    I was checking out the UFC 217 fight card, and noticed that GSP has no ranking number beside his picture!?
    I also checked the official UFC rankings page under middleweights, and he is not listed in the top 10 there either?

    Is GSP not ranked by the UFC because of his long absence, or is he just not a top 10 fighter anymore?

    GSP has not fought since Hendricks retired him 4 years ago.

    Has nothing to do with the absence. You simply don't get to be ranked when you can't even defend yourself from getting probed by a tiny fucking alien. Ever seen an alien, bro? They're smaller than Mighty Mouse, crazy as it sounds.

    He's not ranked at middleweight because he's never fought in that division.

    He's not ranked because he's in a league of his own; GOAT rank, next to Fedor.

    Like extremely extrmely inactive @ MW. As in never fought there, that's why he's not ranked @ MW!!

    What's Conor ranked @ in the HW class?? He's not, has t fought there.

    Jesus it's not that hard to understand.

    Yeah, they used to be huge, but they cut down to gain a speed and cardio advantage. Plus their IQ's are extremely high. They have ways to get you down, sink their claws in you, and probe you into submission.

    Even if he wasn't retired, he'd still be unranked as a MW

    If he wins and wins well and UFC desides they can make $$$ of him they will rank him and promote him.
