We have a UFC rankings update following this past weekend’s (Sat. June 8, 2019) UFC 238 pay-per-view (PPV) in Chicago.

Henry Cejudo captured the vacant bantamweight championship by defeating Marlon Moraes in the main event. He now reigns as the UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion of the world. However, he remains the No. 4-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

However, one champion who did move up the pound-for-pound rankings is women’s flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko. “The Bullet” defeated Jessica Eye to successfully retain her title in the co-main event of UFC 238. Currently, she’s preparing for a quick turnaround to defend her title again next month. Now, she moves past former 170-pound champion Tyron Woodley on the pound-for-pound list to No. 13.
