While there wasn’t much ranked action this past week, he Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale’s main event slightly shook up the lightweight rankings. MMA Oddsbreaker’s Brian Hemminger (@BrianHemminger) and Jason Nawara (@JasonNawara) have taken over the reigns of the rankings, which will now be updated after every UFC event. One extra wrinkle this week is the inclusion of the Women’s Bantamweight rankings. We’ll be adding more divisions to our rankings as UFC continues to build up new weight classes. Disagree? Feel free to give us your take on our rankings either in the comment section here or on Twitter! Lightweight 1. Anthony Pettis 2. Gilbert Melendez 3. Benson Henderson 4. T.J. Grant 5. Josh Thomson 6. Rafael Dos Anjos 7. Eddie Alvarez 8. Michael Chandler 9. Nate Diaz (NR) 10. Khabib Nurmagomedov Nate Diaz was just on the outskirts of our last top 10, but with his first round TKO of former number nine-ranked Gray Maynard was more than enough to return the Stockton native back to the top 10 where he belongs. Diaz capped off his “trilogy” with Maynard in style, clipping him standing before unloading a barrage of strikes on a reeling Maynard to put the former two-time title challenger down. Women’s Bantamweight 1. Ronda Rousey 2. Cat Zingano 3. Alexis Davis 4. SaraMcMann 5. Jessica Eye 6. Miesha Tate 7. Sarah Kaufman 8. Lauren Murphy 9. Amanda Nunes 10.
