The biggest mover is flyweight Kyoji Horiguchi, who has risen three spots as a result of his decision victory over Louis Gaudinot. The dynamic striker jumped from the #11 place at 125 to #8.
Following his decision loss to light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier has dropped out of the pound-for-pound ranks. The #1 contender at 205, Alexander Gustafsson, is now sitting at #15 in the P4P rankings.
The UFC rankings are determined by a panel of media members following each of the promotion’s events.
