UFC rankings updated after UFC Fight Night 67: Carlos Condit stays put at No. 4, Charles Oliveira jumps to No. 7

New, comments
Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has been tinkering with its "official" rankings after it wrapped things up on FOX Sports 1 last weekend (Sat., May 30, 2015), where Carlos Condit smashed Thiago Alves in the UFC Fight Night 67 mixed martial arts (MMA) main event (replay here).

Not that it made any difference in the welterweight rankings.

One person who was moving and shaking in the latest update was Charles Oliveira, whose performance against Nik Lentz inside the half-empty Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil (watch it), was good enough to earn a promotion to No. 7 at 145 pounds. Unfortunately, that also means a drop to No. 8 for Dennis Bermudez.

That's not all.

Here's what the entire ranking field looks like courtesy of UFC.com. Note: (+/- = movement in rankings, *NR = Not previously ranked).

Sorry, I've long since given up trying to figure this list out.

That said, you can expect these standings to change -- especially in the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions -- when UFC Fight Night 68 goes down this Saturday night (June 6, 2015) inside the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
