Chris Weidman vs. Kelvin Gastelum

Former welterweight contender Kelvin Gastelum who is now fighting in the middleweight division is also a newly ranked fighter at 185. Gastelum, who is scheduled to fight former UFC middleweight champion, Chris Weidman this Saturday in the UFC on FOX 25 main event is sitting at #8.

Santiago Ponzinibbio and Cynthia Calvillo both coincidentally jumped up six spots to the #8 position in their respective divisions with their big wins over the weekend.
