As expected there was a decent amount of shakeup in the official UFC rankings following last Sunday’s (April 10, 2016 UFC Fight Night 86 from the Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia, and the biggest shift was former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos’ move back up the rankings for his dominantly one-sided win over previously rising Ben Rothwell.

For his much-needed statement win, dos Santos moved up from No. 5 to No. 4 in the 265-pound rankings. Andrei Arlovski moved up to No. 5 as a result, and ‘Big’ Ben dropped to No. 6 for his first loss in his last five fights.

Also at heavyweight, monstrous power slugger Derrick Lewis cracked the Top 15 at No. 13 for his first round knockout win over veteran Gabriel Gonzaga. Former champion Frank Mir was also flagged for a potential USADA violation, and it may have played a part in his move down one spot to No. 11, allowing Roy Nelson to claim the No. 10 spot.

In the lighter weight classes, there was somehow a decent number of surprising shifts even though no specific fights caused them to happen in any way. For example, Renan Barao rose two spots in the bantamweight ranks to No. 2 despite the fact that he will move up to featherweight to battle Jeremy Stephens on May 29, moving title contender Urijah Faber and Raphael Assuncao down a spot.

In a similar move, Donald Cerrone rose 3 spots in in the lightweight ranks to No. 6 despite the fact that he will face Patrick Cote at welterweight in the co-main event of the UFC’s Ottawa debut on June 18.

Women’s bantamweight saw a sizeable shakeup for a different reason, as former No. 10-ranked Sarah Kaufman’s removal from the rankings due to her not having a contract caused Valentina Shevchenko, Raquel Pennington, Germaine de Randamie, Lauren Murphy, and Marion Reneau to move up a spot each, while Ashlee Evans-Smith debuted at No. 15 as a result.
