Another week of fights is in the books and the UFC fighter rankings have once again been updated.

Following this past weekend’s UFC Norfolk event in which Dustin Poirier downed former 155-pound king Anthony “Showtime” Pettis in the evening’s headliner, “The Diamond” has now climbed the lightweight rankings up one spot to be crowned No. 7. While the night’s glory belonged to Poirier, the talk of the mixed martial arts (MMA) world is the progression UFC middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre made on the pound-for-pound (P4P) list.

In the updated UFC fighter rankings, “GSP” gone up one spot in the P4P ranks to the No. 2-spot. The 185-pound champ surpasses UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and is just one spot shy of being recognized as the best in the world – a moniker currently belonging to flyweight king Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.
