Rafael dos Anjos is now tied with Khabib Nurmagomedov – despite Nurmagomedov holding a convincing decision win over him from earlier this year – in the latest UFC lightweight rankings.

Dos Anjos earned his third straight win since that loss, besting Nate Diaz this past weekend.

Other big movers were Charles Oliveira, who climbed four spots to No. 10 at featherweight, and Matt Mitrione, who moved up to No. 12 at heavyweight.

The rankings also featured female strawweights for the first time, as Carla Esparza recently won the title. Joanna Jedrzejczyk, the expected No. 1 contender, is ranked in that slot.
