Following his impressive performance at UFC Fight Night 46 in Dublin, Ireland this past Saturday, UFC Featherweight contender Conor McGregor has burst onto the top ten scene in the official UFC Featherweight rankings.

Below is an excerpt from a new UFC.com article announcing McGregor’s emergence as an official top ten contender.

“After almost a year on the shelf recovering from a torn ACL, “Notorious” Conor McGregor returned at Fight Night Dublin and looked as good as ever. The budding Irish superstar finished Diego Brandao in the first round, sending a message to the entire featherweight division.

The voting media members in the official UFC rankings were obviously impressed with McGregor, voting him up two spots into the top 10 for the first time in his career.”

CHAMPION: JOSE ALDO
1. Chad Mendes
