    ScoreCardMMA have him just outside both of those.
    He is #32 P4P and #4 FW.

    Still Aldo -McGregor is considered to be one of the biggest fights, if not the biggest in 2015.
    That is typically reserved for top 2 in the divisions or two fighters that are in top 20 P4P

    So, do you consider McGregor to be top 30 P4P fighter right now, or top 3 FW?

    The fun part about the whole thing is that we don't know how good he is.

    Not yet. Aldo, Edgar, Mendes and Lamas is ahead of him.

    You are right about that.
    But, just looking on his fights, is there any way to justify him being considered one of the best fighters today.

    Who cares about rankings? The betting odds for this fight are closer than Edgar, Mendes, or even Faber.

    Money never lies
