UFC fighter rankings: Minimal changes in latest update

A lack of ranked fighters meant a lack of movement in the UFC fighter rankings.

Jason da Silva-USA TODAY Sports

The only ranked fighters from UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. LaFlare were Demian Maia, Ryan LaFlare, and Amanda Nunes. So unsurprisingly, not much was changed in the rankings after this event, but there were some other swaps that had nothing to do with the card at all. Dustin Poirier's featherweight standing improved and so did Michael Bisping's at middleweight. In fact, more changes were made involving fighters who weren't on last Saturday's show than those who were actually on it.

Pound-for-Pound: No changes

Women's Strawweight: Angela Hill moves up one spot to #13, dropping Seo Hee ham to #14.

Flyweight: John Moraga rises to 4th, which sends Jussier Formiga down to 5th for the 159th time. Tim Elliott swapped places with Dustin Ortiz, with Oritz assuming 13th and Elliott 12th.

Bantamweight: No changes

Women's Bantamweight: Amanda Nunes' win elevated her to 8th, bumping Liz Carmouche down to 9th.

Featherweight: Dustin Poirier went into a 6th placed tie with Dennis Bermudez. Poirier lost his last fight and is fighting at lightweight in less than two weeks. Words fail me.

Lightweight: No changes

Welterweight: Demian Maia's win puts him above Hector Lombard at 6th. Ryan LaFlare now bottoms out the top 15, one spot below Gunnar Nelson.

Middleweight: Michael Bisping for some reason is 9th, which sends Thales Leites down to 10th in another rankings flip-flop.

Light Heavyweight: No changes

Heavyweight: Matt Mitrione climbs to 12th as Antonio Silva's freefall continues down to 13th.
