No.5 Junior dos Santos (“Cigano”)
Instead of waiting for Cain to recover, JDS is coaching TUF and fighting Brock at the end.
After getting handled by Cain Velasquez, Lesnar drops out of the top 3. After many rumours about his status, Lesnar will fight Junior dos Santos after filming TUF.
No.3 Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva
Silva put the legendary Fedor Ememlianenko closer to retirement with a doctor stoppage in Strikeforce’s heavyweight tournament.
No.2 Cain Velasquez
A dominating win over Brock Lesnar puts Velasquez into the #2 spot. Unfortunately, an injury puts him on the shelf for quite some time.
No.1 Fabricio Werdum (“Vai Cavalo”)
To be the man, you have to beat the man. And Werdum beat the man, handing Fedor Emelianenko his first legitimate loss of the Russian’s MMA career. He’ll take onin the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament quarterfinals later this year.
