UFC fighter rankings: C.B. Dollaway ranked at 185

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

Long-time UFC middleweight fighter C.B. Dollaway finally cracked the top 15 in the latest edition of the official UFC rankings.

Despite the fact that the UFC held two events last weekend, there wasn't much in the line of crazy rankings changes in the aftermath. The winning fighters in the few high-profile bouts did make some moves though, and the division with the biggest changes was the 185-pound list. C.B. Dollaway made his rankings debut following a solid win over Francis Carmont, and Gegard Mousasi's win over Mark Munoz sent him up four spots in the rankings.

Here's a look at the changes since last week:

P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - Stipe Miocic's win over natural light heavyweight Fabio Maldonado did do him some good in the rankings, as he moved past Alistair Overeem for the six spot. Brendan Schaub also moved up one spot to 13, passing Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Light Heavyweight - Ryan Bader moved up one spot to nine, dropping Chael Sonnen to 10. Ovince St. Preux dropped back into the 14 spot alone after being tied with Vitor Belfort for 13 last week.

Middleweight - Lots o' movement. Lyoto Machida moved back into the number two spot he lost to Belfort last week. Mousasi now sits in Munoz's old seven spot, with Munoz dropping two spots to nine. Yoel Romero moved up one to 11. Dollaway made his debut at 12. Francis Carmont fell four spots to 13 after his loss. Tim Boetsch also dropped one spot to 14.

Welterweight - No changes.

Lightweight - Gilbert Melendez reclaimed the number one contender spot after just a week, bumping Ben Henderson back to two. Rafael dos Anjos moved into a tie with Donald Cerrone for the five spot. And finally, Michael Johnson and Gray Maynard flip-flopped the eight and ten spots somehow, leaving Myles Jury to stay at nine.

Featherweight - Only one change - Dennis Siver took his seven spot back from Clay Guida, relegating The Carpenter to eight once again.

Bantamweight - Francisco Rivera recovered a bit after his UFC 173 loss by moving back up a spot to 11, which dropped Erik Perez to 12.

Flyweight - Joseph Benavidez moved into a tie with John Dodson for the number one contender spot.

Women's Bantamweight - No changes.
