Jon Jones hasn’t even fought yet, but he’s quickly regaining some old accolades. The former UFC light heavyweight champion reigned on top of the P4P rankings for a long time, but his out-of-the-cage issues forced his removal from the lists. He was reinstated last week, and is now back in the top five of the mythical pound-for-pound rankings even before he fights Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 this weekend.
Meanwhile, the UFC on Fox event in Long Island last weekend caused a small rankings ripple in a few divisions. Let’s check it out.
Middleweight - No changes.
Welterweight - Donald Cerrone moved up into a tie for six with Neil Magny. Colby Covington is up one to eight. Santiago Ponzinibbio dropped two spots to nine, despite his big win just 10 days ago. Dong Hyun Kim and Kamaru Usman flip-flopped the 12 and 13 spots. Alex Oliveira cracked the 170-pound list for the first time, jumping into the 14 spot after knocking out Ryan LaFlare.

Featherweight - Darren Elkins cracks the top ten with his win over Dennis Bermudez, moved up two spots from 12 to 10. Bermudez drops one to 11, while Doo Ho Choi drops one to 12. Renan Barao moved into a tie for 13 with Mirsad Bektic.
