Despite the story of highly-respected journalist Ariel Helwani being ludicrously escorted from last weekend’s (Sat., June 4, 2016) UFC 199 and subsequently ‘banned for life’ by the UFC drowning the media landscape, we simply can’t forget about the fights – and it was a memorable night to say the least.

In the main event at The Forum in Inglewood, California, long-time divisional mainstay Michael Bisping shocked the masses and knocked out Luke Rockhold in the very first round to become the undisputed middleweight champion of the world.

A true feel-good story, Bisping completed one of the biggest upsets in recent memory, and as a result has launched himself onto the pound-for-pound list according to the latest rankings update courtesy of UFC.com.

“The Count” now sits at No. 9 after his monumental victory.

Reigning bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz scored an impressive decision victory over bitter rival Urijah Faber in their co-main event trilogy bout. “The Dominator” jumped up a spot to No. 3 on the pound-for-pound list after Rockhold, who previously held that rank, saw a massive drop down to No. 13.
