UFC fighter rankings: T.J. Dillashaw re-enters bantamweight rankings near the top

T.J. Dillashaw wants his belt back and if the new rankings are any indication, he’s not far off from getting his chance.

Well, bantamweight is officially shook up again. Former champion T.J. Dillashaw sat on the sidelines for two years due to a drug suspension, and many thought he would return as a shell of his former self. That was not the case at UFC Vegas 32 as he took a decision over highly-ranked Cory Sandhagen in a great fight. This allowed him to re-enter the rankings right in the mix for a title shot.

Other than that though, not a lot had much of an effect on the rankings. Only four divisions saw any movement. Here’s a look at the changes from this week.

Men’s P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - No changes.

Light Heavyweight - No changes.

Middleweight - No changes.

Welterweight - No changes.

Lightweight - No changes.

Featherweight - No changes.

Bantamweight - Dillashaw enters at two, right behind the champ and most recent former champ. To make room, almost everyone moved down a spot. Cody Stamann stayed at 15. Kyler Phillips is out.

Flyweight - Matheus Nicolau, Sumudaerji, and Amir Albazi all move up one spot to 12 through 14. Tyson Nam re-enters at 15. Raulian Paiva, who beat Phillips at 135, is out of the flyweight rankings due to the division change.

Women’s P4P - No changes.

Women’s Bantamweight - Julia Avila and Karol Rosa move up a spot each to 13 and 14, with Alexis Davis re-entering at 15. Sijara Eubanks is out due to her drop to flyweight.

Women’s Flyweight - Maycee Barber passed Miranda Maverick for the 13 spot following her controversial split decision win.

Women’s Strawweight - No changes.
