There was a changing of the guard in the welterweight division this past Saturday, and that means a shake-up in the rankings. Tyron Woodley upset champ Robbie Lawler with a first-round knockout at UFC 201 to win the welterweight title, and that meant a bit jump for Woodley up to No. 1 – and a tumble for Lawler down to No. 3, where he now sits behind Stephen Thompson. In the UFC 201 co-main event, Karolina Kowalkiewicz took a split decision from Rose Namajunas, which meant a move up in the women’s strawweight rankings. Check out those moves and more in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA rankings above
