Mateusz Gamrot boots Conor McGregor from lightweight Top 10 in latest UFC rankings update

Former lightweight champion Conor McGregor is no longer a Top 10 fighter.

“Notorious” was recently replaced by surging 155-pound prospect Mateusz Gamrot, who blasted his way to No. 8 by outlasting fellow division upstart Arman Tsarukyan in the UFC Vegas 57 main event last weekend in “Sin City,” the fourth straight win for “Gamer.”

The surgically-repaired McGregor tumbled to No. 12.

Elsewhere on the charts, undefeated welterweight sensation Shavkat Rakhmonov cracked the 170-pound Top 10 by turning away longtime veteran Neil Magny. In addition, Rogerio Bontorin was removed from the flyweight lineup after parting ways with UFC.

Here’s how UFC compiles its official rankings:

Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC. A fighter can appear in more than one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.

Take a look at what the latest rankings field looks like courtesy of UFC.com. Note: (+/- = movement in rankings, T = tie, *NR = Not previously ranked).
