Bas Rutten's top 10 Heavyweight Rankings from this weeks Inside MMA.



I can't say I disagree with Bas on the rankings.

He was worried about takedowns. He'll have a different approach to the JDS fight.

so right now i'm just not seeing how that's going to succeed against JDS, who is a murderously-efficient MMA boxer / puncher.

Really, the guy who went to a decision against 2 HWs with some of the worst cardio in the division?

The funny thing is before Overeem's falling out with GG, Bas had Overeem #1, but now Bas is awfully bitter. Also, I don't understand Carwin and Nog's ranking.

my ears are open if you have any ideas. i was thinking that JDS's lead leg is a little bit exposed and potentially vulnerable to kicks. maybe try to weaken him or hit him on that bad knee, i don't know...

if someone, like a BJJ or wrestler type, could take JDS down one day then i'd love to see what would happen. i guess that's not going to be AO, though.

please. how many people have been able to knock out nelson and carwin so far?

fact is, JDS gave them some of their worst beatings ever, particularly carwin.

Alistair Overeem (36-11 MMA, 1-0 UFC) us unlikely to fight champion Junior Dos Santos (14-1 MMA, 8-0 UFC) for the UFC heavyweight title this summer at UFC 146.

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer today told MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) the No. 1 heavyweight contender failed a pre-fight drug test conducted this past Tuesday following a press conference for UFC 146.

Overeem's "A" sample was flagged for an elevated T/E ratio of more than 10-to-1. Kizer said the heavyweight has the right to request the test's "B" sample, which, if negative, would make him eligible to receive a fight license.

Uh oh

It's a bit odd how the only one who knew he had to take random tests gets caught. I guess he'll go back and fight in Japan for now. Sucks that he hurt 146. I wonder if they'll give the shot to Mir now.

I hope he passes the "B" sample otherwise it could ruin the whole card.

I love seeing Mir get beat silly but I really want to see JDS vs Overreem. Then Mir can get beat silly by the winner or whatever.
