With UFC 155 passing, there was some reshuffling in the UFC’s heavyweight division rankings as Cain Velasquez recaptured the UFC heavyweight title, and Junior Dos Santos suffered his first loss in the octagon. This list covers current rankings, but expect some movement within the upcoming cards with Stefan Struve taking on Mark Hunt, Alistair Overeem taking on Antonio Silva, Gabriel Gonzaga taking on Ben Rothwell, and Mike Russow looking return to form against Shawn Jordan. So, lets take a look at the division as it stands now.
#10 Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
The legendary Big Nog could have been higher up the list, but injuries have kept him out of fighting consistently the last few years. Big finishes over Brendan Schaub and Dave Herman only added to his legacy and aura. He will face probably one of his biggest test in the last few years when he faces Fabricio Werdum next. If he wins big in that bout it may show how much of a contender he still can be.
