Same as it ever was? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues to reshuffle its welterweight rankings in the wake of recent events like UFC Fight Night 54, where Rory MacDonald slept Tarec Saffiedine on FOX Sports 1. Unfortunately, the highlight-reel win (watch it) didn't do much to improve his standing. But UFC 181 will take care of that. Until then, we have to sort things out in this rapidly-changing division.
