UFC Vegas 26 didn’t bring about a lot of rankings changes.

UFC Vegas 26 became way less relevant when it lost its original headliner between former bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and top contender Cory Sandhagen. Marina Rodriguez taking on Michelle Waterson was promoted to the new main event, but took place a division up due to the short notice five rounds. So, despite Rodriguez’s nice win, it doesn’t really mean anything here. Alex Morono stopping Donald Cerrone wasn’t enough for him to crack the rankings either.

So what are we left with? Not a lot. Gregor Gillespie and Neil Magny used their wins to move upwards a bit. And that’s about all.

Here’s a look at the few changes coming out of last Saturday’s Apex event.

Men’s P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - Ciryl Gane is up one spot to three, dropping Curtis Blaydes to four. Marcin Tybura moved up one spot into a tie for 11 with Blagoy Ivanov.

Light Heavyweight - No changes.

Middleweight - Chris Weidman somehow moved up a spot to 11, dropping Sean Strickland to 12.

Welterweight - Vicente Luque is up one to five. Jorge Masvidal falls two to seven. Magny’s up one to eight. Demian Maia drops to nine.

Lightweight - Islam Makhachev is up a spot to ten, tied with Paul Felder. Gillespie is up one to 12 after stopping Diego Ferreira. Ferreira drops two to 14. Drew Dober enters at 15.

Featherweight - No changes.

Bantamweight - Mareb Devalishvili and Raphael Assuncao flip-flopped the 10 and 11 spots.

Flyweight - No changes.

Women’s P4P - Claudia Gadelha moves up one spot to 14. Nina Nunes re-enters at 15. Waterson is out.
