Weight Class:

The four horsemen of the UFC's heavyweight division -- Cain Velasquez, Brock Lesnar, Junior dos Santos and Shane Carwin -- are still top-5 overall. But when compared to Strikeforce's crop, some of that could be publicity.

Strikeforce's Grand Prix, which started with a bang before the gulf of passing months made people forget about the other side of the bracket -- has mixed eight mean heavies, some of whom would be more than game imposition against the UFC's big guns. When that starts happening, this division becomes a weekly Etch-a-Sketch.

Fedor Emelianenko barely holds a position in the top 10, which is small consolation for the man that would have been the standard on this list a year ago.
