My guess has always been two people challenge the same opponent, the first one wins and the opponent drops rank. Then you win and swap ranks, but the rank is now lower so you get that lower rank. It's a classic race condition that DB should have guarded against, but I have 0 confidence they handled it,.

Avitek is right I have had this happen a few times. Usually when it happens I am battling for top 5. Which many others do too. Pretty much this shows that the one that loses is swapped in rank with the one that won. And now imagine you won and the other person that fought won too. Basically it all depends on who is swapped first, whether you actually get the rank that you fought for or the the other persons rank which fought the same opponent.
As far as, you not seeing actual rank, once you select which division you will fight in, any rank you select is the actual rank you are fighting for. So if your rank was wrong, you still are battling for the rank you selected. If you win, may be possible that the loser could drop a 1000 in rank.
