Conor McGregor breaks into the top 10

ConorMcgregorIrish superstar Conor McGregor broke into the top 10 of the UFC’s official Featherweight rankings with his first round pulverization of Diego Brandao at UFC Fight Night 46 over the weekend. Despite not having yet beaten a top 10 fighter inside the UFC, McGregor’s wins over Marcus Brimage (TKO), Max Holloway (UD), and now Brandao (TKO), were enough for the “MMA media” to give him the bump from number 12 to number 10.

With McGregor’s two moves up, he passes up Jeremy Stephens, who was previously ranked number 10, and Dennis Bermudez, who was previously ranked number 11.

Here’s the latest line-up:

Champion : Jose Aldo

  1. Chad Mendes
  2. Frankie Edgar
  3. Cub Swanson
  4. Ricardo Lamas
  5. Chan Sung Jung
  6. Dustin Poirier
  7. Clay Guida
  8. Nik Lentz
  9. Dennis Siver
  10. Conor McGregor
  11. Jeremy Stephens
  12. Dennis Bermudez
  13. Darren Elkins
  14. Charles Oliveira
  15. Tatsuya Kawajiri

Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone has also moved up in the rankings, taking the Lightweight number 5 spot from Rafael Dos Anjos, following his first round knockout of Jim Miller at UFC Fight Night 45 last Wednesday night in Atlantic City.
