    Everyone was claiming the UFC moved up Dustin just to make Conor look better...But guess what he is still at #6 wasn't a funny move like many claimed it was. If the UFC was tampering why wouldn't have Siver moved up in ranking instead he fell a spot..... IMO UFC rankings are all pretty justified.

    How did Poirier sneak into top 10 in the first place?

    Poirier has a lot of wins against sub top ten opponents. Only one of his total four losses has been a KO (from Conor McGregor). Names like Cub Swanson and Korean Zombie had to grind out a decision to win against him. He's better than journeyman but not quite ready for a title shot either. He has a decent following also, which helps matters considerably. I see no issue with him in the rankings.

    Siver was #6 when he fought Cub and he won his two fights after that.

    Poirier beated Erik Koch that was a long time top 10 in the division

    Siver since moving down to FW beated Diego Nunes that at the time, before UFC introduced the rankings, was a top 10 FW in pretty much all the rankings (Sherdog, MMAWeekly, ...)

    They moved Siver from 13 to 9 just for signing the fight.

    Realistically, he shouldn't be top 15.

    UFC's ranking system is more of an advertisement than an actual ranking system.

    He probably doesn't but I think there is a thread on here somewhere that does. I remember when Siver signed on to fight Conor someone made a thread about it and showed screen shots of Siver moving up like 3-4 positions just for signing to fight him.

    The UFC doesn't archive their rankings probably so they can't be criticized much.
