Cro Cop-- very close with Nog. Almost a tie. I give tge edge to Cro Cop with his gp victory this year.
Nog-- see above.
Barnett-- clearly number 4 with his 2 close fights with Nog.
Sylvia-- UFC HW champ. His style may not be pretty, but he gets the job done. Huge year with 4 victories-- Silva, Arlovski 2 x, and Monson. Underrated due to his appearance and lacluster fighting style.
Hunt-- opened many eyes in his fight against Fedor. Keeps improving. Big win over TK earlier ths year.
Arlovski-- on the rise again with his victory over pe de pano
Werdum-- huge victory over alex, hung with nog, definite contender
Monson-- huge unbeaten streak for some time. victories over cole, hinkle, and pe de pano. was impressive in losing to sylvia
Vera-- unbeaten prospect. on a huge tear
Alex-- the horrible performance against werdum really drops his rank
Sergei-- bad year for sergei. hope to see him rise to the top 10 again
Heath-- pretty inactive for the last 2 years. Still hovers about in the top 15. was not impressive in defeating goodridge. Questions will be answered when he begins to fight in the ufc
Wanderlei-- victory over fujita really established him as a dangerous hw. However, his destruction at the hands of cro cop tells us he will never be a threat for the title
Zentsov-- on fire earlier this year, and then---? nothing. Hope to see him fight again soon. Has a sledgehammer for a right hand
Mir-- worst year amongst all the top heavys. Another loss may not only put him out of the top 20, but maybe in KOTC or elsewhere
Fujita-- made quick work of the wrestler. Always tough. Durable. Loss to Wanderlie hurt his rank
Buentello-- destruction of tank. Should not have been dropped by the ufc. Hope to see him signed by ufc or pride soon. Tons of potential.
Ricco-- speaking of potential! If Ricco loses the weight, expect him to be a force. Fights no namers, his victory over waterman is what reestablished him as on the rise again.
TK-- i was sad too see the old, grizzled war vet. retire. Victories over morais, waterman, and sperry, and impressive in defeat agaist fedor and hunt (both gtsy performances) let us know that he is still dangerous and is still a contender
Yoshida deserves to be in the top 15 due to his win over Mark Hunt. True he lost to Thompson but make no mistake before he fell on his head, he was the better fighter.
Monson and Arlovski are not top 10 like CTsar said.
Allistair Overeem deserves to be top 15, due to his win over Sergei.
And Fujita should be ranked higher, he can beat many HWs.. he looked bad against Wand because Wand has incredible speed.
lol at arlovski not in the top 10
Buentello would KO Mir. Werdum and Hunt should be above big Tim.
Is there such a thing in MMA. Try a top 5-6.
Anyone that says Arlovski isnt in the top ten is a dumb shit. Yes he lost to the oger twice. But he will rise to the top again.
