Rank The Heavyweight Division

I still think that the heavyweight devision is the weakest devision in the ufc, okay it has improved alot over the years but with all the confusion over who could replace Overeem at ufc 146 there wern't many choices. So where would you rank the heavyweight devision at the moment?.

i'd go....

1. Junior Dos Santos
2. Overeem
3. Frank Mir
4. Cain Valasquez
5. Werdum
6. Nogueira
7. Big Foot Silva
8. Stefan Struve
9. Hunt
10. Shaunb

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

I know Carwin's been inactive but he still beat the shit out of Mir and that's not something to be looked past, I'd include Barnett and Cormier in there after Werdum but I assume you want just UFC.

JDS
Overeem
Mir
Velasquez
Werdum
Hunt
Nelson
Barry
Bigfoot
Struve


Since Barnett isnt in the UFC yet, i cant rank him, but he would be top 5.

Edit: Btw since Mir roided himself to his current form i think he isnt even a top 10 fighter anymore. He is slow and slugish. But he will get a shot soon, thats why i put him up that high.

how does someone become #6 without ever beating a top 10 fighter? Carwin has a win over Mir and his only two losses were against champions and he is behind browne?

same goes for schaub... Nog KOed him and so did Nelson. schaub's big wins are against Cro Cop and Gonzaga

again with struve... who has he beat? his only fights vs top 15 fighters (JDS and Nelson) he got KOed

no chance either browne, struve, or schaub can be ranked ahead of Nog and Carwin. i would move your 6-9 (As a group) and slot them behind russo
