UFC Rankings Update: Brock Lesnar Joins Top 10 HW Ranks
By FCF Staff
It hasn’t taken Brock Lesnar long to move into the UFC’s top ten, heavyweight rankings, after not fighting for nearly five years.
Lesnar worked his way to a unanimous decision win over contender Mark Hunt at UFC 200, and as a result, the pro-wrestling star has moved into the #8 ranking. Hunt, however, has dropped one spot and is now ranked #9.
In other rankings developments, Kelvin Gastelum jumped six spots in the welterweight ranks and is now sitting at #6. Former champ Johny Hendricks, who Gastelum decisioned at UFC 200, dropped to #8.
Eddie Alvarez leaped into the promotion’s pound-for-pound rankings as a result of his stoppage win over now former lightweight champ, Rafael dos Anjos. Alvarez is now ranked #8 in the P4P division. Dos Anjos dropped to #2 in the lightweight ranks. The two fought at UFC FN 90 last Thursday.
