Sean O’Malley, who has talked a good game for his entire UFC run, proved his worthiness of being considered among the elite at bantamweight with his UFC 280 victory over former champion Petr Yan last weekend.

As a result, “Suga Sean” enters the men’s top-10 in the latest ESPN divisional rankings and soars up toward the top.

There is rankings upheaval in some other weight classes as well.

At lightweight, newly crowned champion Islam Makhachev takes over the No. 1 spot, and another 155-pounder who had an impressive win at UFC 280, Beneil Dariush, also moves up.

And at women’s flyweight, Manon Fiorot climbs a few spots after her win at UFC 280.
