TJ Dillashaw to Demetrious Johnson - "Don't be scared"

UFC Rankings Update: TJ Dillashaw removed from rankings

The UFC has updated their rankings after UFC Nashville. Although the card has some notable ranked fighters fighting, the biggest move is that former UFC bantamweight champion, TJ Dillashaw is removed from the rankings after he was suspended for a year for ‘adverse findings’ in a pre-fight drug test.

Meanwhile, Anthony Pettis moved into the top-10 of the welterweight rankings after his stunning KO of Stephen Thompson.

Here are the latest UFC rankings:
