UFC on FOX 23 left us with a number of great performances. Two of the most notable ones were impressive TKO victories for both heavyweight Francis Ngannou and welterweight Jorge Masvidal. Their efforts earned each of them a bonus of $50,000 dollars for performance of the night.
In addition to that, both fighters took a giant leap in the UFC rankings of their respective divisions. Other fighters like Raphael Assuncao or Valentina Shevchenko just solidified their positions. What will be more interesting is to see what the future holds for each of them.
On the other hand, the losers who were more affected by the adjustments in the rankings were obviously Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone who despite fighting as a welterweight even lost a spot in the lightweight division as well. Julianna Pena went down a couple spots and somehow made Ronda Rousey go up to number 3 in a very stacked and competitive women’s bantamweight division.
