Start with the first show headed by Michael chiesaOne-sided decision victory over Neil Magny. Chie was promoted to welterweight and became 4-0, ranking 11th in the category rankings.

Then move on to UFC 257. Here, from the viewpoint of ranking Michael chandler It will be the biggest splash. The three-time Bellator lightweight champion took the lead in his UFC debut. This is Dan Hooker’s vicious first-round finish, which is revered for his evening co-stars. Chandler has never been ranked. We can certainly argue that decision, but now we can’t deny him. Chandler enters the new ranking in 8th place.

About big things: Dustin PoirierVictory Conor McGregor It was certainly impressive. However, at the time of this writing, Habib Nurmagomedov is recognized as the UFC Lightweight Champion, and Poirier is already in second place, so he stays there. Similarly, McGregor looks sharp in Round 1 and it’s not shameful to lose to Poirier, so we keep him in sixth place.
