Latest UFC rankings update: Donald Cerrone shines in Welterweight debut, drops four Lightweight spots

260 0

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently updated its official fighter rankings to reflect the results of its UFC Fight Night 83 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Sunday night (Feb. 22, 2016) inside CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Full results here.

Donald Cerrone headlined the event, making a splash in his Welterweight debut by submitting Alex Oliveira in the very first round (see it again here).

Who’s the real “Cowboy” now?

The win didn’t do much for Cerrone’s standing in the Lightweight division, however, as he inexplicably dropped four spots down to No. 9. Other than that, there wasn’t any major movement of note this week.

Here’s what the latest ranking field looks like courtesy of UFC.com. Note: (+/- = movement in rankings, *NR = Not previously ranked).
