The New York native moved up two spots in the welterweight division in Monday’s official UFC Rankings release. Magny, a winner in 10 of his last 11 fights, is now at No. 7 among 170-pounders. It was the first time Hector Lombard had been finished in a fight, as Magny landed a UFC record 100 ground strikes en-route to a third round TKO.

Results from Saturday had little effect on the rest of the rankings. Main event winner Mark Hunt moves up one spot to No. 8 after his walk-off knockout of Frank Mir, who remains at No. 10.
