I didn't see the fight with Mikey, but I did see the video of the 2nd round and the finish.
That puts a hurting on Mikey's standing in the Middleweight division... it's beginning to look like Mikey just might not have deserved that #4 ranking that he climbed to a while back.
Rockhold was ranked #5 in the UFC and Mikey was ranked #9 going into this fight, so I don't see how the outcome of this fight impacts either man in the UFC rankings... but you never know with the media, maybe they want the Weidman vs. Rockhold fight too.
Maybe Mikey to 10 or 11, and Luke stays at 5 ?

Even when I'm 100% certain of a fight outcome, I'm only 75% sure... and of that, there's only a 50/50 shot that I'm right.
