The UFC Lightweight has the potential to be the hot bed of UFC, if it were not for injuries ruining fights and UFC’s most sellable prospect staying in a self imposed hiatus.
After a long time UFC rankings have actually decided to honour the fact that the long time no. 1 ranked UFC lightweight has had only a single title match at Lightweight and that too back in Nov 2016.
In the newly released UFC rankings, Tony Ferguson has surpassed Mcgregor to become the No. 1 contender for the middleweight gold, which currently sits with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Ferguson welcomed the change all too very well and mocked Mcgregor, ordering him to ‘move out of the way’.
Despite being at the front of the line, “El Cucuy’s” shot at the title remains uncertain. The fight between him and Khabib has been planned for a staggering 4 times, but failed to materialise every single time.
