For as much as UFC 182 featured several ranked fighters throughout the main card, there weren't to many changes made in the first rankings update of 2015. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that Kyoji Horiguchi soared into the top 10 even though opponent Louis Gaudinot was not ranked. The biggest notable story is Daniel Cormier's removal from the pound-for-pound list after he lost a unanimous decision to LHW champion Jon Jones. Cormier was ranked 13th coming into last Saturday's main event, but has since been bumped out of the top 15.
