ufc rankings

Michael Bisping has always believed he was one of the top fighters in the world.

Now, he has the ranking – and the belt – to back his claim.

Bisping debuted earlier this week at No. 9 in the UFC pound-for-pound Top-15 after knocking out Luke Rockhold and becoming middleweight champion.

Rockhold, who had been in the Top-5, fell all the way to No. 13. Chris Weidman also dropped four spots.

Max Holloway, Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez all moved up at featherweight, while Dustin Poirier, Rashid Magomedov and Evan Dunham did the same at lightweight. Francisco Trinaldo also debuted at No. 15 at 155 pounds.

Uriah Hall and Dan Henderson climbed at middleweight, while Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Jessica Andrade and Maryna Moroz did the same at strawweight. Andrade moved all the way from unranked to seventh following her win over Jessica Penne.

Thiago Alves, Albert Tumenov and John Lineker each moved up at their respective weight divisions.

Mark Hunt loves to stand and trade once the Octagon door closes.

And that’s all Hunt is planning on doing at UFC 200 this July 9 when he welcomes Brock Lesnar back to action.

But for Hunt, this is a chance to prove himself against a former UFC champion and continue his climb back into contention all in one. And he isn’t about to let a “part time fighter” get the best of him.

“If he has an itch to scratch, I will scratch it for him,” Hunt said in an interview with his own website recently. “I ain’t no part time fighter. He things this is a game where he can come back and forth. I will send this pretender back so he can play house with the other part timers. This realm is for the real fighters, not these damn pretenders.”

Lesnar left MMA and returned to the WWE, where he will once again head back to after UFC 200.

“Don’t confuse wrestling with real fighting,” Hunt added. “I’m going to give it to him.”
