Big shake up in the 185-pound weight class.

It was to be expected after the UFC 199: "Rockhold vs. Bisping 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which took place last Saturday night (June 4, 2016) inside The Forum in Los Angeles, California (full results here).

You can thank Michael Bisping for that, whose knockout win over Luke Rockhold (watch it) sent the former middleweight champ back down to No. 1. Elsewhere on the card, bantamweight kingpin Dominick Cruz maintained his top spot at 135 pounds by outclassing Urijah Faber (replay), who stands fast at No. 2.

That's not all.
