Another UFC event has come and gone and the official UFC rankings have been updated accordingly. There are some odd changes this week, but everything seems to be in order for the stars of Fight Night 68.

Dan Henderson made his way into the middleweight rankings. Previously unranked, Hendo took the thirteenth spot above Robert Whittaker and Roan Carneiro.

“Big” Ben Rothwell jumped over Alistair Overeem to take the eighth spot.

Oddly enough, Anderson Silva remains on the pound-for-pound rankings despite being removed from the middleweight rankings months ago. Silva actually moved UP to the tenth spot, above the likes of Anthony Pettis and Frankie Edgar.

Check out the rest of the moves and share your thoughts on changes that need to be made in the comment section below!
