Israel Adesanya moves up to sixth in UFC middleweight rankingsJULIO CORTEZ/AP Israel Adesanya celebrates his first-round knockout over Derek Brunson in New York. Israel Adesanya has been made to wait to enter the top five middleweight rankings despite his sensational performance at UFC 230 in New York last weekend. But the latest updates to the rankings has left him sitting just outside, moving up three spots to take Brunson's place at No 6 while the American has fallen to eighth. The UFC rankings are generated by a voting panel made up of media members. But UFC president Dana White has already indicated that the 29-year-old is line for a marquee matchup and the latest rankings will have little impact on that.
