USA TODAY Sports

The official UFC rankings are always hotly debated. Members of the media vote after each event, and the UFC updates the ranks the following Monday.

Rankings are a good thing. It lets both the fighters and the fans know where they sit in the division. It does not always directly correspond with getting a title shot, but once a fighter cracks the top five, it is clear he is in contention.

Highlighted are nine fighters across six different divisions who just do not belong.

It is important to note that just because a fighter doesn't belong in the rankings does not mean they should be an underdog to someone who is ranked. Rankings are about the current state of the division using recent wins, losses and performances.

Let's have a look at the nine UFC fighters who need to be dropped from the rankings.
