Top 5 MMA Heavyweights

In two months, Randy Couture will defend his title against former WWE champion Brock Lesnar. A betting favorite, a win will make fans salivate for a match against consensus MMA favorite, Fedor Emelianenko.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia points out the obvious.

1) Fedor Emelianenko
Only Randy Couture can make a case for disputing this ranking, but with each passing day, "The Russian Bear," who looks more like a dock worker, keeps making talks of No. 2 a moot point.

2) Randy Couture
Only Fedor stands between MMA Heavyweight supremacy. But luckily for Couture, he has not been the reason for this match not happening; it's a $1 Billion pound gorilla named the UFC.

3) Antonio Nogueira
Once again Fedor makes an unscheduled appearance. If it wasn't for the former PRIDE champion, Nog would get the nod.

4) Andre Arlovski
His tenacity, along with the fact he has won his last 4 fights decisively, help him make it to the top 10.

5) Frank Mir
The former UFC Heavyweight Champion has come a long way since breaking Tim Sylvia's arm and recovering from a serious motorcycle injury. He has since submitted the powerful Lesnar and his future looks bright as ever as long as he avoids strikers like Brandon Vera and gets by jiu jitsu expert Nogueira, his co star on the 8th season of The Ultimate Fighter.
