“Everyone is talking about Nate Diaz being removed and so has TJ Grant, for inactivity. Early on we let Dominick Cruz hold the title for as long as we did. But it’s unfair for the guys who are staying active. When you have a guy like TJ Grant and they have an injury, that’s pretty serious so they get dropped, but when they come back, they’ll get added back. The same for Diaz – he’s not taking any fights and we’re not sure when he will. When he comes back, he’ll be ranked again.”

Tonight on Fox Sports 1, UFC President Dana White stopped by to clear the air on the recent removal of Nate Diaz and TJ Grant from the official UFC rankings.

Both were previously in the top 5.

Dana also discussed the ongoing issues with Nate Diaz, check that HERE.
