USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA rankings, Sept. 18: How far did Mark Hunt drop?



Things looked good for Mark Hunt early on against Aleksei Oleinik this past Saturday. Then the bottom fell out.

Oleinik (57-11-1 MMA, 6-2 UFC) had to eat a few vicious kicks from Hunt (13-13-1 MMA, 8-7-1 UFC) in their UFC Fight Night 136 main event in Moscow. But when Oleinik got the fight to the ground, even though the talk was about Hunt’s physique and a neck that is hard to find, he was able to pull off a rear-naked choke to get the finish.

Hunt was the No. 11 heavyweight in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings heading into the fight. Oleinik was unranked. So how far did Hunt fall on the list, and where did Oleinik wind up after the upset?
