The UFC has sent out a tweet through its official Twitter account showing the updated men’s note-for-pound ratings. Khabib Nurmagomedov is at the top of the latest P4P rankings again.

Khabib Nurmagomedov remains No. 1; UFC includes ‘fan rating’

The UFC rankings are known to serve as a useful tool that will help fans better understand the position of their favorite fighter in the company.

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was promoted to No. 1 place on the men’s pound-for-pound rankings after his impressive win at UFC 254 in October this year.

The Eagle faced Justin Gaethje Interim Lightweight Championship in a title unification matchup that was above UFC 254 on October 24, 2020.

Nurmagomedov took control of the fight and ended up receiving a technical application award over Gaethje in round two of their fight. The Eagle choked a triangle that made his opponent unconscious due to the postponement of the fight.

With the win over Justin Gaethje, Khabib Nurmagomedov lifted his MMA record to 29-0 and then claimed that he should earn him a No. 1 place in the UFC ‘s pound – for – pound ranking. In addition, The Eagle announced his retirement from the sport of MMA.

Nurmagomedov then achieved No. 1 ranking on the UFC pound-for-pound ranking, with many in the MMA world praising the talented fighter for his unparalleled excellence in the sport.

However, the fans are divided over the No. 1 spot in the UFC pound-for-pound ranking given to Khabib Nurmagomedov. Many believe Jon Jones, and not Nurmagomedov, deserves a No. 1 spot in the UFC’s pound-for-pound rankings.

Jones, for his part, has consistently criticized Khabib Nurmagomedov as No. 1 in the pound-for-pound rankings.

Plus, Bones is still at No. 2, according to the UFC men’s latest pound-for-pound rankings. Khabib Nurmagomedov continues to gain control of the list at No. 1. Fans can check out the updated rankings listed below –
