UFC Rankings Update: Jon Jones Moves Up Pound-For-Pound List

The official UFC rankings are in, and Jon Jones appears to be on the come-up once again.

After nearly a year-and-a-half year removed from his last fight, Jones will looks to recapture his light heavyweight belt against incumbent champ Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 this weekend.

The pound-for-pound list has been updated as well, with Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson edging out Conor McGregor for the coveted number one spot.

Jones went up two spots on the pound-for-pound list, coming in at number five on the list he used to regularly dominate.

Both Cody Garbrandt and Max Holloway dropped a spot on the P4P list as Jones moves his way back up to the top. Holloway recently defeated Jose Aldo to become UFC featherweight champion, while Garbrandt has remained inactive since taking the bantamweight title from Dominick Cruz in December 2016.
