The data is in for UFC 105, and now the Potato Index’s arbitrary numerical rankings system is here to tell you who’s up and who’s down after this weekend’s UK action.
Randy Couture +25
It goes down as another win on his permanent record, but it just as easily could have gone the other way. He’s still great when it comes to executing a game plan, and any man who can bounce back from those kicks to the body is a tough S.O.B., but a methodical, debatable win over a mid-level 205’er doesn’t herald the dawning of a new age for Randy the light heavyweight.
Brandon Vera -21
As close as this fight was, Vera can’t complain. He spent most of the bout with his back on the fence, and when he finally put Couture in trouble he let him off the hook rather than trying to finish him off. Sorry, Truth. Looks like the middle of the pack is where you’re going to stay.
