Who’s up and who’s down? The Potato Index is here to tell you with our post-event wrap-up of arbitrary numerical rankings.
“Rampage” Jackson +121
He won a fight he was supposed to win, even if it took him 2 2/3 rounds longer than many thought it would. Jackson said he needed the work, and he looked good from start to finish. But will he still be glad he went through rounds when he has to get back in the gym and prepare for Rashad Evans in two weeks?
Keith Jardine -15
“The Dean of Mean” fought hard and, if nothing else, proved his chin isn’t so suspect after all. The guy has a lot of heart and he’ll fight anyone (except his Jackson camp buddies). There’s always a place in the UFC for someone like that.
Shane Carwin +154
Didn’t we tell you this guy was a beast? Gonzaga broke his nose in the opening seconds and it barely slowed Carwin down. The knockout blow didn’t even seem like it had all his power behind it, but it didn’t matter. Another first-round KO, and this time against a notable opponent.
