New UFC Rankings Feature Expansion To Top-15

Behind a second straight victory over Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman now finds himself within the Top-5 of the pound-for-pound UFC rankings.

Weidman moved up three spots to No. 5, behind only fellow champions Jon Jones, Jose Aldo, Cain Velasquez and Demetrious Johnson.

Silva dropped to seventh overall, falling four spots.

Thanks to a knockout win over Josh Barnett, Travis Browne moved to third in the heavyweight division. Barnett actually moved up one spot despite his loss.

The latest rankings now include the Top-15 overall in each weight class, an expansion from the Top-10 of previous rankings.
