Last updated

Former UFC two division champion Conor McGregor has officially re-entered the UFC’s pound for pound rankings. The Notorious One has been entered at 15th on the list, following the now ‘official’ announcement of Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC President Dana White confirmed on Friday that Khabib had now retired from the sport, despite the President attempting to tease him back for a potential chance to go 30-0.

‘29-0 it is. He is 100% officially retired’ Dana White wrote. ‘It was incredible to watch you work @TeamKhabib, thank you for EVERYTHING and enjoy whatever is next my friend.’
