UFC Heavyweight Rankings

Well, as I alluded to, here are my UFC fighter rankings and we’ll start with the Heavyweight division

Champ: Randy Couture — we all know the situation here, hopefully he stops being a little bitch and takes the fight with Nogueira that will be offered to him in the coming days.

Interim Champ: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

  1. Cheick Kongo
  2. Frank Mir
  3. Andrei Arlovski
  4. Tim Sylvia
  5. Fabricio Werdum
  6. Gabriel Gonzaga
  7. Brandon Vera
  8. Heath Herring
  9. Brock Lesnar
  10. Mirko CroCop

In the running: Eddie Sanchez, Antoni Hardonk, Jake O’Brien

Analysis: After Kongo and Arlovski both win their fights at UFC 82 (vs. Herring and O’Brien respectively) and if Couture turns down the fight with Nog then I believe that Kongo should fight Nog in May or June and Arlovski (hopefully extended right away) should then take on Frank Mir on the same card for the No. 1 contender spot. Lesnar is supposed to fight again in June, I think a perfect opponent for him would be CroCop and if that won’t work then it should be Hardonk. Other matchups could be Vera-Herring and Sylvia-Werdum.
