UFC Rankings Update (7/14/20): Jorge Masvidal Drops One Spot

The latest UFC rankings update has surfaced and Jorge Masvidal has taken a slight dip.

UFC 251 took place on July 11 so that means with another event in the books, the rankings have updated. Going into UFC 251, Masvidal held the number three spot on the official UFC welterweight rankings. Following his unanimous decision loss to champion Kamaru Usman, “Gamebred” has fallen to the fourth position. Climbing ahead of him at 170 pounds is Leon Edwards.

After capturing the UFC bantamweight championship with a fifth-round TKO victory over Jose Aldo, Petr Yan has debuted on the men’s pound-for-pound list. He holds the number 13 spot. Despite his controversial split decision loss to Alex Volkanovski in their rematch, Max Holloway has moved up one spot on the pound-for-pound list.

Following his stellar UFC debut where he knocked out Volkan Oezdemir, Jiri Prochazka is now the number eight-ranked UFC light heavyweight in the world. Amanda Ribas has moved up two spots in the strawweight division after her quick submission win over Paige VanZant at UFC 251.
