UFC Rankings Released

Nate Diaz

Despite knocking out Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem still finds his name behind that of the former champion in the latest UFC rankings.

Overeem did climb four spots to No. 5, one position behind dos Santos. Andrei Arlovski also benefited from the dos Santos loss, moving up to second.

Nate Diaz made the biggest climb of the week, vaulting seven spots to No. 8 at lightweight after besting Michael Johnson. Khabib Nurmagomedov slipped ahead of Donald Cerrone for second.

Paige VanZant and Joanne Calderwood moved up a spot each at strawweight, while Karolina Kowalkiewicz debuted at No. 12.

There was also plenty of movement in the overall Top-15, as Rafael dos Anjos is now eighth, while Daniel Cormier dropped to 10th.
