Top 10 MMA light heavyweights: May 2014

Quote:
Note that due to inactivity, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is currently ineligible for the rankings. Also note that due to a rare tie for tenth, the rankings will actually include eleven fighters. Lastly, the rankings are voted on by a panel and last rankings (5/1/14) are in parenthesis:

1. Jon Jones (1)

Jon Jones is currently expected to face Alexander Gustafsson next though a date currently isnít set and the bout agreement isnít signed yet. Itís been no secret that Jones doesnít feel that Gustafsson hasnít quite earned a title shot again so time will tell when this will happen.

2. Alexander Gustafsson (2)

As mentioned above, Alexander Gustafsson is supposedly challenging Jon Jones for the title again, however, the date hasnít been set yet.

3. Daniel Cormier (4)

Daniel Cormier had a good match against Dan Henderson at UFC 173 which supposedly has earned him the next title shot after Gustafsson. However, there is currently issues with getting the Gustafsson match ironed out so Cormier may find himself fighting earlier.

4. Rashad Evans (5)

At the present time, Rashad Evans is expected to make a return from his leg injury sometime in the fall, though an opponent is unknown.

5. Glover Teixeira (3)

Glover Teixeiraís loss to UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones puts Teixeira in the same position as many of Jonesí past opponents. There are still some opponents that he can face to build himself back up so all he can do is rebound.

6. Anthony Johnson (10)

After his win over Phil Davis at UFC 172, Anthony Johnson will get another solid light heavyweight in Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

7. Phil Davis (tied 8)

Phil Davisí loss to Anthony Johnson puts another damper on his quest for a title shot. All he can do now is rebuild to title contention again.

8. Dan Henderson (6)

The question for Dan Henderson now after his loss to Daniel Cormier is whether he can make another title run or if heís indeed done.

9. Chael Sonnen (7)

Chael Sonnen has gotten some reshuffling with fight dates and opponents and will now be facing Vitor Belfort at UFC 175 on July 5th.

10. Mauricio Rua (tied) (tied 8)

As of right now Mauricio Rua has nothing scheduled and he may not in fact be cleared to practice yet due to recent surgery on his nose.

10. Emanuel Newton (tied) (N/A)

Emanuel Newton should theoretically be facing Quinton ďRampageĒ Jackson in his first title defense but Jackson is currently hesitant.

Contenders

The following fighter received votes for the light heavyweight division rankings and is considered a contender in the division: Ryan Bader.

He needs to defeat some higher level guys before that in my opinion.
