The Ultimate Fighting Championship has released its latest rankings, following the promotion’s event in Mexico City this past weekend, as well as its “Rankings Report” to go along with it.

Not surprisingly, the big mover was welterweight Kelvin Gastelum, who put away perennial contender Jake Ellenberger in the first round with a rear-naked-choke. As a result of the impressive win, Gastelum jumped up four spots and now sits at #7. Ellenberger, who has lost three in a row now, dropped fours spots and is sitting at #11.

The UFC’s Matt Parrino and former champ Forrest Griffin go over Gastelum’s move, as well as several other changes in the segment, which you can watch below.

In addition, they discuss whether the winner of this Saturday’s scrap between Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson should advance to face featherweight champ Jose Aldo.
