UFC fighter rankings: McGregor ranks 4th ahead of Aldo fight, while Siver drops out of top 10

Conor McGregor continued his climb up the UFC featherweight rankings with his dismantling of Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night in Boston last Sunday.

The latest UFC rankings release was all about the featherweight division. Conor McGregor's defeat of Dennis Siver on Sunday earned him a title shot and another bump up the top 5, while Siver was removed from the top 10. Dustin Poirier's decision to move back to lightweight will likely see him continue to move down the ladder until he's completely unranked. Otherwise, no changes were made at lightweight after the Donald Cerrone/Ben Henderson and Gleison Tibau/Norman Parke bouts, and the rest of the card was otherwise filled with unranked fighters who were never likely to make their way into the top 15 in their respective weight classes.
