Tyron Woodley Removed From UFC Rankings

Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is no longer a ranked fighter with the promotion.

Woodley (19-7-1) was removed from the UFC rankings on Friday, leaving room for Khamzat Chimaev to slide in at no. 15. "The Chosen One" occupied the no. 10 spot prior to his dismissal, leaving room for Geoff Neal, Jingliang Li, Belal Muhammad, Sean Brady, Robbie Lawler and Chimaev to shuffle up one spot.

Woodley was riding a seven-fight undefeated streak at the peak of his success as UFC welterweight champion. A lifeless loss to Kamaru Usman in 2019 kicked off a four-fight losing skid to Usman, Gilbert Burns, Colby Covington (by unanimous decision) and Vicente Luque (first-round submission).

Woodley has been non-committal about his UFC future; however, his loss to Luque at UFC 260 was the final fight on his current contract. After the fight, UFC President Dana White suggested Woodley should retire.
