06:13 PM ET 12.09 | Following an epic performance at UFC Fight Night 33 against No. 4 heavyweight Antonio Silva, the previously unranked Mark Hunt has been rewarded by leaping in to the latest edition of the official UFC fighter rankings. Hunt leaps up to No. 9, where he sits behind former champion Frank Mir and ahead of promising heavyweight prospect Stipe Miocic. His move to ninth place bumped former TUF champion Roy "Big Country" Nelson out of the top 10 standings. Nelson had been a mainstay in the top 10, but a three-fight losing streak and the impressive performance from Hunt is all it took to warrant the change.
