UFC rankings update: Conor McGregor tumbles, Michael Chandler debuts

Conor McGregor, Michael Chandler, UFC rankings

The official UFC rankings have been updated after last Saturday’s UFC 257 card on Fight Island, and as expected there have been some big changes.

Most notably, former two-division champion Conor McGregor has fallen in the pound-for-pound and lightweight rankings after being stopped by Dustin Poirier in the card’s main event.

Former Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler has also made his debut in the rankings after knocking out Dan Hooker in his first UFC fight.

The new rankings also feature some big changes at welterweight, men’s flyweight, women’s flyweight, women’s bantamweight and women’s strawweight.
