Two UFC events took place over the weekend as UFC Fight Night 99 took place in Belfast, Ireland while UFC Fight Night 100 went down in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

With the two events, the UFC rankings have been updated to reflect the fights having an impact on the top 15 ranked fighters throughout the UFC weight classes.

Some notable changes include Krzysztof Jotko jumping up four spots to #11 in the middleweight division with his win over Thales Leites at UFC 100 while an inactive Rashad Evans dropped six spots in the light heavyweight division as his plans to fight at middleweight get sorted out with fight licensing.

Check out the full UFC rankings below.
