The results from UFC 292 this past weekend have led to some changes in the promotion’s official rankings.
Following his title crowning this past weekend, new UFC Bantamweight Champion Sean O’Malley has a number next to his name on the P4P ladder. "Sugar" has debuted at #8, one place above the defeated Aljamain Sterling, who has dropped three positions. As a result of Sterling’s fall, former champions Charles Oliveira (#6) and Kamaru Usman (#7) have risen a spot each.
The co-main event winner at UFC 292 has also received good news when it comes to the P4P standings. UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Zhang Weili entered the event at #3, behind top flyweights Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko. Courtesy of her dominant title defense opposite powerhouse Amanda Lemos in Boston, Weili has jumped the great Shevchenko to secure #2.
It was a good week to be a Silva at 125 pounds, with both Natália and Karine entering the top 15. The former has replaced Andrea Lee at #13 following her dominant striking display against "KGB," while the latter’s buzzer-beating submission of Maryna Moroz sees her now occupy the final spot in the rankings. That’s left Canada’s Jasmine Jasudavicius without a place.
After losing his crown in the UFC 292 main event, Sterling has slid off the throne and into the #1 position at 135 pounds. As a result, his teammate Merab Dvalishvili now sits at #3. In a move unrelated to Saturday’s card, Chinese prospect Song Yadong has climbed a place to share #7 with Rob Font, who suffered defeat to Cory Sandhagen in Nashville earlier this month.
There was just one adjustment at 155 pounds, with Grant Dawson climbing into the top 10 following a straight switch with Rafael dos Anjos (#11), who recently fell short in a welterweight headliner against Vicente Luque.
At 170 pounds, Ian Machado Garry was the sole climber owing to his decimation of veteran Neil Magny’s lower limbs at UFC 292. The Irishman has narrowly missed out on the top 10, rising two spots to #11. With that, Magny (#12) and Kevin Holland (#13) have experienced one-position drops.
Movement was limited in the 185-pound division this week, but there was a small boost for Roman Dolidze. Ahead of his fight against Derek Brunson at UFC 295 in November, the Georgian has risen one place to share #7 with his upcoming opponent.
Some adjustments have been made at heavyweight following the out-of-form Chris Daukaus’ departure from the promotion. His exit has seen Marcos Rogério de Lima moved up to #14 almost a month on from his setback against Derrick Lewis. With a spot opening up, another Brazilian in the form of Rodrigo Nascimento (#15) has debuted in the rankings.
