UFC 286 is in the books, and a lot of the drama surrounding it has more to do with people’s commentary and the presence of Colby Covington than the actual outcome of the fights. Leon Edwards cemented his welterweight reign with a second win over former top P4P fighter Kamaru Usman in the headliner, and Justin Gaethje picked up a big win in the co-main over Rafael Fiziev.
As for the rankings? None of those four moved at all in the their respective divisions, and only Usman’s P4P ranking took a hit.
