At light heavyweight, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira jumped into the top five with a huge upset over Rashad Evans, who fell all the way from No. 2 to No. 6. The division is now wide open — it’s basically Jon Jones and everybody else at this point.
In the welterweight division, Demian Maia defeated perennial contender Jon Fitch to move up to No. 4 at 170 pounds, a win that immediately established him as one of the top contenders in the division.
And at flyweight, Joseph Benavidez jumped up to No. 2 again after defeating Ian McCall at UFC 156. It’s likely he’ll fight champion Demetrious Johnson in a rematch in the coming months.
The next event if UFC on FUEL TV 7 on Feb. 16, so check back the day after the fights to see the updated rankings.
