It was to be expected that Comnor McGregor would slip in the rankings after his loss to Nate Diaz at Saturday's UFC 196. It was no surprise, when the ranking were released, that he dropped close to 5 spots on the list.

In the bantamweight women's division, Ronda Rousey fell to number 2, making Holly Holm number 1... All because Miesha Tate is the new champion.

Here's a list of the movements in ranking in each division:

POUND-FOR-POUND

  • 3 Luke Rockhold (moved up 2 positions)
  • 4 Fabricio Werdum (moved up 1 position)
  • 6 Rafael Dos Anjos (moved up 1 position)
  • 7 Robbie Lawler (moved up 1 position)
  • 8 Conor McGregor (dropped 5 positions)
  • 12 Frankie Edgar (moved up 2 positions)
  • 13 TJ Dillashaw (dropped 1 position)
  • 14 Joanna Jedrzejczyk (moved up 1 position)
  • 15 Miesha Tate (Not Previously Ranked)

FLYWEIGHT

  • 2 Henry Cejudo (moved up 1 position)
  • 3 John Dodson (dropped 1 position)

FEATHERWEIGHT

NO CHANGES

LIGHTWEIGHT

  • 11 Al Iaquinta (dopped 1 position)

WELTERWEIGHT

  • 14 Albert Tumenov (moved up 1 position)
  • 15 Thiago Alves (dropped 1 position)

MIDDLEWEIGHT

NO CHANGES

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

  • 13 Ilir Latifi (Not Previously Ranked)
  • 14 Nikita Krylov (moved up 1 position)
  • 15 Gian Villante (dropped 2 positions)

HEAVYWEIGHT

  • 15 Alexey Oliynyk (dropped 1 position)

WOMEN'S STRAWWEIGHT

NO CHANGES

WOMEN'S BANTAMWEIGHT

  • Champion: Miesha Tate (NEW CHAMPION)
  • 1 Holly Holm (dropped 1 position)
  • 2 Ronda Rousey (dropped 1 position)
  • 10 Sarah Kaufman (moved up 1 position)
  • 11 Valentina Shevchenko (dropped 1 position)

It's safe to say that these standing will change later this month after UFC Fight Night 85: Hunt vs. Mir takes place. The biggest movements should take place in the heavyweight division.
