UFC fighter rankings: New top contender at 170, Grasso up big at women’s flyweight

Alexa Grasso is now a contender at 125 pounds coming out of UFC 258.

UFC 258 wasn’t exactly super deep on paper, so it’s not surprising that the PPV didn’t have a huge effect on the rankings. Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman retained his title and top spot at 170 by taking out Gilbert Burns, and Alexa Grasso picked up the biggest win over her career by taking out Maycee Barber. Grasso benefited hugely from the win in her new division.

But that’s about it.

Here’s a look at the few changes that came out of the event.

Men’s P4P - Usman moves up one spot to four, bumping heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic to five.
