UFC Rankings: Glover Teixeira Makes Big Move With Win Over Anthony Smith
By FCF Staff
The UFC’s latest rankings have been posted and Glover Teixeira is once again, a top-five ranked light-heavyweight.
The longtime contender took on Anthony Smith at UFC Jacksonville last week, and stopped the former title challenger in round five. As a result of the victory, Teixeira has jumped up three spots in the light-heavyweight rankings and is sitting in the #5 spot.
Smith fell two spots and is now #6.
Dan Ige, who received a tightly contested decision win over Edson Barboza at UFC Florida, leaped four spots and is now #11 at featherweight.
Another big mover was lightweight Gregor Gillespie, who moved up three positions and is now #11. The decorated wrestler has not fought, however, since he was KO’d by Kevin Lee last November.
