The outcomes at the recent UFC Fight Night 167 event led to many changes in the rankings across many divisions.

Jan Blachowicz jumped up two spots to fourth in the Light Heavyweight rankings on the back off his first-round knockout win over Corey Anderson. The Polish fighter is now set to be the new title contender for Jon Jones' championship.

Daniel Cormier, who has not fought at LHW in almost two years, still finds himself in the LHW listing at the fifth place.

John Dodson and Song Yadong moved up in the bottom half of the Bantamweight division. The men's Flyweight and Featherweight divisions also witnessed minor changes.

The Women's Pound-for-Pound rankings, as well as the Flyweight division, saw a few shifts as well.
