As always, the UFC rankings have been updated and the most notable change involved newly minted UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway.

Holloway scored the biggest victory of his career last weekend (June 3, 2017), stopping Jose Aldo in the third round of their UFC 212 main event to become the undisputed 145-pound champion. The win marked the 11th consecutive victory for the 25-year-old Holloway and he now sits at No. 5 on the pound-for-pound list.

Aldo, on the other hand, dropped to No. 10 on the pound-for-pound list after suffering his second stoppage loss in his last three bouts.
