188 0

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently updated its official fighter rankings to reflect the results of its UFC Fight Night 82 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Saturday night (Feb. 6, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Full results here.

As expected, welterweight “Wonderboy” Stephen Thompson rocketed up the charts by disposing of former champion Johny Hendricks (see it again here). Roy Nelsons holds steady at No. 11 despite turning away fellow heavyweight Jared Rosholt (video), while Justin Scoggins makes his flyweight ranking debut at No. 12 (after this).

That’s not all.
