In a new adjustment to the official UFC rankings, former UFC two division champion Conor McGregor has returned to the #1 ranked position.
Prior to today’s adjustment, McGregor was ranked #2, Tony Ferguson was in the #1 slot, and Khabib Nurmagomedov is of course holding the championship throne.
Today’s adjustment to the official UFC rankings only further fuels rumors of a Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov fight being close to a reality.
The UFC’s official news program, UFC Tonight on Fox Sports 1, announced the new rankings shift during their live broadcast.
These changes have yet to be reflected on UFC.com.
