ufc rankings

Stephen Thompson was the biggest winner over the weekend, and now, “Wonderboy” can see just how much.

Thompson moved up to third in the latest UFC rankings for the welterweight division following his first round finish of Johny Hendricks. He is now seated right behind former title contender Rory MacDonald and the expected next title challenger to Robbie Lawler, Tyron Woodley.

Anderson Silva, despite not competing since last January, climbed three more spots to seventh in the middleweight rankings. Silva returns later this month against Michael Bisping.

Ben Rothwell is now ranked fourth at heavyweight, while Justin Scoggins debuted at No. 12 in the flyweight rankings.

Rafael dos Anjos, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, is now fourth in the pound-for-pound Top-15, one spot behind future challenger Conor McGregor.
