UFC fighter rankings: Dos Anjos back in contention at lightweight, Chimaev ranked at 170

Last weekend’s UFC Vegas 14 event didn’t lead to a lot of changes in the rankings.

UFC Vegas 14 wasn’t the most relevant of cards. Paul Felder had to step up on five days of notice just to save the event, which was whittled down to nine fights by the time it took place. But Rafael dos Anjos made the most of being able to stay in the headliner, working over Felder and taking all five rounds in his return to 155. One crazy scorecard notwithstanding.

Here’s a look at the changes from this week, which also saw Khamzat Chimaev as a ranked fighter at 170 pounds despite not fighting anyone even close to relevant as of yet.

Lightweight - Dos Anjos enters back into the rankings at in a tie for six with Charles Oliveira. Everyone else from seven down falls a spot to make room for the former champ.

Featherweight - No changes.
