During the five-day period of Friday, September 7 through Tuesday, September 11, six bouts featuring fighters not currently ranked by TTR which may impact TTR's rankings took place. As a result, Zair Abdullaev, Denis Lebedev, Amir Khan, Adam Kownacki, and Takuma Inoue, all of whom won, and Donnie Nietes and Aston Palicte, who fought to a debatable stalemate, may have fought their way into or, in some cases, back into TTR's rankings.
