USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie rankings, June 20: Time to introduce a little 'Chaos'

Judging by the amount of boos he gets in an arena – not to mention the amount of vitriol he seems to generate online – Colby Covington (12-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) isn’t vying for the title of “fan favorite” anytime soon.

But with a one-sided decision win over perennial contender Dong Hyun Kim at this past weekend’s UFC Fight Night 111 event, the man known as “Chaos” is now an impressive 7-1 in his UFC career – a mark good enough to earn him the No. 11 slot in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA welterweight rankings.

Check out the new looks at 170 pounds and get an idea of what’s at stake in this busy dual-event weekend, with both Bellator NYC and the UFC Fight Night 112 happening Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
