Conor McGregor jumps from 11th to FIRST ahead of Khabib and Jon Jones in UFC P4P rankings blunder that left fans baffled

CONOR MCGREGOR enjoyed a brief moment at the top of the UFC's pound-for-pound rankings this week.

A technical error saw the Irish superstar move above the likes of Jon Jones and old rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC fans could not believe their eyes as McGregor was ranked as the No1 on the official website.

It showed McGregor at the top with Jones in second, Khabib in third and Israel Adesanya in fourth.

After the error was spotted, normality was restored and Khabib returned to the No1 spot.

Khabib replaced Jones as the UFC's P4P king following his win over Justin Gaethje.

The Russian hardman then announced his retirement with a record of 29-0-0.

UFC chief Dana White labelled him as the 'GOAT' as he called time on his fighting career.

But Jones, 26-1-0, hit back as he said: "15 world titles, numbers don't lie."

The corrected UFC P4P rankings show McGregor positioned outside of the top 10 again.

He has not fought since his incredible win over Donald Cerrone in January.

But the 22-4-0 fighter is preparing for his comeback bout against Dustin Poirier.

McGregor has showed off his incredible body transformation as he prepares to return.
