UFC’s Latest Rankings See Change At Bantamweight, Lightweight

The second set of “official” UFC rankings have been released, and there is little change among the top spots in the majority of the weight classes.

However, the lightweight ranks did see quite a bit of movement, as did bantamweight.

Gilbert Melendez, the former Strikeforce lightweight champion, moved to the No. 1 spot at 155 behind champ Benson Henderson. The two will meet later this year for Henderson’s title.

Anthony Pettis, who is set to challenge UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, is No. 2 at 155, followed by Gray Maynard.

At bantamweight, Urijah Faber passed Michael McDonald for the second spot in the rankings behind champs Dominick Cruz and Renan Barao. Barao moved into the overall Top-10, replacing Frankie Edgar.
