UFC fighter rankings: Ben Henderson ranked in two divisions

Former lightweight champion Ben Henderson has become one of the few fighters to be ranked in two divisions.

Lili Troncale-USA TODAY Sports

Last weekend's card in South Korea wasn't exactly super high on the relevance scale, so the fact that it didn't lead to a rankings upheaval is unsurprising. There were a few changes though, and a certain former lightweight champ is now ranked in two divisions at the same time. He joins Vitor Belfort, Chael Sonnen, and other people I'm probably forgetting on this short list. There's your useless, incomplete MMA trivia for the day, folks. You're welcome.

Anyway, onto the (few) changes.

P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - No changes.

Light Heavyweight - No changes.

Middleweight - No changes.

Welterweight - Ben Henderson enters the rankings at 15 after his headlining decision win over Jorge Masvidal. That was the only change.

Lightweight - Henderson slid four spots to 11. He has now fought twice at welterweight and appears to be staying there, so it's good to see people actually acknowledging that. Slowly.  The ripple effect from this caused Tony Ferguson to move up one spot to seven, Beneil Dariush to move up two spots to eight, and Al Iaquinta to move up one spot to 10. Jim Miller also moved into a tie for the 14 spot with Nate Diaz.

Featherweight - No changes.

Bantamweight - Thomas Almeida moved back ahead of Bryan Caraway for the six spot. John Lineker and Eddie Wineland also flip-flopped the 11 and 12 spots.

Flyweight - No changes.

Women's Bantamweight - Julianna Pena cracked the top five, dropping Sarah Kaufman one spot to six.

Women's Strawweight - Michelle Waterson moved up one spot to 10, bumping Maryna Moroz to 11.
