Not only will disciplinary suspensions keep penalized fighters out of action for an extended period of time, but soon it will also keep them from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rankings, too. Take note, Mr. Silva. That's according to the Fight Metric team, who informed all members of the voting panel that moving forward, fighters who have been handed down suspensions of nine months or longer for their transgressions -- like Hector Lombard -- will no longer be allowed to be part in the official rankings.

Faber rips McGregor: He gives up
For his next fight, Urijah Faber is returning to the featherweight division and a win over Frankie Edgar could put him right back in title content. Faber recently joined 'The Fighter and The Kid' podcast and talked about he feels he matches up with some of the divisions best, including outspoken Conor McGregor: "I wouldn't mind fighting Conor. I'll tell you what - he's got something that a lot of guys don't have. Something a guy like me doesn't have, a guy like Chad Mendes doesn't have, a guy like Frankie Edgar has, and that's the instincts and willingness to give up when he's about to get knee barred. I wouldn't give up. Come on...His knee was in danger of having some pain inflicted on it and he was like, 'I'm out.'"
