By FCF Staff
Although Ronda Rousey wasn’t in action this weekend at UFC 177, the bantamweight champ has seen her position in the pound-for-pound rankings improve.
Following Saturday’s event, which was preceded by the withdrawal of Renan Barao, Rousey has moved up two spots in the UFC’s P4P rankings and is now #8.
Barao, who had to withdraw from his bout with TJ Dillashaw after incurring complications during his weight cut, has slipped to #9. Welterweight champ Johny Hendricks is now ranked #10.
Joe Soto stepped in for Barao versus Dillashaw, and although he was stopped by the champ in round five, the bantamweight is now ranked #15.
Beth Correia took out Shayna Bazler in the second round at UFC 177, and as a result, the bantamweight has moved from #10 to #9. Jessica Andrade slipped one position and is now #10.
Flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson has also improved his P4P ranking, as the dynamic fighter has risen from #5 to #4 and is tied with Chris Weidman.
The UFC rankings are voted on by a panel of media members following each event.
