Pic: UFC Removes Yushin Okami From Middleweight Rankings, Lists Just Top 9 Fighters

And then there were nine! Yushin Okami, the No. 6-ranked Middleweight fighter on UFC's roster up until this past weekend, is no longer featured on the promotion's Top 9 Top 10 list (view it here). Okami was recently cut after getting knocked out by Ronaldo Souza earlier this month. UFC President Dana White claimed his role of divisional "gatekeeper" forced his surprise exit, even though "Thunder" compiled a record of 13-5 in the Octagon during a seven-year tenure. With Okami removed from the rankings, Luke Rockhold, Francis Carmont, Costa Philippou and Chael Sonnen are suddenly better than they were yesterday. Meanwhile, Alessio Sakara (6-7-1 in UFC) prepares to battle Magnus Cedenblad at UFC Fight Night 30 later this month. Makes imperfect sense.

Former Strikeforce, Dream and K-1 Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem was one of the many fans who picked up a release-day copy of Grand Theft Auto V this week. "The Reem" contributed to the ridiculous $800 million sales on the first day. Hopefully he can stop battling police officers long enough to get some solid training in for his upcoming pivotal UFC 167 bout against former champion Frank Mir later this year. Did any of you join Overeem in buying GTA V?

UFC Fight Night 27 was an incredible night which featured a wide array of violent finishes, slick submissions and spectacular brawls, but no one was more violent than "The Natural Born Killer" Carlos Condit once he smelled blood against Martin Kampmann in the third and fourth rounds. Condit poured it on, battering and lacerating "The Hitman's" face, resulting in this spectacular Frankenstein-esque image from the post-fight press conference (via Will Fox of Fightland). For a recap of Condit's main event victory, click here.

Well, that's one hurdle, anyway. Only Nick Diaz can make the UFC attendance policy front page news. Now to keep him and Georges St. Pierre from going at it during the staredowns. Stay tuned!

Pic: Tim Boetsch's busted up face after his third round knockout loss to Costa Philippou at UFC 155 last night (Sat., Dec. 29, 2012) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. That's the look of a "Barbarian," folks. Maybe not as bad as Joe Lauzon, though. For more on Boetsch's loss to Philippou click here and here.

Daniel Cormier UFC contract is signed, sealed, and delivered, according to the man himself, who revealed as much on the UFC 155 weigh-ins show on FUEL TV today (Dec. 28, 2012) in Las Vegas. Before he can come to the Octagon and wreck shop, though, he's got business to take care of in Strikeforce, like his scheduled bout against Dion Staring on Jan. 12, 2013, in Oklahoma City.

Anthony Perosh's toe after surgery to repair that nasty bone-through-skin break he suffered in training recently. You can see how it looked before doctors performed surgery on it by clicking here. I warn you, it's extremely graphic and not for those with a weak stomach. According to Perosh, he should be back to training in six-to-eight weeks.
