Latest rankings after UFC 184: Holly Holm cracks Top 10, Anderson Silva continues to tumble

New, 39 comments

And fortunately for Cat Zingano, she is still considered the next best women's bantamweight after Ronda Rousey despite her quick loss to "Rowdy."

The official Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rankings have been updated following UFC 184, which went down this past weekend (Sat., Feb. 28, 2015) inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Holly Holm made the biggest jump of the week, as she cracked the top 10 after defeating Raquel Pennington via split decision in the co-main event (video highlights). With a few more wins, "The Preacher's Daughter" could continue to raise her stock and ranking and set herself up nicely for a shot at the title.

Despite her 16-second loss to Ronda Rousey in the night's headliner (see it again here), Cat Zingano didn't lose her spot as the No. 1 fighter in the division next to the champ.

In other movement, Mark Munoz was bounced out of the Top 15 after getting choked out by Roan Carneiro (recap), who debuted on the list after his impressive victory over "The Filipino Wrecking Machine."

Also, former UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva continues his fall from grace and the rankings, dropping down three spots to No. 5.
