Most people looked at UFC Hamburg as a nothing show, especially considering that the main event featured an unranked late replacement and there were only five ranked fighters on the entire card. But a couple of surprising upsets did lead to big changes in the light heavyweight division, along with some other minor tinkering.

So without further ado, here’s a look at the rankings changes for this week.

P4P - Conor McGregor continues to bump up and down, and this week took a tiny step up - into a tie for the three spot with Max Holloway.

Heavyweight - No changes.

Light Heavyweight - Basically everything from three down is different this week. Ilir Latifi is up one to three. Jan Blachowicz and Jimi Manuwa are up one each to four and five respectively. Corey Anderson is up three spots to six after defeating perennial contender Glover Teixeira. Glover dropped a huge six spots to eight. Anthony Smith entered the list at nine after knocking out Shogun Rua. Shogun fell three to 11. Dominick Reyes, Patrick Cummins, Tyson Pedro and Gadzhimurad Antigulov all fell a spot each to 12-15 respectively.

Middleweight - No changes.

Welterweight - No changes.

Lightweight - No changes.

Featherweight - Chad Mendes moved into a tie for six with teammate Josh Emmett. Yair Rodriguez continues to re-establish himself on the list after his sudden release and return, moving up one spot to 14. That bumped his next opponent, Zabit Magomedsharipov, down one to 15.

Bantamweight - No changes.

Flyweight - Brandon Moreno fell from a tie for nine with Dustin Ortiz to take over ten on his own.

Women’s Bantamweight - No changes.

Women’s Flyweight - No changes.

Women’s Strawweight - No changes.
