Rankings: Diaz Nowhere To Be Found; Silva Jumps In P-4-P

 Check out the complete Official UFC Rankings
 

Anderson Silva jumped a spot to No. 8 past UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw in the pound-4-pound rankings in this week’s official UFC rankings release after winning by unanimous decision against Nick Diaz at UFC 183.

Surprisingly, Diaz, who has gone the distance against Silva and welterweight legend Georges St-Pierre in his last two fights, still does not appear on the official rankings.

The Stockton native received five votes at 170 and two votes at 185. However, neither collection of votes were enough for Diaz to even sniff the top 15.

Al Iaquinta vs. Joe Lauzon After recording his third-straight TKO with a second round finish of Joe Lauzon at UFC 183, Al Iaquinta makes his debut in the rankings, jumping three spots to No. 15 at lightweight.

Thiago Alves made his welterweight return at UFC 183 and his impressive TKO win earned him the biggest jump of the week. He moved up 10 spots to make his first appearance on the rankings at No. 13 at 170.

John Lineker fell a spot to No. 7 at flyweight despite his convincing victory over No. 3 Ian McCall. The reason is likely because Lineker missed weight for the fourth time of his UFC career, and UFC President Dana White said he will be forced to move up to bantamweight for his future fights.

Kelvin Gastelum is also being forced to move up a weight class after missing weight by nine pounds last week. He fell three spots in the rankings to No. 10 at 170.

In other movement, Thales Leites earned his fifth-straight win against Tim Boetsch on Saturday. Leites moves up a spot to No. 10 at 185, which Boetsch falls a spot to No. 14. Sara McMann dropped a spot in the women’s bantamweight division to No. 4 after her loss to Miesha Tate.
