UFC Vegas is like 39 late Apex cards – there have been many games in the last stanza, with only nine games left on the card. And the only ranked fighters on the card came in a flyweight fight between Headliner and Matthias Nikolaev and Tim Elliott.
Obviously this does not make the rankings crazy. But Marina Rodriguez’s tough fight against McKenzie Dern pushed her to the top of the Straightweight division, while Nikolaev did enough to maintain her standing with a solid win.
Here’s a look at some of the changes this week.
Men’s P4P – No change.
Heavy weight – Sergei Spivak and Sergei Pavlovich flip-flopped 14 and 15 points.
Light weight – No change.
Medium weight – No change.
Welter Wait – No change.
Lightweight – No change.
Feather feather – No change.
Bantamweight – No change.
Flyweight – Nikolaev raises three seats to eight. Matt Schnell falls from one to nine. Elliott drops two places to 11 from the top ten.
Women’s P4P – For some reason Joanna Jedrzejczyk moves from six to five with Jessica Andrade. Rodriguez enters 12. Juliana Pena falls from one to 13. Yan Xianon falls from one to 14.
Women’s Bantamweight – Pani Kianzad and Julia Avila trade 13 and 14 positions.
Women’s Flyweight – No change.
Women’s stravet – Rodriguez rises two places to four, turns with Dern, who drops to two to six. Xionan also fell from one to five.
