community news, Latest UFC rankings update: Stipe Miocic debuts on pound for pound list, Vitor Belfort holds steady at 185

Thanks to his knockout win over Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 (see it), Stipe Miocic is the new UFC heavyweight champion, which not only puts him atop the 265-pound rankings, but also landed him at No. 13 on the promotion’s pound-for-pound list.

A place that saw “Vai Cavalo” plummet eleven spots.

Elsewhere on the UFC 198 fight card, Vitor Belfort was soundly beaten by Ronaldo Souza in the middleweight co-main event (replay), which took place last Saturday night (May 14, 2016) in Brazil. Fortunately for “The Phenom,” it didn’t cost him anything in the official rankings.

Go figure.
