UFC rankings updated after UFC Fight Night 69: Watch out for Tatsuya Kawajiri!

Not much has changed since the UFC Fight Night 69 event went down last Saturday (June 20, 2015) inside O2 World Arena in Berlin, Germany (results here). Joanna Jedrzejczyk is still the strawweight champion after brutalizing Jessica Penne (pic) and Peter Sobotta is still unranked.

But watch out for that Tatsuya Kawajiri!

The 145-pound “Crusher” made some big moves in the official UFC rankings thanks to last weekend’s unanimous decision win over hometown favorite Dennis Siver on UFC Fight Pass (more on that here).

That’s not all.
