Last weekend, Charles Oliveira dominated Tony Ferguson, extending his win streak to 8. With Khabib Nurmagomedov seemingly retired, many believed that ‘Do Bronx’ had positioned himself for a shot at the title.
According to the new official rankings, that may just be the case. Oliveira is now ranked #3 in the Lightweight division, overtaking: Tony Ferguson, Conor McGregor, Dan Hooker and Rafael Dos Anjos. You can see the new top 5 rankings below:
Conor McGregor faces Dustin Poirier next month. It’s also rumoured that Michael Chandler will either face Justin Gaethje or Dan Hooker on the card. After that, it may be clear who is next in line for a shot at the belt.
