UFC rankings update: Cynthia Calvillo, Marvin Vettori make huge climbs

Cynthia Calvillo, UFC on ESPN 10, UFC rankings

The official UFC rankings have been updated after last weekend’s under-the-radar UFC on ESPN 10 card, and as expected, there have been some big changes.

Most notably, former UFC strawweight contender Cynthia Calvillo made a gargantuan climb up the flyweight rankings after defeating the division’s No. 1 contender, Jessica Eye, in the cards main event. She’s now ranked No. 2 in the division, behind former title challenger Katlyn Chookagian.

Marvin Vettori, who choked out Karl Roberson in the UFC on ESPN 10 co-main event, also made a big climb up the middleweight rankings, debuting at No. 14.
