Latest UFC rankings update: Patrick Cummins shoots into top 10, Bethe Correia tumbles to No. 8 after UFC 190

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently updated its official fighter rankings following the pay-per-view (PPV) action at UFC 190: "Rousey vs. Correia," which took place last Sat. night (Aug. 1, 2015) inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Bethe Correia took a considerable drop in the rankings after her first-round shellacking at the hands of Ronda Rousey (watch it), landing at No. 8 in the top 15. "Rowdy" holds steady as the No. 4 ranked pound-for-pound best fighter in the universe, ahead of fellow bantamweight TJ Dillashaw.

Light heavyweight wrestler Patrick Cummins, meanwhile, can call himself a top-10 UFC fighter, thanks to a third-round technical knockout finish over the free-falling Rafael Cavalcante (recap). And Jessica Aguilar did alright for herself -- at least in the UFC rankings -- despite a high-profile loss to Claudia Gadelha (replay).

That's not all.
