Saturday night in Goiania, Brazil, Dan Henderson dropped his third consecutive fight, getting knocked out for the first time in his illustrious career by Vitor Belfort.

Monday afternoon, the veteran middleweight and light heavyweight competitor dropped one place in the latest edition of the UFC Fighter Rankings, falling to seventh position in the 205-pound ranks. As a result of Henderson’s move down, his friend and former Team Quest teammate Chael Sonnen – who returns to the cage to take on former champion Rashad Evans in the co-main event of UFC 167 on Saturday – moves up to No. 6 in the division.

Following each event, the members of the media that make up the voting panel cast their ballots across the UFC’s eight divisions, as well as submitting their choices for the pound-for-pound rankings.

After Saturday’s UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson event, there were only a handful of other changes to the rankings, including undefeated former Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann climbing one spot to third in the women’s bantamweight division, and heavyweight finisher Stipe Miocic trading places with former champion Frank Mir, the 10-1 Miocic moving to No. 8 as Mir falls to No. 9.
