Nunes wins

The dust has settled from “UFC Fight Night 73” and the official rankings have been updated! Beneil Dariush and Amanda Nunes are the big winners this week as Darish was able to crack the top ten in his division while Amanda Nunes took the number four spot in the bantamweight division.

Michael Johnson can take a sigh of relief as he did NOT lose his spot in the top five despite taking a controversial loss this past Saturday. Check out the rest of the changes since last week’s official UFC rankings below!
