UFC rankings: Conor McGregor crashes to near the bottom of the list

In the latest and updated UFC rankings, Conor McGregor barely makes the list where he was once at the top

The latest UFC rankings were recently released. While some have been surprised at Conor McGregor’s presence on the pound-for-pound list despite his absence, he has been a staple of that list for years. Once he hovered near the top of the list, now, however, things have turned. Inactivity combined with his last fight, a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov, have made McGregor slip further down the list. In this weeks updated ranking, McGregor falls to 14th place, just one spot from the bottom of the pound-for-pound-rankings.

As of now Jon Jones sits at the top of the pound-for-pound rankings, with Nurmagomedov at second. Double champ Henry Cejudo lands at third place with heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic at fourth.

Aside from this, Thiago Santos has passed former champ Daniel Cormier in the light heavyweight rankings. The last time Cormier fought at light heavyweight was in January 2018. Santos was the most recent fighter to challenge current light heavyweight champ Jon Jones, and became the first to take the title holder to a split decision.

Meanwhile former middleweight champ Anderson Silva made a comeback to the middleweight rankings at 15th place, following countryman Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza’s debut at light heavyweight.
