After his ninth consecutive win, Tony Ferguson can now call himself the No. 1 UFC lightweight contender.
The former Ultimate Fighter winner climbed over Khabib Nurmagomedov and Rafael dos Anjos – who he bested this past weekend – into that spot in the latest UFC rankings.
Amanda Nunes, the reigning UFC female bantamweight champion, also debuted in the overall Top-15 at No. 15.
The rankings will be updated once more next week after UFC 205.
