For a connected undirected graph $G=(V,E)$ with vertex set $\{1, 2, \ldots, n\}$ and degrees $ d_i$, for $1\le i \le n$, we show that $$ABC(G) \le \sqrt{(n-1)(|E|-R_{-1}(G))},$$ where $\displaystyle R_{-1}(G)=\sum_{(i,j)\in E}\frac{1}{d_id_j}$ is the Randi\'c index. This bound allows us to obtain some maximal results for the $ABC$ index with elementary proofs and to improve all the upper bounds in [20], as well as some in [17], using lower bounds for $R_{-1}(G)$ found in the literature and some new ones found through the application of majorization.
