Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida vaulted to fifth in the latest UFC rankings in the middleweight division.
Machida, who finished Mark Munoz in the first round recently with a head-kick, did drop to No. 10 at 205 pounds. “The Dragon” is expected to remain at 185 for the time being.
Munoz fell two spots, as did Francis Carmont and Costa Philippou. At light heavyweight, Dan Henderson, Chael Sonnen, Gegard Mousasi and Mauricio Rua all benefited from Machida’s fall, moving up a slot each.
The only other change was in the bantamweight division, as Jessica Andrade moved in at No. 10.
