The UFC’s return to Texas saw some great action in the cage, and the main event produced a new featherweight contender. Josh Emmett’s slim split decision win over Calvin Kattar cemented him at the top of the 145-pound division, putting him in the top four of the class in the official UFC rankings.

Other than that though, not a lot happened rankings-wise. Adrian Yanez is now in bantamweight after taking out Tony Kelley and making some bounty money in the process. And that’s about it.

Here’s a look at all the changes this week.

Welterweight – No changes.
