UFC Vegas 33 set a dubious record over the weekend. It was the event that resulted in the least amount of rankings movement since the rankings were introduced years ago. Just two divisions saw any movement at all, and one of them had nothing to do with the results from this card.

With that being said, Sean Strickland certainly plunked himself directly into the middleweight mix with a dominant win over Uriah Hall in the headliner. He’s up a couple of spots, and will be looking for an even bigger fight next.

Here’s a look at the very few changes this week.

Men’s P4P - No changes.

Heavyweight - Walt Harris moves up one spot to 11, dropping Blagoy Ivanov to 12.

Light Heavyweight - No changes.

Middleweight - Strickland is up three spots to eight, cracking the top ten for the first time. Hall falls two spots to ten. Edmen Shahbazyan is down one to 11.

Welterweight - No changes.

Lightweight - No changes.

Featherweight - No changes.

Bantamweight - No changes.

Flyweight - No changes.

Women’s P4P - No changes.

Women’s Bantamweight - No changes.

Women’s Flyweight - No changes.

Women’s Strawweight - No changes.
