There's been quite a few ups and downs in the latest UFC rankings following this weekend's UFC Vegas 8 card held at the Apex facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The biggest winner of the night and surging light heavyweight contender Aleksandar Rakic has now officially broken into the top-5 of the light heavyweight rankings after beating former title challenger Anthony "Lionheart" Smith in the main event.

Apart from Aleksandar Rakic, the other big winner from the night, fight game veteran Neil Magny jumped up the welterweight rankings following his massive short-notice decision victory over former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler, who now languishes at #15 in the rankings following a disappointing loss to Magny in the co-main event of UFC Vegas 8.

Given below are the updated UFC rankings (via MMA Mania):
