UFC champions Demetrious Johnson and Ronda Rousey each were the beneficiaries of Renan Barao’s removal from UFC 177, climbing in the pound-for-pound UFC rankings.
Johnson, the flyweight champion, moved to a tie for fourth with Chris Weidman, while Rousey – the women’s bantamweight champion – is No. 8.
There was little movement elsewhere, as Glover Teixeira is now tied for third with Rashad Evans at light heavyweight, while Dan Henderson passed Ryan Bader for seventh.
In the middleweight division, Tim Boetsch and Mark Munoz flipped for 13th, while Bethe Correia moved into ninth in the female bantamweight Top-10.
Eddie Wineland and Takeya Mizugaki switched positions in the bantamweight division, as did Johnny Eduardo and Bryan Caraway.
