Guess who’s back, back again. Conor’s back, tell a friend. The UFC pound-for-pound rankings welcomes back its biggest superstar, just in time for his return to the octagon. There are plenty of people who’d scoff at the notion that The Notorious belongs at No. 2, but no rankings are more subjective than P4P.
Really, how do you objectively classify which guys are better when there’s no chance that they’d ever face each other? Unless we somehow organically 3D print every fighter into the same weight class, everything here is a matter of opinion. Why does the UFC rank Tyron Woodley ahead of Khabib Nurmagomedov, when the latter is undefeated? Are we supposed to believe that Henry Cejudo is better than Tony Ferguson, even though his resume is half as impressive?
We can go back and forth all day on this, but let’s just get right to it. Below are the UFC’s current Pound-for-Pound rankings, and we’ll discuss UFC odds from BookMaker.eu on a few upcoming fights below.

UFC Odds and Ends
Odds are already up for the McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov superfight at UFC 229 on October 6, and the Russian is a big -180 favorite. Of course, McGregor’s loyal fanbase could cause dramatic movement as we get closer to fight night, so our advice here would be to wait for The Eagle’s line to go up if you were planning to bet on him. Of course, we’ll have an in-depth betting guide for you during fight week.
Georges St. Pierre, who comes in at No. 5, has already called dibs on the winner of McGregor-Nurmagomedov. Dana White has already stated that it’s not happening, but money always talks. We have a feeling that if Khabib wins, the UFC will find a way to match him up with GSP, probably at catchweight. If Conor wins, then everything is up in the air.
No. 7 Tyron Woodley will defend his title at UFC 228 on September 8 against undefeated Darren Till. The champion opened as a slight favorite, but we’ve seen his line go up as people seem to be jumping on Till’s bandwagon. We usually lean towards effective wrestlers like T-Wood in matchups, but seeing the massive Till tower over the smaller Woodley obviously has an effect on bettors. The big question here is whether Till makes weight.
Side note: Both Till and Woodley are coming off dreadfully boring performances, which makes us a bit scared that we’ll be watching five rounds of staring and feinting. If Woodley wins another yawner, it’s possible that his next title fight will not be on pay-per-view - which is crazy to think about.
It seems like everybody that’s 205 pounds and above is making their callout of Daniel Cormier. But the one fight that DC is really aiming for is a money fight with Brock Lesnar. The UFC has never turned down Lesnar because the man is a magnet for pay-per-view buys. He’s also a big draw in the sportsbook, which is why Cormier vs. Lesnar is a scrap that’s listed in the Future Events section. Obviously, DC is a massive favorite at -275, with Lesnar at +215 on the comeback.
