UFC Rankings Officially Add Female Flyweight Division

The UFC rankings have another division, as female flyweights have been added.

Nicco Montano, who won the inaugural title with a victory over Roxanne Modafferi, sits atop the rankings. Sijara Eubanks, who advanced to the finals only to be replaced by Modafferi after issues cutting weight, is viewed as the No. 1 contender.

Following Eubanks is Lauren Murphy, Modafferi, Barb Honchak and Montana De La Rosa.

The recent season of The Ultimate Fighter featured 16 flyweights competing to become the first-ever champion. At the show finale, Murphy bested Honchak.

In other ranking news, Francis Ngannou climbed three spots to No. 1 behind heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, Eddie Alvarez and Jussier Formiga each moved up one spot in their respective divisions, and Brett Johns, Francisco Trinaldo and Yancy Mendeiros all debuted in the Top-15.
