community news, Latest UFC rankings update: Alistair Overeem boots Stipe Miocic from No. 2 spot, Stefan Struve debuts at No. 13

Thanks to his technical knockout win over Andrei Arlovski at UFC Fight Night 87 last weekend in Rotterdam (see it), Alistair Overeem is now the No. 2 ranked heavyweight in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), just one slot behind former 265-pound kingpin Cain Velasquez.

That means Joe Silva has a tough decision to make if Travis Browne comes up short at UFC 200.

Also winning big on FOX Sports 1 was hot-and-cold heavyweight veteran Stefan Struve, who cracked the division top 15 after cracking the crown of Antonio Silva (video). “Bigfoot,” meanwhile, dropped off the charts altogether following a putrid 1-5-1 dating back to 2013.

That’s not all.
