The dust has settled after one of the greatest heavyweight clashes ever. Two legends of the sport reminded everyone why we cheer for them fight after fight.
According to one, this is where the heavyweights stand. In which order they appear is debatable, but there is no doubt that these are the top ten guys.
10- Cheick Kongo (14-5-1)
9- Junior Dos Santos (8-1)
8- Gabriel Gonzaga (11-4)
7- Cain Velasquez (6-0)
6- Mirko Filipovic (25-6-2)
5- Randy Couture (16-10)
4- Frank Mir (12-4)
3- Shane Carwin (11-0)
2- Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (32-5-1)
1- Brock Lesnar (4-1)
The next fight that is going to shake up the standings is set to take place at UFC 103 where Black House prospect Junior "Cigano" Dos Santos is set to take on Pride stand-out, Mirko "Cro Crop" Filipovic.
A win for Dos Santos could sky-rocket him even further up the heavyweight ladder, while a win for Cro Crop could set up a highly anticipated rematch with Antonio Nogueira.
