UFC Rankings: Kelvin Gastelum Down Three Places

The UFC rankings took a bit of a shake up this past weekend at UFC 183, as the lightweight and welterweight division had some pivotal pairings. Al Iaquinta battled long-time 155-pound stand out Joe Lauzon on the evening’s PPV (pay-per-view) main card, and made a huge impression with his second round TKO.

So much so, that “raging” has now hopped up to the number 15 spot. Thiago Alves debuts in the UFC rankings too, but he hopped up to the number 13 position with his impressive comeback knockout against Jordan Mein. “Young Guns” was blasting the Brazilian banger throughout round one, but “Pitbull” rallied with a one-and-done kick to the bread basket to get the finish in round two.
