Holm makes huge gains in new rankings

The stunning weekend that was UFC 193 has impacted the MMA world in many ways and has delivered a shakeup of the most powerful names in Monday’s official UFC rankings release.

Entering the pound-for-pound charts is the former No. 1 Jon Jones and new women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm.

Jones comes in at No. 5 in the pound-for-pound ranks and becomes the No. 1 light heavyweight contender. "Bones" had successfully defended his light heavyweight belt eight times and was reinstated in the UFC last month after being stripped of his belt in April.

Holm enters the pound-4-pound ranks for the first time at No. 13. She's the first ever UFC women's bantamweight champ not named Ronda Rousey.

Dropping is former bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey from No. 4 in the pound-for-pound ranks to 11th. Rousey also surrenders her top spot in the women's bantamweight ranks for the first time since early 2013. She remains the No. 1 contender.

The other biggest shuffles include bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw climbing one spot to No. 4 in the pound-for-pound rankings and Robert Whittaker moving up five spots to No. 9 among the 185 pounders. Whittaker defeated Uriah Hall – who drops only one spot to No. 11 - by unanimous decision on Saturday in Australia.

Valerie Letourneau, who lost her title fight to Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 193, climbed two spots to No. 6 among strawweights after her spirited effort.
