May 18, 2017 1:24 pm by Russell Ess

UFC 211 saw some great fights go down at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas over the weekend. With some top ranked fighters competing on the card, the UFC rankings have been freshly updated.

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defended his belt for the second time, stopping Junior dos Santos in the first round by TKO. Miocic climbed up a spot in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings to the #5 spot.

Demian Maia established himself as the #1 contender in the welterweight division with his split decision victory over Jorge Masvidal and is likely going to fight Tyron Woodley for the belt next.

Get the full report from former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate as she joins Forrest Griffin and Matt Parrino as they break down the latest UFC rankings update in the video above.
