As it could not be otherwise, the history UFC 300 had consequences for the ranking pound for pound, which highlights the best fighters today, regardless of weight category. The update carried out in the early hours of this Tuesday (16) has as its main disadvantage Charles of the Bronx, which lost its place in the top-10 of the list after defeat to Arman Tsarukyan.

Charles of the Bronx arrived for the UFC 300 ranked seventh in the weight-for-pound ranking, ahead of current champions such as Alexandre pantoja e Dricus Du Plessis. With the split decision defeat against Arman Tsarukyan, the Brazilian lost four positions and now occupies 11th place.

If Charles was the main loser, who did better in relation to the ranking in the UFC 300 was Max Holloway. With the apotheotic conquest of the BMF belt over Justin gaethje, the former featherweight champion (up to 65,7 kg) rose an incredible six positions and reached eighth place.

One of the main expectations before the update revolved around Alex Poatán, who defended the light heavyweight belt (up to 93 kg) with a knockout over Jamahal hill in the main fight of UFC 300. The Brazilian, however, did not gain positions and remained in fourth place, behind Leon edwards, Jon Jones e Islam makhachev, which tops the list.
