Eddie Alvarez

Fresh off reclaiming the bantamweight belt, Dominick Cruz finds himself ranked ninth in the latest UFC pound-for-pound Top-15.

Cruz, who bested T.J. Dillashaw over the weekend, joins a Top-10 that features all champions except No. 1 Jon Jones and eighth-ranked Jose Aldo.

Dillashaw fell to 12th overall.

There is also a new No. 1 contender in the lightweight division, as Eddie Alvarez jumped three spots after defeating Anthony Pettis. Alvarez has now scored back-to-back decisions over Pettis and Gilbert Melendez.

The former Bellator champion moved ahead of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Pettis and Donald Cerrone.
