UFC fighter rankings: Neil Magny vaults into welterweight's top 10

Neil Magny's upset win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night in Monterrey, Mexico netted him a spot in the top 10 of the welterweight rankings.

There weren't many changes to the UFC's latest rankings, although the two biggest winners at the TUF Latin America 2 Finale (or UFC Monterrey, or UFC Fight Night 78, or UFC That Card Lasted Too Long, whatever suits you best!) both saw considerable bumps up the ladder. Henry Cejudo moved into the top 3 following his hugely important victory against Jussier Formiga, while Neil Magny's short-notice victory over Kelvin Gastelum saw him rise four spots all the way up to 9th.

As always, the new UFC rankings, along with individual media ballots, can be found here.

Pound-for-Pound: Jon Jones improves to 4th, one spot ahead of T.J. Dillashaw. Fabricio Werdum went up to 6th, while Robbie Lawler falls to 7th. Joanna Jedrzejczyk climbed one place to 13th, while new women's 135 champion Holly Holm and Anthony Pettis respectively fell to 14th-15th.

Women's Strawweight: No changes

Flyweight: Henry Cejudo's win over Jussier Formiga moves him up two spots to 3rd, a position formerly occupited by Formiga, who drops to 5th. Chris Cariaso went from a 13th-placed tie with Louis Smolka to 14th.

Women's Bantamweight: No changes

Bantamweight: No changes

Featherweight: No changes

Lightweight: No changes

Welterweight: As mentioned earlier, Magny surged upwards to 9th. Kelvin Gastelum actually went up two spots to 13th, presumably because some rankers refused to place him until he actually made the welterweight limit. Tarec Saffiedine, Rick Story, and Gunnar Nelson make up 10th-12th, while Thiago Alves and Jake Ellenberger round out the list.

Middleweight: Robert Whittaker edges ahead of Gegard Mousasi for 8th spot.

Light Heavyweight: No changes
