USAT/SBN June MMA Consensus Rankings: Heavyweight

1 Fedor Emelianenko 100 Affliction 1
2 Josh Barnett 94 Affliction 2
3 Frank Mir 90 UFC 3
4 Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira 85 UFC 5
5 Brock Lesnar 80 UFC 6
6 Randy Couture 77 UFC 7
7 Shane Carwin 64 UFC 9
8 Brett Rogers 60 Strikeforce 26

#8 Brett Rogers is the biggest beneficiary of the Fedor curse this side of Ray Mercer. Rogers' demolition of #9 (former #4) Andrei Arlovski at Strikeforce's June 6th event propelled Rogers up 18 spots in the rankings this month. One of the biggest single month leaps I can recall. No word on what's next for Rogers, but one can hope that the Strikeforce title fight he had booked against #10 Alistair Overeem until Overeem broke his hand in a bar brawl will be rebooked ASAP.
