He should but the MMA Freak Rankings have a rule which is standard among MMA media outlets which is that fighters that are inactive for over 12 months are ineligible due to inactivity. Once he fights he will automatically be eligible for the rankings. The champions are weight classes are sometimes given a waiver in some outlets but DJ isn't even champion.
