Daniel Cormier’s decision loss to Jon Jones recently has dropped him from the UFC pound-for-pound Top-15, opening the door for Alexander Gustafsson to slide in.
Gustafsson, who can secure his rematch with Jones later this month, is 15th. Vitor Belfort also moved up one spot.
In the divisional rankings, Kyoji Horiguchi’s victory over Louis Gaudinot vaulted him up three spots to No. 8 at flyweight.
UFC 182 winners Donald Cerrone and Hector Lombard each climbed one position each, as Cerrone is now third at lightweight and Lombard fifth at welterweight.
Charles Oliveira, Heather Clark and Seohee Ham were others who moved up, while Paige VanZant, Bec Rawlings, Dennis Siver, Gilbert Melendez, Matt Brown, Chris Cariaso, Zach Makovsky, Tim Elliott and Chico Camus each fell a position.
