Former UFC featherweight title challenger Chad Mendes made a triumphant return to the Octagon recently, and that has resulted in “Money” heading back into the Top-10 of the latest UFC rankings.
Mendes is currently ranked seventh in the division after being taken out due to a failed drug test.
Alexander Volkanovski also entered the Top-15, as he is 11th. Darren Elkins fell three spots in the division.
Liz Carmouche, who challenged Ronda Rousey for the bantamweight title years ago, moved up three spots to No. 4 in the female flyweight division.
The rankings will be updated once more next week after Sunday’s UFC card.
