There were some pretty significant shifts in the rankings following this past Saturday's UFC event. Considering Chael Sonnen wasn't ranked to begin with in the Light-heavyweight division and Jon Jones was already the champion, neither fighter moved at all.

There was however a serious shake up in the Lightweight division. With Josh Thompson delivering Nate Diaz his first career knockout he shoots himself up 4 spots to #4 in the Lightweight rankings, whil Diaz dropped to #7.

While I agree with Thompson moving up I disagree with Diaz being ranked below fighters like Donald Cerrone and TJ Grant, especially when he just recently defeated Cerrone prior to his loss and has accomplished much more than Grant especially when considering he just went 5 rounds with the current Lightweight champion.

Some other notably significant shifts were Jim Miller dropping 4 spots to #8 while Pat Healy who was previously unranked breaks into the top 10 with a spot at #9. With his win over Cheick Kongo, Roy Nelson moves up to tie for 5th place with Alistair Overeem in the Heavyweight division rankings.

And in the womens Bantamweight division Sara McMann moves up two spots to #4 while Liz Carmouche, Alexis Davis, Germaine de Randamie and Sheila Gaff all drop 1 spot to #5, #6, #9 and #10 respectively.
