31 Jan Georges St-Pierre Removed From Middleweight Rankings
The latest UFC rankings confirm what many people expected as Georges St-Pierre was removed from the middleweight rankings.
The Canadian won the UFC middleweight championship on his return to the company after four years against Michael Bisping at UFC 217 but later relinquished the belt after suffering from colitis; casting doubt over his long-term future at 185lbs.
GSP remains on the pound-for-pound list which could suggest he is not finished fighting just yet and could move back down to welterweight where he was once a dominant champion. He did fall three places to sixth with Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic both on the rise.
Current UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, has been vocal in calling for a fight with St-Pierre to prove who is truly the best welterweight to ever compete in the UFC and a move back to 170 is believed to be the next move for GSP to fight Woodley or even Conor McGregor.
St-Pierre’s removal from the rankings sees a number of fighters rise in his absence including Derek Brunson, Chris Weidman, Kelvin Gastelum, Michael Bisping, David Branch, Uriah Hall and Vitor Belfort.
Mirsad Bektic’s huge victory at UFC Charlotte sees him rise three places in the featherweight rankings while UFC 220 main card winner, Calvin Kattar, also enters the top 15 for the first time.
