On the list, Khabib Nurmagomedov was at the top of the list, replacing Jon Jones at number 1 after Justin Gaethje announced his resignation on Saturday.
At the last table, Gaethje fell to 10th place, one place before McGregor. The Dubliner’s next opponent, Dustin Poirier, takes seventh place.
Responding on social media, Khabib said, “It’s been a job of my life, I’ve never got anything easy and I wasn’t given anything because I’m a nice guy.
“Hard work, hope in Allah and patience, these three ingredients help me to be successful, and of course the control and advice of my father who put a lot of time and work into me.”
McGregor, meanwhile, joked that 11th place was on the list for “Double 1”.
He tweeted: “Yes! Double 1 on the pound-for-pound list! Excellent! #ChampChamp„“
Nurmagomedov retires with a 29-0 record after subduing Gaethje, Poirier and McGregor in his last three fights.
On Saturday, he announced that he had promised his mother not to continue fighting without his father, who passed away earlier this year after contracting Covid-19.
McGregor and Poirier, who beat The Notorious in 2014, are now likely to battle for the free belt when they face each other in a rematch on January 23.
McGregor, meanwhile, is training ahead of his UFC return. The 32-year-old shared a clip of his workout with teammate Cian Cowley as he presses ahead with his preparations.
