community news, Latest UFC rankings update: Derrick Lewis cracks Top 15, Ben Rothwell suffers Big drop in Croatia

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently updated its official fighter rankings to reflect the results of its UFC Fight Night 86 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Sunday (April 10, 2016) inside Croatia’s Zagreb Arena on FOX Sports 1.

Full results and play-by-play here.

As expected, heavyweight bruiser Ben Rothwell lost some of his momentum following a five-round decision loss to ex-division champion Junior dos Santos (replay), who helped his own cause in the 265-pound title chase. Elsewhere on the card, Derrick Lewis cracked the Top 15 by cracking unranked veteran Gabriel Gonzaga (watch it).

That’s not all.
