MMAOddsBreaker Rankings Update (CMigrator copy 17)

ospWith UFC Fight Night 55, UFC Fight Night 56 and The Ultimate Fighter season 20 taking place these past few weeks, the MMAOddsBreaker rankings were bound to get shaken up. MMA Oddsbreaker’s Brian Hemminger (@BrianHemminger) and Brad Taschuk (@BradTaschuk) have taken over the reigns of the rankings, which are updated after nearly every UFC event. As always, we only show changes in the rankings with this update. To access the full MMAOddsBreaker rankings, click here. Disagree?

1. Jon Jones 2. Alexander Gustafsson 3. Daniel Cormier 4. Anthony Johnson 5. Rashad Evans 6. Phil Davis (+1) 7. Glover Texeira (-1) 8. Ryan Bader (+1) 9. Dan Henderson (+1) 10. Ovince St. Preux (NR) 11. Emanuel Newton (-3) 12. Rafael Cavalcante 13. Quinton Jackson 14. Jan Blachowicz  15. Jimi Manuwa
Ovince St. Preux soars into our rankings, bouncing back in a big way from his loss to Ryan Bader by thrashing MMA legend Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in less than a minute. We also never updated Phil Davis for defeating Glover Texeira via unanimous decision at UFC 179 so he gets a slight boost. Last but not least, even though he was victorious in his Bellator title defense, Emanuel Newton has not impressed in his last two fights and dropped a few spots in the rankings.
Middleweight 1. Chris Weidman 2. Anderson Silva 3. Vitor Belfort 4. Jacare Souza 5. Lyoto Machida 6. Luke Rockhold 7. Yoel Romero 8. Yushin Okami 9. Tim Kennedy 10. Gegard Mousasi 11. CB Dollaway (+1) 12. Thales Leites (+1) 13. Costa Philippou (+1) 14. Mark Munoz (+1) 15. Michael Bisping (-4) Nothing crazy here. We just dropped Michael Bisping four spots for his decisive loss to Luke Rockhold this past weekend in the main event of UFC Fight Night 55. It was expected that Bisping would be defeated, but not many predicted how dominant Rockhold would truly be. Flyweight

1. Demetrious Johnson 2. John Dodson 3. Joseph Benavidez 4. Ian McCall 5. Jussier Formiga 6. Ali Bagautinov 7. Kyoji Horiguchi 8. John Lineker 9. Zach Makovsky 10. Dustin Ortiz 11. John Moraga 12. Ray Borg 13. Chris Cariaso 14. Justin Scoggins 15. Wilson Reis (NR) Wilson Reis makes his flyweight rankings debut for his victory over Scott Jorgensen at UFC 179 last month. He’s now 2-0 since dropping to 125 pounds and while his chin will always be a question mark, he’s at least getting results at the new weight class. Women’s Strawweight 1. Jessica Aguilar 2. Claudia Gadelha 3. Carla Esparza 4. Ayaka Hamasaki 5. Joanne Calderwood 6. Joanna Jedrzejczyk 7. Karolina Kowalkiewicz (NR) 8. Tecia Torres 9. Mizuki Inoue (-2) 10. Katja Kankaanpaa (-1) 11. Jessica Penne (-1) 12. Stephanie Eggink (-1) 13. Randa Markos (-1) 14. Bec Rawlings (Hyatt) 15. Rose Namajunas Karolina Kowalkiewicz  makes a big splash in the women’s 115 pound rankings after scoring an upset over previously #7 ranked Mizuki Inoue at Invicta FC 9 a week and a half ago. Look for her to battle Katja Kankaanpaa for the Invicta strawweight title sometime in early 2015 before she’s brought over to the UFC women’s strawweight division as an instant contender.
