MMA WORLD RANKINGS RELEASED

The MMA world rankings for the week 29-5-2011 has just been released (sponsored by the Free Bet website). Here's our breakdown of the 8 weight classes for the end of the month:

Heavyweight (265 pound limit)

1) Fabricio Werdum (“Vai Cavalo”)

Werdum was the man who finally put an end to Fedor Emelianenko’s run. Now, Werdum is set to take on Alistair Overeem in the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament quarterfinals in a couple of weeks.

2) Cain Velasquez

A dominating win over Brock Lesnar puts Velasquez into the #2 spot. As he gets closer to returning from injury, his opponent is still yet to be determined.

3) Antonio Silva (“Bigfoot”)

Silva continues to wait for the next round of the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament after dominating Fedor Emelianenko in their quarterfinal matchup.
