ProMMAnow.com World Rankings update – AKA upsets shake up two divisions

Nothing shakes up the ProMMANow World Rankings like an upset, and this past weekend featured two high-profile shockers. Luke Rockhold defeated Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza to not only claim the Strikeforce middleweight title, but also enter the rankings for the first time. In the heavyweight division, two-time U.S. Olympian Daniel Cormier continued his undefeated run with a first-round knockout of Antonio Silva. He will meet Josh Barnett, who also moved into the top-ten with a victory over Sergei Kharitonov.
