UFC rankings updated following UFC Fight Night 113 – The return of Jon Jones

The UFC rankings have been updated following the UFC Fight Night 113 event that took place over the weekend.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ suspension is now up and has been placed back on the rankings as the #1 light heavyweight contender. Jones is set to face champion Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 214. Jones also was placed at #7 on the pound-for-pound rankings.

Former welterweight contender Kelvin Gastelum who is now fighting in the middleweight division is also a newly ranked fighter at 185. Gastelum, who is scheduled to fight former UFC middleweight champion, Chris Weidman this Saturday in the UFC on FOX 25 main event is sitting at #8.

Santiago Ponzinibbio and Cynthia Calvillo both coincidentally jumped up six spots to the #8 position in their respective divisions with their big wins over the weekend. Ponzinibbio upset Gunnar Nelson in the main event of the evening scoring a controversial KO win in the first round after an accidental eye-poke while Calvillo took a unanimous decision win over Joanne Calderwood.
