MMA Rankings: Cruz, Alvarez make big moves after wins in Boston

Dominick Cruz is back.

Not only did the former Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight champion reclaim his belt with a split decision victory over T.J. Dillashaw on Sunday night in Boston, but Cruz is back in the pound-for-pound rankings as well.

Dillashaw fell just one spot in the division, but was bumped out of the pound-for-pound list with the loss.

There was also a big shakeup in the lightweight division where Eddie Alvarez surged up the charts with a split decision win over Anthony Pettis on Sunday

Stay tuned each Monday for the latest updates and keep in mind, while the ranked weight classes are those used by the UFC, fighters competing outside the organization are eligible.
