And not top-ranked contender Vitor Belfort, who had to pull his name from the UFC 175 hat because he is weening himself of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). He is also currently unlicensed to compete in the United States, which is the reason he is not included on this latest rankings list.
Even if he is penciled in to take on "All American" next ... maybe.
That left room for someone to creep into the top 10 this month, C.B. Dollaway, who has won back-to-back matches and four of his last five appearances.
