Where does Mirko go in the HW Rankings?
The heavyweight rankings just got a much needed shake with the defeat of Mirko Cro Cop at the hands, and I guess feet of Cheik Kongo. The way MMA Weekly has it right now, Mirko is number three. Remember they haven't been updated yet.
#1 Heavyweight Fighter in the World: Fedor Emelianenko
2. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
3. Mirko Cro Cop
4. Josh Barnett
5. Randy Couture
6. Gabriel Gonzaga
7. Tim Sylvia
8. Andrei Arlovski
9. Fabricio Werdum
10. Aleksander Emelianenko
Well, he did get his head kicked off by the number 6 ranked, and still managed to hold on to his number three position, but now, with a loss to someone not even in the top 10, maybe not even top 20 on some people's books, where does Mirko line up? I think it is safe to say he will still be in the top ten. His past wins cannot be denied. But where does he fall?
Personally, I think he will, and should fall in at number 5.
