Rockhold ranked No. 7 middleweight by UFC

For the first time ever, the UFC released its own official rankings on Monday and Santa Cruz’s Luke Rockhold was No. 7 in the middleweight division.

Here is the top 10 middleweights:

Champion : Anderson Silva
1 Chris Weidman
2 Vitor Belfort
3 Michael Bisping
4 Yushin Okami
5 Mark Munoz
6 Constantinos Philippou
7 Luke Rockhold
8 Hector Lombard
9 Alan Belcher
10 Tim Boetsch

Rockhold, a Soquel High alum, has yet to make his UFC debut. He has a 10-1 record, won nine straight matches, and is the last remaining middleweight champion of the now-defunct Strikeforce promotion.

The rankings are decided by the media. One writer explained the process here.

Not surprisingly, the UFC middleweight champion Silva is also the pound-for-pound No. 1-ranked fighter as well.
