USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings, June 6: Amir Albazi propells upward

The men’s flyweight division is shaken up in this week’s rankings update.

In the main event of UFC on ESPN 45, Amir Albazi picked up a split decision win over former vacant interim title challenger Kai Kara-France. Although it was a close fight, the result caused a number of movements in the flyweight divisional rankings.

Kara-France is on a two-fight skid, and falls from No. 4 to No. 9. Albazi, who remains undefeated in the UFC, improves from No. 10 to No. 7. This means in between such as Askar Askarov, Alexandre Pantoja, and Brandon Royval move up one spot as Kara-France takes a tumble.
