    Losing to the #5 gets you unranked?

    No but he looked terrible. Maybe it's the end of his contract and they decided to cut him?

    JDS knew would be gone, Reem is surprising though. He was making alot and hasnt been able to beat the top guys in years.

    Wonder if he was cut or just contract was up and didnt get a new deal done.

    Yeah if it’s the end of his contract then they likely just didn’t renew. He has a high price tag.

    Contract or USADA?
    Surprised to see Reem go more than JDS which is sad since I was a big JDS fan but he has only been declining
    Two less big paydays if they cut them though

    Quite a shame, because although both fighters are past-prime, they were still a good measure for how legit a prospect/contender was. Now the gates have been swung wide open for all the regional-level cans.

    It's all good, Bellator can get them and the shills can claim they have just signed the 2 best Heavyweights in the world outside of Fedor.

    If this is what it takes for them to fight low level scrubs im all for it. Reem and JDS juiced to the gills, destroying cans while getting paid?

    Im happy

    One loss to a killer like Volkov after a decent streak and hes out the rankings??? He's definitely cut and or retired :( . One of the best Heavyweights to do it its a shame to see but hes clearly old and suffered a lot of damage in his career .

    Overeem's made good money in this sport. He should retire.

    Not sure how well off JDS is, but he's seen better days.

    LMFAO @ thinking all those top 15s are better than the REEM.



    But I agree with the "getting fired" theory, kind of weird they will get rid of them like that in rankings.

    Or perhaps it is a ploy in ongoing contract-negotiations. You don't like what is on the table? Well, let us show you how expendable you are by removing you from the rankings.
