1. Stipe Miocic

2. Fabricio Werdum

3. Cain Velasquez

4. Alistair Overeem

5. Francis Ngannou

6. Junior dos Santos

7. Ben Rothwell

8. Mark Hunt

9. Derrick Lewis

10. Travis Browne (+1)

11. Stefan Struve (+1)

12. Marcin Tybura (+2)

13. Curtis Blaydes

14. Alexander Volkov (+1)

15. Vitaly Minakov

Two ranked heavyweights squared off this past weekend, and Marcin Tybura managed to hand Andrei Arlovski his fifth straight loss. It wasn’t the prettiest fight so I’m not going to move Tybura up too much, but at this point, Arlovski looks done. I’ve decided to drop him from the heavyweight rankings and I’ve replaced him with undefeated Russian heavyweight Vitaly Minakov.


1. Tyron Woodley

2. Demian Maia

3. Stephen Thompson

4. Robbie Lawler

5. Rory MacDonald

6. Ben Askren

7. Jorge Masvidal

8. Carlos Condit

9. Donald Cerrone (+1)

10. Gunnar Nelson (+1)

11. Kamaru Usman (+1)

12. Colby Covington (+2)

13. Neil Magny

14. Dong Hyun Kim (-5)

15. Douglas Lima

Colby Covington did exactly what he needed to do this past weekend with his dominant showcase against Dong Hyun Kim. He repeatedly pressued Kim, worked for takedowns and even found some success on the feet, hurting Kim at one point. Kim is still dangerous, but he’s going to get outgrappled by the better wrestlers and BJJ players in this division and outstruck by the best strikers so I’m dropping him several spots.


1. Demetrious Johnson

2. Joseph Benavidez

3. Kyoji Horiguchi

4. Henry Cejudo

5. Ray Borg

6. Wilson Reis

7. Jussier Formiga

8. Ben Nguyen

9. Tim Elliott

10. Ulka Sasaki (NR)

11. Justin Scoggins (NR)

12. Ali Bagautinov (-2)

13. Brandon Moreno (-2)

14. Sergio Pettis (-2)

15. Ian McCall (-2)

Ulka Sasaki makes a huge leap in the rankings after not just beating Justin Scoggins, but finishing him with a beautiful rear-naked choke. Scoggins was a Top 10 fighter at flyweight before leaving the division to move to bantamweight, so I’m returning him to a solid ranking at 125 now that he’s back.
