- #1 Fedor Emelianenko stays the king after KTFO Brett Rogers

-#2 Brock Lesnar is out of commission for now.

-#3 Frank Mir will be facing unranked Cheick Kongo at UFC 107.

-#4 Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will return to action after February and possibly face # 9 Cain Velasquez

-#6 Brett Rogers moved up a slot with his performance against Fedor Emelianenko and also with the departure of Randy Couture down to the LHW division.

-#7 Junior dos Santos and #8 Cain Velasquez move up a slot as a result of Couture dropping down in weight.

-#9 Alistair Overeem moves back into the top ten(I know he's been fighting scrubs in MMA, but he's been doing well enough in K-1 that I think it's safe to say he's top ten in MMA with his overall skill set).
