With win over Faber, Edgar enters pound-for-pound rankings

The UFC updated their rankings following this weekend’s UFC Fight Night event in the Philippines. Frankie Edgar (19-4) is now on a four-fight winning streak after defeating Urijah Faber in a five round war. Edgar, the former UFC lightweight champion not only put himself next in line for a potential featherweight title shot against the winner of Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor, he also made it to the UFC top 15 pound-for-pound rankings.

Entering UFC Fight Night’s main event against Faber, Edgar was not ranked in the pound-for-pound rankings. The win has notched him now at #14. In the featherweight rankings, Edgar still sits at number two, behind number one ranked Chad Mendes, who won over Ricardo Lamas on April 4th’s UFC Fight Night event.

The top 15 pound-for-pound rankings now looks like this:

POUND-FOR-POUND
1    Jose Aldo
2    Demetrious Johnson
3    Chris Weidman
4    Cain Velasquez (+1)
5    Ronda Rousey (-1)
6    TJ Dillashaw
7    Rafael dos Anjos
8    Robbie Lawler
