Rankings are just a bunch of numbers, right?

While that may be an actuality, rankings often serve as an index for each and every divisional map.

Now while some values may be skewed and others short-handed, the UFC has done its best to maintain stability from the very depths of its roster.

But that doesn’t mean some names are given numbers, or the lack thereof, that fail to articulate their true worth in blood, sweat, skill and perennial success.

Here are eight fighters who deserve to be slotted higher up in the UFC’s official rankings.

Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza is on a mission to bring the middleweight championship back to Brazil. 

On Friday, the former Strikeforce titleholder submitted Gegard Mousasi. The victory improved Jacare’s UFC record to 4-0, putting him at the front of the line for a shot at the winner of a December championship bout between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort.

Sitting at No. 4 among 185-pound contenders heading into UFC Fight Night 50, Souza did his best to improve his positioning. Was it enough to surpass fellow Brazilians Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida or Belfort, though?

Women’s MMA is growing, and we must keep up with the times. Women are getting more and more opportunities in mixed martial arts and are becoming more prevalent on the big stage.

The UFC, Invicta and World Series of Fighting are just three of the major organizations that host female fighters. When you consider Jewels, MMA Super Heroes and several other promotions that let the ladies compete, you have a bunch of proving grounds for these up-and-coming athletes.

Here is this month’s installment of Bleacher Report’s women’s MMA rankings.

Heading into UFC 177, bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw was still ranked below scheduled challenger Renan Barao in the official pound-for-pound rankings.

On Friday, Barao withdrew from the rematch with Dillashaw due to weight-cutting issues. Dillashaw, meanwhile, went on to pick up his first title defense against late replacement opponent Joe Soto.

Will the weekend’s events be enough to catapult Dillashaw past Barao?

Following UFC Fight Night 48, it didn’t look like the UFC rankings would be shaken up too much.

Middleweight contender Michael Bisping disposed of unranked former Strikeforce champion Cung Le in the main attraction. Similarly, Tyron Woodley steamrolled Dong Hyun Kim, who was ranked lower than him in the welterweight division.

Then, UFC Fight Night 49 came on Saturday evening and caused all kinds of chaos.

Thales Leites knocked out Francis Carmont, who was ranked three positions higher than the Brazilian heading into the weekend. Unranked welterweight Jordan Mein likely bounced Mike Pyle from the ranking with a knockout victory of his own. Finally, and most surprisingly, Rafael dos Anjos stunned former lightweight champion Benson Henderson in the headlining matchup.

What movement has all this caused in the Top 15 rankings? Here are the latest official UFC rankings via UFC.com, which are voted on by various members of the MMA media.

Although he’s had some ups and downs throughout his UFC career, Ryan Bader has remained a highly ranked light heavyweight for several years now.

On Saturday, Bader took care of business against the up-and-coming Ovince Saint Preux. The Strikeforce veteran brought an undefeated UFC record into the weekend, but he was unable to find an answer to Bader’s All-American-level wrestling.

In holding serve against a contender on the rise, Bader ensured he would remain one of the Top 10 205-pounders on the UFC roster. Did his decision win move him upward at all, though?

According to the current official UFC rankings, the top-five pound-for-pound fighters in the UFC are Jon Jones, Jose Aldo, Cain Velasquez, Demetrious Johnson and Chris Weidman, in that order. Jones at No. 1 is all but indisputable, and Aldo at No. 2 is really the only other option. Beyond that, the rest of the rankings are up for debate.

No. 3 is the heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez. Cain is a two-time UFC heavyweight champion and has defended his title a total of two times. He is 13-1, with 11 finishes by (T)KO and only two decisions. His one loss was a 64-second knockout loss to Junior dos Santos to lose the title his first time.

Following the loss to dos Santos, Cain rattled off four straight wins en route to getting his belt back. The first fight was a TKO at 3:36 of the first round against Antonio Silva, which earned Cain another crack at the title, and a rematch against dos Santos.

Cain absolutely dominated the fight, earning a unanimous decision with scores of 50-45, 50-44 and 50-43. He has defended his title twice in his current reign, first with another first-round TKO over Antonio Silva, and then with a fifth-round TKO over dos Santos in their third fight.

He is undoubtedly one of the top-five fighters in the UFC, but should Velasquez really be ranked above the flyweight champion, No. 4-ranked, Demetrious Johnson?

Johnson is undefeated since having dropped to flyweight. His first fight was a majority draw against Ian McCall, and his second was a unanimous decision over McCall in their rematch. Johnson’s next fight came against Joseph Benavidez for the inaugural flyweight title. Johnson won by split decision (48-47, 47-48, 49-46), and began his dominant title reign.

In his first defense, Johnson defeated The Ultimate Fighter 14 bantamweight winner, John Dodson by unanimous decision with scores of 49-46, 48-47 and 48-47. Dodson’s loss to Johnson is his only loss since 2010. In addition, their fight won Fight of the Night.

Johnson scored his first UFC finish in his next defense, as he earned Submission of the Night for his fifth-round armbar over John Moraga, in a fight that Johnson had dominated entirely.

For Johnson’s third title defense, he again faced off against Joseph Benavidez. This fight went very differently than the first, as Johnson scored a knockout with a huge right hand at just 2:08 of the first round. 

Johnson’s most recent fight—his fourth title defense—came against Ali Bagautinov, who had been on an 11-fight win streak with seven finishes. Johnson won a unanimous decision with scores of 50-45 on all three scorecards. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Bagautinov later failed a post-fight drug test for EPO. For those who may not know, EPO is a hormone that controls production of red-blood cells.

Johnson has defended his title a total of four times. In a division not known for finishes, Johnson has scored a finish in two of his defenses over top competitors. He has also earned wins over all of the top five fighters in the division.

Velasquez has only defended his title twice. He failed to defend the title his first time with the belt, and he lost it after being knocked out in just 64 seconds.

In addition, his last five fights have come against the same two opponents, and those are the only two opponents in the top 15 that he has beaten.

At the end of the day, Demetrious Johnson deserves to be the No. 3 pound-for-pound fighter in the world. With a win over Chris Cariaso at UFC 178, Johnson might even be able to make a case to be No. 2.
