  1. Jairzinho Rozenstruik: Rebounded after a loss to Ciryl Gane in February, to improve to 12-2, knocking out Augusto Sakai in the main event Saturday and staying in the UFC heavyweight title picture.

  2. Luis Arias: Despite Jarrett Hurd getting some help from the ref and one judge, Arias earned the upset of the week, defeating Hurd as a 5-to-1 underdog on the Mayweather/Paul card.

  3. Daniel Dubois: The talented prospect now has his hands around the interim WBA championship at heavyweight after an impressive squash of Bogdan Dinu.

  4. Roberto Jimenez: I do love a one-night tournament, and few do it better than Eddie Bravo Invitational. In the 16-man welterweight combat jiu jitsu tournament. it was Jimenez standing tall at the end, lastly submitting Nathan Orchard.

8. Andrei Stoica: I do love body shot KOs, and Stoica landed a thunderous knee to the trunk of Pavel Voronin to put him down in the main event of Dynamite Fighting Show 11 in Bucharest, Romania.

9. Santiago Ponzinibbio: In a fantastic back-and-forth fight of the night with Miguel Baeza, Ponzinobbio came out the victor on the judges’ scorecards and is 50k richer on top of it.

10. Badou Jack: Well, it wasn’t Jean Pascal, but all you can do is fight the person across the ring, and Jack held sway and took care of business, knocking out Dervin Colina in the fourth.

11. Eva Guzman: The new interim WBA Women’s Flyweight title after a decision win over Isabel Millan in Mexico on Friday.
