It appears as though the UFC is taking a stand against disgruntled lightweight Nate Diaz. Elias Lindholm Jersey . In Tuesdays updated rankings on the organizations website, Diaz was removed from his post as the sixth-ranked lightweight and no longer appears anywhere on the list. MMAFighting.coms Ariel Helwani is reporting UFC officials said the company labels fighters as "active" and if they dont fall under that designation they are ineligible to appear in the rankings. The twist is that Diaz last fought just six months ago, scoring a knockout victory over now eighth-ranked Gray Maynard at "The Ultimate Fighter 18" finale in November. It seems as though his inactivity is a result of recent complaints over his contract. Since his win over Maynard, Diaz frequently voiced his displeasure via Twitter, often requesting to be released by the UFC through social media. UFC president Dana White responded in March saying that Diaz "just signed a new contract that he was happy with a month ago." The situation came to a head when Diaz finally spoke in early April, unleashing a tirade about his paychecks to MMAFighting, claiming he didnt want to fight for "funny money". "They need to be about more money. My contract is all (expletive) up. I want to be paid like these other fighters. Im over here getting chump change," he said. "At this point, theyre paying all my partners and other people I train with are getting real money, and its too embarrassing for me to even fight again for the money theyre paying me. So they can either pay me or let me go. Im with that." At this point it can be assumed Diaz will remain off the list until he his booked again, which may be sooner than later after White told reports at UFC 172 that Diaz had apparently reached out to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva. "Nate said hes ready to fight," White said, "so, he told Joe to call him."

Evander Kane scored a short-handed goal and Michael Frolik also lit the lamp for the Jets, who were coming off a dominant 8-2 win over Florida on Tuesday.

Early in the third period, Blake Wheelers stick caught Erik Cole up high in the corner and drew blood to bring about a four-minute Dallas power play. Less than a minute into the man advantage, Pavelec robbed Tyler Seguin with a glove save.

The Stars threatened on the power play after Dustin Byfuglien went off for hooking 6:47 into the second, but Pavelec fought off six shots to keep the Jets in front.
