UFC Rankings for Each Weight Division Following UFC 168
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

For years, Anderson Silva sat at the top of the middleweight UFC rankings. At UFC 168, his torch was officially passed to new 185-pound champion Chris Weidman.

In July, "The Spider" was caught with a left hook while taunting Weidman. The resulting knockout marked Silva's first loss inside the Octagon. On Saturday, Weidman made it two defeats in a row for the Brazilian.

Weidman knocked Silva down in the first round and dominated the rest of the stanza with ground-and-pound. In the second frame, Silva had a heavy leg kick checked, causing his lower leg to snap in brutal fashion, an injury that could end the legend's MMA career.

It may not matter moving forward, but how will Silva's standing in the pound-for-pound rankings be impacted as a result of back-to-back losses? Will Weidman inch closer to becoming top five in the pound-for-pound rankings?

With UFC 168 in the books and UFC Fight Night 34 ahead, here are the latest official UFC rankings.
