, rising star Darren Till has climbed into the No. 2 position in the latest UFC welterweight rankings. Elsewhere in the charts, former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos is now the No.1 ranked welterweight. Former champion Michael Bisping was erased from the middleweight rankings after his retirement from sports with several other fighters get a boost in their rankings.

Check out how UFC rankings work, via UFC.com:

Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are inactive status in the UFC. A fighter can appear in more than one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.
