Just In USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie MMA rankings, March 26: How far did ‘Wonderboy’ tumble? MMA Life

Check out the latest breaking UFC NEWS

In his move to welterweight, former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis pulled off one of the biggest highlights of his career.

Pettis (22-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC) this past Saturday knocked out Stephen Thompson (14-4-1 MMA, 9-4-1 UFC) in the second round for a brutal ending to the UFC on ESPN+ 6 main event at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

And while the welterweight division is too crowded for Pettis to make a leap into the ranks after just one win – especially considering he may toggle back and forth between 170 and 155, his previous home – there was some movement for “Wonderboy” Thompson in the division.

Thompson had to fall a little in the USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie MMA welterweight rankings after UFC Nashville. But how far? Check out the new look of every weight class in the latest edition of our weekly rankings.
