New, comments

The UFC’s last show on Fox didn’t shake up the rankings all that much.

The UFC closed out their broadcast deal with Fox with one final show on the big network. And while the action was extremely good, the fights didn’t really mean a lot to the rankings outside the main event. In that headliner, Al Iaquinta cemented his place in the top of the lightweight division with a hard-fought decision win over Kevin Lee. But other than that? Nada.

Here’s a look at the all the changes this week.

P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - No changes.

Light Heavyweight - No changes.

Middleweight - Elias Theodorou moves up one to 13. That drops Uriah Hall to 14.

Welterweight - No changes.

Lightweight - Iaquinta is up four spots to four. That drops Kevin Lee, Edson Barboza, Justin Gaethje, and Anthony Pettis one spot each from five to eight respectively.

Featherweight - No changes.

Bantamweight - No changes.

Flyweight - With Sergio Pettis moving to bantamweight, basically everyone in the division moved up a spot. Matt Schnell enters the ranking at 15.

Women’s Bantamweight - The only change saw Tonya Evinger move up one spot from 12 to a tie for 11 with Bethe Correia.

Women’s Flyweight - Joanna Jedrzejczyk is up two spots to four (despite the arrows being all wrong). Alexis Davis and Liz Carmouche drop one spot each to five and six.

Women’s Strawweight - No changes.
