The official update in UFC rankings have been announced following last weekend’s UFC Fight Island 4 event, and there have been quite a few changes as usual, including a surprising change in the men's pound for pound list.

The most notable changes have been that of former UFC women's bantamweight champ Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie as both fighters climbed up the women’s pound-for-pound rankings list after picking up impressive victories on the female-dominated card. In the main event of UFC Fight Island 4, Holly Holm outclassed Irene Aldana over five rounds to pick up a lopsided unanimous decision win while de Randamie submitted Julianna Pena in their main card scrap earlier that night.

There has been another interesting change on the men’s pound-for-pound list, as interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje moved past his former opponent Dustin Poirier.
