The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the world’s premier mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, and its pound-for-pound (P4P) rankings are a reflection of the best fighters in the world. After Jon Jones’s dominant victory over Ciryl Gane to win the heavyweight title, the UFC P4P rankings have been revealed, and the results are sure to spark debate.
At the top of the list is Jon Jones, who is now the UFC’s first-ever two-division champion. Jones has been a dominant force in the light heavyweight division for years, and his move to heavyweight has only solidified his place as one of the greatest fighters of all time.
In second place is Israel Adesanya, the middleweight champion. Adesanya has been on a tear since joining the UFC in 2018, and his impressive performances have earned him a spot at the top of the P4P rankings.
Third place belongs to Amanda Nunes, the women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion. Nunes has been a dominant force in the women’s divisions since joining the UFC in 2013, and her impressive performances have earned her a spot in the top three.
Fourth place is occupied by Khabib Nurmagomedov, the lightweight champion. Nurmagomedov has been a dominant force in the lightweight division since joining the UFC in 2012, and his impressive performances have earned him a spot in the top four.
Fifth place is occupied by Stipe Miocic, the heavyweight champion. Miocic has been a dominant force in the heavyweight division since joining the UFC in 2011, and his impressive performances have earned him a spot in the top five.
So, where does Conor McGregor sit in the rankings? The former two-division champion is currently ranked sixth, behind Jones, Adesanya, Nunes, Nurmagomedov, and Miocic. McGregor has been inactive since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018, and his lack of activity has caused him to slip in the rankings.
The UFC P4P rankings are sure to spark debate, and it will be interesting to see how the rankings change in the coming months. With Jon Jones now at the top of the list, it will be interesting to see if he can maintain his spot or if someone else can take his place. As for McGregor, it remains to be seen if he can make a return to the octagon and reclaim his spot in the top five.
