The UFC has released its official rankings and while there aren’t many shockers or surprises included, there is one funny detail: Chael Sonnen didn’t make it into the top 10 for middleweight OR light heavyweight. You can partially blame that on his jumping between weight classes – he does have a legit case for being a top five middleweight. Four press members did include him in their light heavyweight rankings, but that wasn’t enough to erase the other 30 ignoring him completely. Is this just a temporary wrinkle in the rankings for Chael or evidence that his all style and no substance approach is starting to cost him some serious legitimacy points in the sport?
