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
- Cheick Kongo
- Frank Mir
- Andrei Arlovski
- Tim Sylvia
- Fabricio Werdum
- Gabriel Gonzaga
- Brandon Vera
- Heath Herring
- Brock Lesnar
- 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.
