Alex Pereira new P4P No. 1 over Jon Jones

Following UFC 303 and 2024 PFL 6, the USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings required updating.

A massive shakeup has occurred in the MMA Junkie pound-for-pound rankings following the UFC’s pay-per-view event headlining International Fight Week in Las Vegas.

Alex Pereira knocked out Jiri Prochazka in Round 2 of their light heavyweight title rematch, and as a result, shook up the top of the P4P rankings.

Jon Jones returned to claim the No. 1 P4P spot after winning the heavyweight title in his divisional debut at UFC 285, and held it until now. Due to his incredible performances and high activity, Pereira, a former middleweight champion, swoops in to take the throne after winning his fourth straight fight, all of which were against former light heavyweight champions.

Due to inactivity, Jones falls to No. 3 behind lightweight champion Islam Makhachev.

Also in action at the pay-per-view event, Ian Machado Garry and Macy Chiasson made waves in the rankings with their victorious outings.
