MMA pound-for-pound rankings: It is unanimous — Khabib is unsurpassed

“I do know just one factor what I would like from UFC,” Khabib Nurmagomedov stated moments after his victory over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. “You guys must put me No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter on the planet, as a result of I deserve it.”

That he does.

And regardless of the undefeated light-weight champion having introduced his retirement instantly after his second-round submission win Oct. 24 on Combat Island, the UFC did preserve Nurmagomedov in its rankings and did elevate him to the highest spot, as he wished.

The ESPN pound-for-pound males’s rankings, however, have been forward of the curve. The 32-year-old Dagestani has been No. 1 for months. That is what a 29-0 report crammed with dominant victories will get you.
