Michael Bisping

Michael Bisping and Thales Leites clashed in the main event of UFC Fight Night 72. Even though Bisping came out on top, his ranking in the middleweight division did not change at all as he remained at #9.

Anderson Silva continues to drop in the pound for pound rankings, this week dropping TWO spots to #13. Anthony Pettis hopped over Renan Barao to replace “The Spider” at #11.

Formerly #9, Josh Thomson dropped out of the top ten to #11 with his loss to Tony Ferguson. The two swapped places as Ferguson is now ranked #9.
