UFC fight rankings: Askarov drops, Arnold Allen rises

The Apex event last weekend was primarily a one-fight event, as is customary for the UFC's Vegas cards, especially after a crowded PPV. Arnold Allen defeated Calvin Kattar in the main event to earn his tenth consecutive victory in the Octagon and maintain his perfect record in the UFC.

And what else? When Askar Askarov requested his release, it was granted, and the rankings for flyweight were slightly altered.

Here are the changes from this last week:

Men’s P4P - Kamaru Usman moves up into a tie for three with Islam Makhachev.

Heavyweight - No changes.

Light Heavyweight - Jimmy Crute is up one to 13. Dustin Jacoby drops two to 15 after dropping a split decision to Khalil Rountree.

Middleweight - No changes.

Welterweight - No changes.

Lightweight - No changes.

Featherweight - Allen is up two spots to four. Josh Emmett is up one to five. The Korean Zombie rises a spot to six. Kattar falls two to seven.

Bantamweight - Petr Yan falls out of a tie for two to take over the third spot on his own.

Flyweight - Askarov was at four, so virtually everyone moved up one spot except Amir Albazi and Sumudaerji. They stayed put at nine and 12 respectively, and were leap-frogged by David Dvorak (up two to six) and Manel Kape (up two to 11).

Women’s P4P - No changes.

Women’s Bantamweight - No changes.

Women’s Flyweight - No changes.

Women’s Strawweight - No changes.
