LowKick.com Community Heavyweight Rankings: JDS 2nd, Carwin 5thPosted on June 10, 2011, 08:39 AM by Anton Gurevich
Junior Dos Santos will enter the Octagon in Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada as #2 ranked Heavyweight on LowKick.com Community rankings. Dos Santos's opponent, Shane Carwin, is currently ranked on #5, behind Brock Lesnar (Cigano's original opponent) and the Strikeforce Heavyweght Champion Alistair Overeem. Speaking about Overeem, the Dutch powerhouse is ranked #3, as his July 18th opponent, Fabricio Werdum, is currently occupying the 6th spot.
If Shane Carwin is victorious against Junior Dos Santos on Saturday, and Fabricio Werdum manages to upset Alistair Overeem, then both fighters are expected to form the Heavyweight Top 3 on LowKick.com Community rankings.
Also in the rankings, following his defeat at TUF 13 Finale, former WEC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis dropped two places to number 6, as the victorious Clay Guida solidified his place in Top 10, and is currently ranked on #8. As for UFC 130's influence on the rankings, it looks like LowKick.com Community was not impressed with Rampage Jackson's performance against Matt Hamill. The A Team star dropped one place to #5 in Light Heavyweight Rankings, comparing to #4 in April.
Rankings will be re-opened again n June 21st, three days after the long anticipated Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum event in Dallas, Texas. Feel free to visit the rankings section for Pound for Pound rankings for June 5th, as well as for other weight classes.
