Following this past weekend’s UFC 161 event, the USA TODAY Sports/ MMA light-heavyweight rankings saw some shuffling.

Most of it was the result of Rashad Evans‘ split-decision victory over Dan Henderson in the June 15 pay-per-view event’s headliner. With the win, the former champ bumped up a spot to No. 3. Additionally, with his second straight defeat, Henderson dropped from No. 3 to No. 6.

For a full look at the division, which champ Jon Jones currently rules, check out the video above.
