UFC Rankings Are Here: McGregor Sinks, Jones Soars

The UFC’s pound-for-pound rankings have been updated to reflect the most recent round of fights.

As expected, Conor McGregor continues on his steady decline from MMA superstardom, falling 2 spots down in the pound-for-pound rankings down to #14. Jon Jones, the reigning Light Heavyweight champion, remains a comfortable #1 in the pound-for-pound, but it’s worth noting that Thiago Santos is closing in on him in his own division, overcoming Daniel Cormier to be ranked #2.
