Now that longtime UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre has vacated his belt, he’s no longer included in the promotion’s official rankings. The void St-Pierre has left behind in the top pound-for-pound rankings has been filled by UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey (7-0).

The undefeated twenty-six year old women’s mixed martial arts pioneer has remained undefeated since beginning her professional career in 2011. She’s won every single one of her fights by armbar in the first round. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s earned her way onto the list.

All of the other fighters on the list have moved up a slot to make room for Rousey, except for light heavyweight champ Jon Jones who was already ranked number one.

Here are the official UFC pound-for-pound rankings taken from their website:

1 Jon Jones
2 Jose Aldo
3 Anderson Silva
4 Cain Velasquez
5 Renan Barao
6 Demetrious Johnson
7 Anthony Pettis
8 Chris Weidman
9  Benson Henderson
10 Ronda Rousey
