There was no UFC event this past weekend, but the official rankings were still updated.
TJ Grant and Nate Diaz were removed from the lightweight Top-15. And while Grant simply stated he plans to be back ranked as soon as he can, Diaz took a different path.
The Diaz path.
On Instagram, the former title contender posted a screenshot of Anthony Pettis’ recent fights, adding, “UFC Lol this is inactivity.” The picture, which you can see below, shows Pettis fighting Benson Henderson last August, Donald Cerrone last January, Joe Lauzon in early 2012 and Jeremy Stephens late in 2011.
Pettis, the UFC lightweight champion, has went through a handful of injuries over the past three years, keeping him from fighting. Currently, he is rehabbing and preparing to coach on The Ultimate Fighter 20 against Gilbert Melendez.
Just for the sake of comparison, since Pettis fought Stephens in 2011, Diaz has competed five times. He did fight four times total in 2011.
