Michael Johnson Nearly Breaks Into UFC’s Top-10 At 155

Fresh off his victory over Melvin Guillard, Michael Johnson has found his way to the cusp of the Top-10 in the UFC’s official lightweight rankings.

All of the rankings were updated following UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa this past Saturday. Another new edition will also come out next week after UFC 171.

Johnson, who scored a decision victory in the co-main event, moved up three spots to No. 11 at 155 pounds. He passed Edson Barboza, Bobby Green and Rustam Khabilov.

Brad Pickett, who debuted at flyweight, moved into the 125-pound rankings at 11, while Erik Perez and others were the beneficiaries of Pickett leaving the bantamweight rankings.
