Conor McGregor moves two positions up in P4P rankings
The UFC update their rankings few days after every event. And we’re here to tell you about the changes.
The UFC stick to their tradition, so strange transitions in the rankings are all there to behold. For example, Conor McGregor (21-4) hasn’t fought for almost a year but still manages to move up the rankings rather than down. And we’re talking here about the P4P rankings which is even more important. The Irishman was number 13 and is now number 11.
After losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov, Dustin Poirier lost his interim title and descended to the second place in the lightweight rankings. Tony Ferguson took his former position and is already waiting for a title shot. There’s also a new player in the top ten lightweight rankings – Paul Felder who defeated Edson Barboza by split decision at the UFC 242. He moved up from number ten to number seven. Islam Makhachev also moved one position up and is currently number 14.
Many fighters from Russia performed at the UFC 242 and another fighter joined them in top-15. Middleweight fighter Omari Akhmedov took number 14 after defeating Zak Cummings by unanimous decision.
Some changes also occurred in the heavyweight division where Curtis Blaydes took third position, which previously belonged to Junior dos Santos, after he finished Shamil Abdurakhimov in the second round.
