UFC fighter rankings update: Davis moves into top 3, Kennedy enters top 10

Joshua Lindsey-USA TODAY Sports

A look at the newest changes in the UFC's official fighter rankings following UFC Fight For The Troops 3 on Wednesday.

The new UFC rankings are out (although they'll be soon updated again on Monday afternoon), and as you can expect the women's bantamweight division saw the biggest and most significant change in the top 10. Alexis Davis came into her fight with Liz Carmouche ranked 6th, while Carmouche was placed 4th. Davis' win has lifted the Canadian to #3 behind Cat Zingano and Miesha Tate, while Carmouche falls to 7th. This also resulted in a bump from #3 to #4 for Sara McMann and from #7 to #6 for Jessica Eye.

On the men's side, following his KO win over Rafael Natal, Tim Kennedy moved into the 10th spot at middleweight behind Constantinos Philippou. Featherweight saw Darren Elkins replace Steven Siler at #10, behind #9 ranked Clay Guida. Interestingly enough, welterweight saw a few changes in the lower half of the top 10, with Nick Diaz falling three spots to 9th, while Jake Shields and Matt Brown occupy #6 and #7 respectively. Martin Kampmann fell to 8th.
