Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently updated its official fighter rankings after a very busy International Fight Week in Las Vegas, Nevada, which played host to UFC Fight Night 90, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 23 Finale, and UFC 200.

Full results here, here, and here.

It was a busy week of fights that saw Eddie Alvarez take out Rafael dos Anjos to claim the lightweight title (watch it) at UFC Fight Night 90 and Joanna Jedrzejczyk retain her strawweight strap at the following night by beating Claudia Gadelha for a second time (recap).

At UFC 200, Amanda Nunes defeated Miesha Tate to claim the women’s bantamweight title (see it) and Daniel Cormier beat out Anderson Silva in a non-title scrap while Jose Aldo won the interim featherweight strap by taking out Frankie Edgar (video).

With plenty of action to go around, the rankings changed drastically, including Brock making his way back into the top 10 after five years away. And while he didn’t compete at UFC 200 thanks to this, Jon Jones dropped two spots in the pound-for-pound list.
