After yet another dominant performance on the weekend, Conor McGregor has been rewarded with a move up in the UFC's official rankings. 

The Irishman has surpassed Cub Swanson to move up in to the number four slot, and will face the current champion Jose Aldo in his next fight in an effort to claim the belt or himself. 


He has yet to break in to the top 15 in the pound-for-pound category, but as his rise in the rankings continues, he looks like he's making good on his promise to dominate the whole division.  

Ricardo Lamas, who sits one spot above McGregor, was the target of his ire at the press conference after his fight in Boston, as a result of a parody video he made poking fun at the Irishman, but given that Lamas already fought and lost to Aldo, McGregor probably won't be getting involved in much more than a war of words with him for the moment. 

Dana White confirmed after the action in Boston over the weekend that McGregor will take on Aldo for the title in Las Vegas this May, which is bound to be another huge hit with Irish audiences.
