Behind a decision win over Zach Makovsky, Jussier Formiga cracked the UFC flyweight Top-5. Rankings were updated following the recent UFC Fight Night 47 event that featured Ryan Bader defeating Ovince St. Preux in the main event.

Formiga jumped John Moraga and Ali Bagautinov – two recent challengers to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson – and into fourth overall. He sits behind John Dodson, Joseph Benavidez and Ian McCall.

Gray Maynard dropped three spots to No. 15 at lightweight after falling to Ross Pearson, who debuts at 14th in the rankings.

The complete rankings will be updated once more next week after two UFC events conclude this Saturday.
