Top bantamweights across Bellator and UFC were in action this past week, and as a result, they are the focus of this week’s USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings.

On Friday at Bellator 272, Sergio Pettis pulled off one of the best knockouts of the year in a comeback win over Kyoji Horiguchi to defend the Bellator bantamweight title for the first time. In Saturday’s main event at UFC on ESPN 31, Jose Aldo took care of business against Rob Font, keeping his name in the title picture.

This weekend, UFC 269 features two title fights and key matchups at the top of multiple divisions that could cause a shake-up in the next rankings update.

Check out where those fighters rank in the dropdown above and be sure to find out next week where things stand.
