Michael Chiesa Among Biggest Movers In Latest UFC Rankings

ufc rankings

Michael Chiesa climbed five positions and Raquel Pennington three after their latest wins in the UFC rankings.

Chiesa, who submitted Beneil Dariush, is now ranked ninth at lightweight; Pennington, who defeated former title contender Bethe Correia via decision, is ninth at bantamweight.

John Dodson debuted at No. 10 in the male bantamweight rankings after departing the flyweight division where he was a two-time title contender. That allowed Ben Nguyen to debut and everyone outside of Joseph Benavidez and Henry Cejudo to move up a spot each.

Khabib Nurmagomedov reclaimed his position as No. 1 contender at lightweight after returning and defeating Darrell Horcher.

Glover Teixeira is now ranked third following his victory over former champion Rashad Evans.
