The UFC is taking a rare break this coming out of UFC Vegas 27, which honestly didn’t bring a lot of intrigue. While the main event fight between Rob Font and Cody Garbrandt was quite good, Font shut out the former champ and stayed in the same place in the rankings. The co-main saw the most impact from a rankings perspective, with Carla Esparza making a case for a title shot at women’s bantamweight with a TKO win over Yan Xiaonan.

Here’s a look at the few changes from his week.

Men’s P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - No changes.

Light Heavyweight - No changes.

Middleweight - Jack Hermansson is up one to six, dropping Darren Till to seven.

Welterweight - No changes.

Lightweight - Paul Felder’s retirement led to him dropping two spots to ten. I’m actually surprised he’s still in at all. Islam Makhachev and Gregor Gillespie move up one each to eight and nine.

Featherweight - No changes.

Bantamweight - Jose Aldo is up one spot to four and Garbrandt is down one to five.

Flyweight - No changes.

Women’s P4P - Esparza is up four spots to nine. Aspen Ladd is down two to 11. Yan Ziaonan is down two to 13. Julianna Pena enters at 14. Claudia Gadelha falls one to 15.

Women’s Bantamweight - No changes

Women’s Flyweight - No changes.

Women’s Strawweight - Esparza is up one to three. Xiaonan is down one to four. Marina Rodriguez and Mackenzie Dern flip-flop the five and six spots.
