Welterweight: Neil Magny re-emerges in the welterweight rankings at #15 while Geoff Neal (#14) and Gilbert Burns (#12) both move upward as well.

Middleweight: No changes

Light Heavyweight: No changes

Heavyweight: In about as much of an ascension as you could expect one man to make in one card’s time, Jairzinho Rozenstruik catapults nine positions up to #5 to draw even with Derrick Lewis in the heavyweight rankings after defeating Alistair Overeem by TKO. Overeem himself falls two spots to #8, and Rozenstruik’s rise causes everyone who was beneath Overeem last week to drop a spot. Martin Tybura also reappears in the rankings at #15.
