“UFC on FOX 16” is in the books and a couple fighters from the main card made some big moves! Miesha Tate’s co main-event performance against Jessica Eye earned her the top-spot directly under Ronda Rousey, once again. Jesssica Eye dropped a single spot due to the loss, however.

TJ Dillashaw surpassed UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum in the pound-for-pound rankings. Anderson Silva, Conor McGregor and Frankie Edgar all moved up one spot because of the former bantamweight champion Renan Barao’s removal of the same rankings

Rose Namajunas continues to sneak her way up the rankings, now ranked third in her division despite not winning a fight since early 2013.
