These rankings most likely will change after next Saturday’s monster championship fight between Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez at UFC 121. But here’s how we think the top 10 looks as of now.

1. Brock Lesnar

2. Cain Velasquez

3. Alistair Overeem

4. Fedor Emelianenko

5. Junior Dos Santos

6. Fabricio Werdum

7. Shane Carwin

8. Frank Mir

9. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

10. Roy Nelson

Brock is the undisputed #1. Velasquez earned the 2 slot by knocking out Big Nog and being undefeated. Overeem gets the #3 slot due to his utter destruction of Brett Rogers, but he needs to fight more often. Fedor may have lost to Werdum, but he still gets a high ranking. Dos Santos is next in line for a title shot in the UFC. Werdum jumps into the top ten by defeating Fedor. Carwin will get another shot. Mir KOs Cro Cop to stay relevant. Big Nog gets the 9-hole due to his rep. And Roy “Big Country” Nelson rounds out the top ten.

The next tier of 10, in no particular order: Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva, Mike Russow, Shane Del Rosario, Gabriel Gonzaga, Cro Cop, Travis Browne, Brett Rogers, Ben Rothwell and Cheick Kongo.
