Now that UFC 158 is in the rear view mirror, the UFC rankings have once again been updated and predictably there is some movement in the Welterweight division after the weekend.

However, names changing places in the Middleweight, Lightweight & Women’s Bantamweight divisions, despite none of those affected having been in fights since the last set of rankings, once again shows just how subjective the current system really is.

Anyway, the votes are in and here are the latest results:
