Power Rankings: Heavyweight
Monday, Feb. 3
Well, let's try to put into context what just happened. Alistair Overeem beat Frank Mir. Does that still mean anything? Overeem, in describing Mir both before and after the fight, used words like "tricky" and "experienced." Those are both great attributes, but if they're the primary things you're hanging your hat on, it's not a good sign. Mir has now lost four fights in a row and been badly hurt in three of them. His position within the UFC roster is unclear. A win is a win for Overeem, and it's something he badly needed at this point in his career. But getting back to that question of, Does it mean anything? It definitely doesn't mean as much as it used to.
