Prior to Saturday Night, Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson was the UFC’s fifteenth ranked light-heavyweight fighter.

And at the time that was generous. Considering, the former welterweight had yet to fight in the UFC’s 205 pound division.

Fast forward two days beyond his upset victory over Phil Davis, and, Johnson now finds himself inside the UFC’s top 5.

Today, the UFC updated their official rankings and here they are.

Champion: Jon Jones
1. Alexander Gustafsson
2. Rashad Evans +1
3. Glover Teixeira -1
4. Daniel Cormier +1
5. Anthony Johnson +9
6. Dan Henderson
7. Phil Davis -3
8. Mauricio Rua
9. Chael Sonnen -2
10. Ryan Bader -1
11. Jimi Manuwa -1
12. Vitor Belfort +1
13. Rafael Cavalcante -1
14. Ovince Saint Preux -3
15. James Te Huna
