Daniel Cormier won the heavyweight championship with a first-round knockout of former titleholder Stipe Miocic to become just the second fighter in UFC history to win championships in two weight classes simultaneously. As a result of his big win and new status as the double-champ, Cormier saw himself rise up the latest UFC fighter rankings which were released this week following UFC 226.

Cormier jumped three spots to take over No. 2-ranked Demetrious Johnson, while featherweight champ Max Holloway also leaped three positions to find himself ranked ahead of Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre.
