Jon Jones Returns To Rankings

Ronda Rousey

The latest UFC rankings featured the return of Jon Jones, as the former light heavyweight champion is now ranked fifth in the pound-for-pound Top-15.

Jones, who had his suspension recently lifted, is expected to face Daniel Cormier in early 2016 for the title. He also moved back in and is ranked No. 1 at 205 pounds before Cormier.

Ronda Rousey, who lost the female bantamweight belt to Holly Holm over the weekend, fell to 11th overall – dropping seven spots. Holm debuted in the P4P rankings at No. 13.

The other big mover was Robert Whittaker who jumped five spots to No. 9 at middleweight after defeating Uriah Hall.

Despite her loss to strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Valerie Letourneau moved up two spots to sixth.

Jared Rosholt (heavyweight) and Gian Villante (light heavyweight) debuted in their respective divisions.
