UFC Rankings: “The Dominator” Climbs The Pound-For-Pound Chart


UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz rose to No. 4 in the latest UFC rankings for the pound-for-pound Top-15.

Cruz climbed three spots and is now tied with lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. The changes saw Robbie Lawler, the welterweight titleholder, fall two spots, along with Luke Rockhold and Daniel Cormier moving up one position each.

Despite winning, Donald Cerrone dropped four spots to ninth at lightweight, as his bout vs. Alex Oliveira took place at welterweight. It remains unknown what Cerrone’s plans are for now. Nate Diaz, Michael Johnson and Beneil Dariush all moved up.

Anderson Silva, who takes on Michael Bisping this Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 84, is now ranked fifth at middleweight.

Hector Lombard and Ruslan Magomedov debuted back in their respective weight class rankings.
