UFC 230 was a showcase of some top middleweights, with four fights from the division taking place on the main card.
Nobody took advantage of the spotlight quite like Israel Adesanya, who dismantled Derek Brunson en route to a first-round TKO victory. As a result, Adesanya, who is now 4-0 in his first year with the UFC, has shot up five spots to No. 8 in our latest 185-pound rankings.
The shake-up at middleweight didn’t end there, either, With his finish of Chris Weidman, Ronaldo Souza moved past current title challenger Kelvin Gastelum and into the No. 5 spot, staking his claim as the next man in line for a title shot.
