Vitor Takes Rankings Dive, No Longer Listed In UFC’s Top 10 — Here’s His New Spot

Ultimate Fighting Championship fans saw the fall of a legend when Vitor Belfort suffered another rough knockout loss at “UFC Fight Night 106”. Kelvin Gastelum proved he has what it takes to hang with the best in the middleweight when he essentially knocked Belfort out of the top ten with his first round knockout win.

Just two years ago, Belfort was stepping into the octagon to challenge then-champion Chris Weidman for his middleweight championship. Now, Belfort is riding a three fight losing streak and is nowhere near the elite in the middleweight division. Check out the latest rankings update in the middleweight division below:

Middleweight: Vitor Belfort suffered a devastating knockout loss, dropping him two spots from ninth to eleventh. The shift moved him out of the top ten, and allowed Kelvin Gastelum to jump into eighth. Gastelum knocked Derek Brunson down to ninth, and Krzysztof Jotko now rounds out the top ten.
