Former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza climbed to No. 6 in the latest official UFC middleweight rankings, which were released on Monday.

Souza, who submitted Chris Camozzi in the first round in Brazil, improved two slots after his Octagon debut.

The event featured only a handful of ranked fighters, as Nik Lentz and John Lineker each moved up, as well.

Luke Rockhold, who was defeated by Vitor Belfort in the main event, fell twice spots to No. 7 in the middleweight Top-10.
