    It looks like once they cut you, everyone else magically moves up a spot. Rockhold now #6.

    Click on each media vote and you can see that the UFC censored Okami's name out on every voting ballot.

    It's only fair that Rockhold goes from #7 to #6. I mean, he just got ktfo in his last fight...

    Umm, they're UFC rankings....Yushin Okami is not with the UFC anymore, therefore Yushin Okami is not on the UFC rankings.

    Same reason why Pat Curran isn't in the UFC FW rankings, or Michael Chandler on the UFC LW rankings.

    or am I missing something here?

    Then they should have removed Okami from the voting ballots. Instead, they let the media vote Okami into the top 10 and then censored them all.

    Yet they will claim whoever is ranked 8 on their rankings is the 8th best fighter in the world...

    It's funny because the MW ranking lost an entire spot and no one can fill it until next week where they vote again. So it's Weidman and then #1-9 instead of #10.

    Yea, they should have told the media he was shitcanned and had them sit on it until they actually decided to cut him.

    And? OMG, an organization is over-hyping it's fighters... very slightly. They also don't have Curran, Alvarez, Chandler, or Askren ranked.

    No, they should have let Okami sit at #6 for the week and removed him on the next voting ballot.

    Censoring all 70 media votes after-the-fact is nothing more than cover-your-ass maneuvering.

    So you think they should keep him in the UFC rankings, or are you just doing your best to try and pretend you didn't have your head up your ass when you typed that post? Because everyone knows it's the latter, but I will humor you.

    the ufc rankings are only for UFC fighters. Okami was fired so that's obvious, isn't it?
