Cain Velasquez 3. Stipe Miocic 4. Alistair Overeem 5. Junior dos Santos 6. Ben Rothwell 7. Travis Browne 8. Andrei Arlovski 9. Mark Hunt (+1) 10. Josh Barnett (-1) 11. Ruslan Magomedov 12. Vitaly Minakov 13. Matt Mitrione (+1) 14. Derrick Lewis (+1) 15. Roy Nelson (NR) With UFC Fight Night 85’s main event taking place this weekend, Mark Hunt battled former two-time heavyweight champion Frank Mir and not only won, but walked off for the fourth time inside the Octagon. Hunt moves up slightly for his impressive victory while Mir, who has lost two straight, was removed from the top 15 field. Welterweight 1. Robbie Lawler 2. Rory MacDonald 3. Stephen Thompson 4. Tyron Woodley 5. Johny Hendricks 6. Carlos Condit 7. Ben Askren 8. Demian Maia (+1) 9. Neil Magny (+3) 10. Hector Lombard (-2) 11. Rousimar Palhares (-1) 12. Matt Brown (-1) 13. Benson Henderson 14. Albert Tumenov 15. Dong Hyun Kim The biggest performance this weekend belonged to Neil Magny, who was nearly put out in the first round against the extremely dangerous Hector Lombard. Magny managed not only to survive, but thrive in the second round, crushing a gassed Lombard and then putting “Showeather” away via early third round TKO. Magny has the heart of a champion and his conditioning and reach are lethal weapons. Lombard was the biggest victory of his career and he’s definitely earned a bout against another top contender in the welterweight division.
