UFC 159 Results: Top 10 Heavyweights in the UFC
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 159 was not a card full of heavyweight matchups, but the one fight, between Roy Nelson and Cheick Kongo, delivered with a highlight-reel finish by "Big Country."

Nelson put the heavyweight division on notice with his knockout of Kongo and reaffirmed his position as a legitimate contender.

Since there are only 27 heavyweights currently under the UFC banner, all of these fighters are in the mix at 265.

The title picture will get a little clearer at UFC 160 on May 25 when Cain Velasquez defends his belt against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Junior dos Santos slugs it out with Mark Hunt for the No. 1 contender spot.
