Brock Lesnar Could Be Closer Too Title Shot Than You Think

0's Sam Caplan breaks down the UFC Heavyweight Rankings in an article at CBS Sports, and when you really take a look at the UFC Heavyweight division, Brock Lesnar really isn't that far away from a shot at the UFC Heavyweight title.

1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Fabricio Werdum
3. Gabriel Gonzaga
4. Frank Mir
5. Brock Lesnar
6. Heath Herring
7. Cheick Kongo
8. Cain Velasquez
9. Shane Carwin
10. Antoni Hardonk

In terms of the UFC by it's self, these rankings are pretty much as close to official as you can get. With two or possibly even one win over Werdum or Gonzaga, Lesnar could basically become the numer one contender to the heavyweight crown.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will defend his title against Frank Mir in December following the eighth season of the Ultimate Fight in which they are coaches on and if Lesnar does fight and win his next fight or two he could be in line for a title shot in early 2009.
