With four straight wins, Dong Hyun Kim has done enough to surpass former Strikeforce champion Tarec Saffiedine in the welterweight rankings.
During his current winning streak, Kim has stopped Erick Silva and John Hathaway, who are both one big win away from a spot in the Top 15. Saffiedine, meanwhile, has not beaten a Top 15 fighter and has still only made one trip to the Octagon.
Saffiedine showed some solid potential under the Strikeforce banner, but he needs to remain more active and beat some high-level welterweights in order maintain a Top 10 position.
Silva has still not managed to win consecutive UFC bouts, so it's not surprising to see him fall from the Top 15 rankings. That said, he deserves a spot over Rick Story.
Since losing to Charlie Brenneman, Story has not beaten a Top 15 adversary. Silva is also still looking for his first Top 15 win, but the Brazilian stopped Brenneman in the first round during June 2012.
Based on recent performance, Silva has a stronger case for a Top 15 position than Story does.
