UFC fighter rankings: Lawler, Felder out; Tybura climbs at heavyweight

New, 3 comments

Marcin Tybura’s fifth straight win has him moving into contender status at heavyweight coming out of UFC Vegas 28.

UFC Vegas 28 wasn’t exactly a dud, but not a lot happened outside of the top two fights. The decision-heavy event didn’t lead to a lot of movement rankings-wise, outside of one man - co-main event winner Marcin Tybura.

Tybura’s first-round finish of Walt Harris cemented him as a top-ten fighter at heavyweight, and probably earned him a title contender the next time he steps into the cage. In other news, Santiago Ponzinibbio re-joined the crowd of ranked welterweights, and Muslim Salikhov got in there for the first time.

He’s a look at the few changes this week.

Men’s P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - Tybura and Harris flip-flopped the eight and eleven positions respectively, putting Harris outside the top ten again. Blagoy Ivanov dropped one to take over 12 on his own.

Light Heavyweight - No changes.

Middleweight - No changes.

Welterweight - The Ponz re-enters at 13 after beating Miguel Baeza. Sean Brady drops one to 14. Salikhov enters at 15 following a decision win over Francisco Trinaldo. Robbie Lawler was apparently removed from the rankings due to inactivity.

Lightweight - Paul Felder’s removal due to retirement let a few inactive fighters move up a spot. Kevin Lee, Diego Ferreira, Drew Dober, and Thiago Moises are up one each to 11 through 14 respectively. Arman Tsarukyan enters for the first time at 15.

Featherweight - No changes.

Bantamweight - No changes.

Women’s Bantamweight - No changes.

Women’s Flyweight - Maycee Barber is up one to 13, dropping Miranda Maverick to 14. Montana De La Rosa re-enters at 15.
