UFC, Bellator, and ONE Championship all had events causing changes in the Oct. 4 edition of the USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings.

The main event of UFC Fight Night 211 saw Yan Xiaonan defeat Mackenzie Dern in a 25-minute clash of styles. Yan entered the contest at No. 9, but her win shakes up the division, claiming Dern’s No.5 position, and bumping her defeated opponent to No. 6.
