UFC rankings updated after UFC Fight Night 60: Max Holloway cracks top 10, TJ Dillashaw tops Anderson Silva

New, comments

Unfortunately for Ben Henderson, his win over Brandon Thatch in a welterweight scrap didn't help improve his position at lightweight.

The official Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rankings have been updated following UFC Fight Night 60, which went down this past weekend (Sat., Feb. 14, 2015) at 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado.

After outgunning and outscoring Cole Miller in the co-main event (video highlights), Max Holloway made the biggest leap in this week's rankings, as he can now call himself a top-10 featherweight as he claimed the No. 10 spot after previously being ranked No. 13.

As for the night's biggest winner, Ben Henderson, his victory over Brandon Thatch (recap) didn't do much for his position, mostly because the bout was contested at welterweight and "Smooth" normally competes at lightweight.

In other interesting movement, UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw can now says he's one spot better than Anderson Silva on the pound-for-pound list.

Repercussions?
