No major mixed martial arts this past week meant no changes across the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings, but that’s sure to change after this week with bantamweight taking center stage in a pair of main events. On Friday at Bellator 272, Sergio Pettis will put his 135-pound title on the line against Kyoji Horiguchi . Then on Saturday at UFC on ESPN 31, Rob Font and Jose Aldo square off in a pivotal bout at the top of the division.
