There have been big changes to the UFC’s official contender rankings following this past Saturday’s UFC Vegas 64 event.
Amanda Lemos picked up a big win in the UFC Vegas 64 main event this past Saturday night, defeating Marina Rodriguez by way of a third-round TKO.
The win has seen Lemos move up four spots in the UFC’s official strawweight contender rankings to the number three position. Rodriguez moves down to number five. Meanwhile, the last woman to have beaten Lemos, Jessica Andrade, sits at the number-four spot.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who retired from the sport earlier this year, has re-entered the rankings at number fifteen. The move is unusual, especially for a fighter who is no longer a part of the active roster. The most likely scenario is that this is some sort of mistake and will be corrected in next week’s update. However, fans on social media have begun to speculate about a potential comeback.
Take a look at the UFC’s official strawweight rankings below – as of Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
