#1 -- Adam Dyczka (5-0)

Dyczka automatically moves to the No. 1 spot being the only heavyweight in the Top 5 with an undefeated record. The 26-year-old fighter is slated to face Bakary Sakho at TKO 41 on Dec. 8.

The Canadian heavyweight moves to the No. 2 spot with his highlight-reel knockout over Dave Cryer at ACB 72 last month. 


#3 -- Dontale Mayes (3-2)

The 25-year-old drops to the No. 3 spot as Boser moves up. Mayes lost his most recent outing, losing via TKO to Allen Crowder in August. 

#4 – Jeff Hughes (7-1)

The 29-year-old has won seven of his last eight fights, with his lone loss coming against TUF 19 standout Dan Spohn. Hughes is slated to face Richard Odoms Nov. 3 for the LFA heavyweight title. 

#5 – Jared Vanderaa (6-1)  

The 25-years-old boasts all six of his wins by stoppage and has yet to go the distance in his seven-fight career.
