UFC rankings updated following UFC 211 – Thompson and Lawler drop down a spot

UFC 211 saw some great fights go down at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas over the weekend.

With some top ranked fighters competing on the card, the UFC rankings have been freshly updated.

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defended his belt for the second time, stopping Junior dos Santos in the first round by TKO. Miocic climbed up a spot in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings to the #5 spot.

Demian Maia established himself as the #1 contender in the welterweight division with his split decision victory over Jorge Masvidal and is likely going to fight Tyron Woodley for the belt next.
