Updated UFC HW/LHW rankings and upcoming matches


Joe Silva has been a busy man since Christmas with a lot fight announcements.  They have pretty much filled up the 30 April card already even though it is almost 4 months away.

 

Heavyweight:  I don't think announcing Frank Mir and Roy Nelson in May is enough to get the HW attention away from Strikeforce.  JDS v Lesnar might do it though.  Carwin also announced the other day that he thinks he will be ready for a fight in May, I think that a fight with either Rothwell, or Nog would be a good comeback fight for him.

LHW: With the announcement of Rampage v Silva in late May, I definitely see the Jones v Bader winner getting the next title shot.   14 of the top 15 guys have fights lined up, so there won't be too much top end match making going on right away.  Bonnar v Boetsch, and Matyushenko v Brilz would be competitive match ups to make.
