USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA rankings, Aug. 28: Big leap for Deiveson Figueiredo after UFC Lincoln

The UFC was back in action this past Saturday in Nebraska, and a flyweight made a big statement for a major climb.

On the UFC Fight Night 135 main card at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb., Deiveson Figueiredo (15-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) took out former title challenger John Moraga (19-7 MMA, 8-6 UFC) with a second-round TKO to stay unbeaten, including his first four in the UFC.

And that meant a big climb in the 125-pound rankings for the Brazilian, who was an honorable mention selection heading into the bout. Now he’s in the top 10.

Check out our full list at flyweight and the rest of the rankings above.
