July was a pretty quiet month for the featherweight division, as only two featherweight bouts found their way on the three cards the UFC put on. In addition to that, other top organizations such as Bellator, Strikeforce, One FC and Dream did not feature 145-pounders.
Chad Mendes earned a victory at UFC 148 this month, as well as Antonio Carvalho at UFC 149. Only one man in the top 10 fought this month, proving the landscape has not made many significant changes.
These is the official rankings of the featherweight division for August 2012.
