UFC Rankings: Lyoto Machida Shoots Into Middleweight Top-5

Lyoto Machida jumped to fifth in the UFC’s latest official rankings in the middleweight division following his finish of Mark Munoz.

Machida, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, remained 10th at 205 pounds. He is expected to continue fighting at middleweight for the time being.

His moves effected fighters in both divisions, as several climbed a spot at light heavyweight.

The only other change came in the female bantamweight rankings, as Jessica Andrade debuted at No. 10.
