With the enormous talent pool currently inhabiting the biggest fight promotion on the planet, it’s nearly impossible for a major UFC to take place without a few minor tweeks in mixed martial arts rankings that follow closely behind.
Make sure to check out the all of the FiveOuncesofpain.com Rankings to see what changes UFC 110 has forced.
A few of the most recent changes to the official 5 Oz. rankings include Cain Velasquez taking Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira‘s spot at heavyweight with the AKA trained fighter’s recent beating of the legend, while Nogueira slides to the six spot just behind his friend and training partner, Junior dos Santos.
Nogueira also falls from the 5 Oz. pound-4-pound rankings with the defeat (previously #9).
Two losses in his previous three bouts for Thiago Silva have left room for the undefeated Ryan Bader to take his place at the ten spot at 205 pounds. “Darth” makes his debut on the 5 Oz. light heavyweight rankings with the win over Keith Jardine at UFC 110, his fourth straight in the UFC.
Be sure to check out the middleweight rankings as well to see if and where “The Axe Murderer” may have made his debut.
