thats the problem with the current heavyweight rankings though many of the fighters are unproven in many areas.
actually you could be right I dont see anything wrong with jds over cain in particular on a deeper examination.
perhaps with the my deep seeded hatred of brock lesnar has allowed my to slightly overrate his conquerer in velasquez.
I hope you can forgive me....
I feel like its a toss up between these two who should be ranked higher regardless of who wears the ufc belt. thats how messed up the hw rankings are!
Junior dos Santos last 6 opponents:
Cain Velasquez last 6 opponents:
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
out of their combined opponents I would rank them like this:
1. Fabricio Werdum
2. Brock Lesnar
3. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
4. Ben Rothwell
5. Mirko Cro-Cop
6. Roy Nelson
7. Cheick Kongo
8. Gabriel Gonzaga
9. Stefan Struve
10. Jake O'Brien
11. Gilbert Yvel
12. Denis Stojnic
what have I learned from this list........ nothing! goddamn it what a wast of time
