USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA rankings, Feb. 13: Welcome to the top 10, Curtis Blaydes

13 February 2018

The Australian crowd may not have approved, but Curtis Blaydes picked up an important win over Mark Hunt in the co-main event of UFC 221.

With the result, “Razor” Blaydes now stands at No. 8 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings, edging just ahead of Hunt.

The middleweight division was impacted by the night’s main event, with Yoel Romero picking up a devastating knockout win over Luke Rockhold, but the undercard saw a few fighters turn in solid performances, making their way into the honorable mentions in their respective divisions, priming themselves top break into the official top-15 list: Australians Tyson Pedro and Alex Volkanovski.

Both the UFC and Bellator host cards this weekend, so expect further movement across the board. Ahead of those clashes, check out the latest rankings across the board.
