UFC fighter rankings: Al Iaquinta cracks top five at lightweight

125 0

The UFC closed out their broadcast deal with Fox with one final show on the big network. And while the action was extremely good, the fights didn’t really mean a lot to the rankings outside the main event. In that headliner, Al Iaquinta cemented his place in the top of the lightweight division with a hard-fought decision win over Kevin Lee. But other than that? Nada.

Here’s a look at the all the changes this week.

P4P – No changes.

Heavyweight – No changes.

Light Heavyweight – No changes.

Middleweight – Elias Theodorou moves up one to 13. That drops Uriah Hall to 14.

Welterweight – No changes.

Lightweight – Iaquinta is up four spots to four. That drops Kevin Lee, Edson Barboza, Jutin Gaethje, and Anthony Pettis one spot each from five to eight respectively.

Featherweight – No changes.

Bantamweight – No changes.

Flyweight – With Sergio Pettis moving to bantamweight, basically everyone in the division moved up a spot. Matt Schnell enters the ranking at 15.

Women’s Bantamweight – The only change saw Tonya Evinger move up one spot from 12 to a tie for 11 with Bethe Correia.

Women’s Flyweight – Joanna Jedrzejczyk is up two spots to four (despite the arrows being all wrong). Alexis Davis and Liz Carmouche drop one spot each to five and six.

Women’s Strawweight – No changes.
