Official UFC rankings updated after UFC Fight Night 32: Vitor Belfort holds at No. 2, Dan Henderson plummets to No. 7

Copyright: Martin McNeil

UFC.com has updated its "official" consensus rankings following this past Saturday night's UFC Fight Night 32 event (now with three contributions from MMAmania.com). Check out the big mixed martial arts (MMA) movers and shakers below.

Vitor Belfort is next in line for a title shot. Dan Henderson is not.

In fact, "Hendo" may have been tossed from the division title chase for good, after suffering his third straight loss, a first round knockout at the hands (and feet) of "The Phenom" last weekend (Nov. 9, 2013) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 32 on FOX Sports 1 in Brazil (watch it).

It also sent him tumbling down the rankings.

True, "Hendo" only fell one spot, but at 43 years of age, even one place in line is a monumental setback, especially with the invasion of heavyweight Daniel Cormier. And let's not forget about Jimi Manuwa, who could insert himself into the top 10 by upsetting Alexander Gustafsson next year in London.

For now, there's just no room in the ranks for "Poster Boy."

If you're wondering how the world's largest MMA promotion (in conjunction with FightMetric) compiles its list, here's the criteria:

Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC and a fighter can only appear in one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.

That voting panel includes MMAmania's own George Halvatzis Jr, Matthew Roth and Michael Stets. You can check how our rankings stack up compared to the overall consensus by selecting either "George Halvatzis Jr. (MMAmania.com)," "Matthew Roth (MMAmania.com)" or "Michael Steczkowski (MMAmania.com)" in the voting panelists tab at the top of the page.
