The official Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rankings have been updated following UFC 186, which went down this past weekend (Sat., April 25, 2015) from inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

After making his successful return to the Octagon by defeating Fabio Maldonado in the co-main event of the evening (video replay here), Quinton Jackson found himself back in the top 15, falling just shy of the top 10 as he landed at No. 11.

The panelists decision to rank "Rampage" so high came at the expense of Dan Henderson, who was bounced from the list altogether in order to make room for his former PRIDE FC stablemate. Also on the card, Michael Bisping got back into the win column by outscoring C.B. Dolloway in a pivotal middleweight bout (see it).

The win was good enough to move "The Count" up to No. 9.

And interestingly enough, after getting shafted in last week's rankings following his impressive victory over Cub Swanson, Max Holloway got a boost up to No. 5, surpassing the very man he submitted in New Jersey.

Here's what the entire ranking field looks like courtesy of UFC.com. Note: (+/- = movement in rankings, *NR = Not previously ranked).

Interesting.

You can expect these standings to change -- especially in the heavyweight division -- when UFC Fight Night 65 goes down on May 9, 2015 inside Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
