Following Jorge Masvidal’s vicious, knockout win over Darren Till at UFC London, everyone knew he was going to jump up the welterweight ranks. The question was, however, by how much? Well, now we know.
The latest rankings for the UFC have been posted, and Masvidal is now sitting in the #5 spot of the welterweight division. That’s a change of six positions, as prior to UFC London, “Gamebred” was ranked #11.
Till, meanwhile, has dropped four spots from #3 to #7. The British fighter was coming off a submission loss to now-former champ, Tyron Woodley, before facing Till.
Leon Edwards, however, remains where he was before he earned a decision win over Gunnar Nelson on Saturday, as he’s still ranked #10 at welterweight. Nelson dropped one spot from #13 to #14.
Another fighter who made a fair sized leap up the ranks was Dominick Reyes, who is now ranked #5 at 205. Reyes got by fellow contender Volkan Oezdemir at UFC London via split decision. The latter fell one ranking position and is now #7.
