-#1 ranked Lyoto Machida is scheduled to defend his title against #5 ranked Shogun Rua later in the year.  #2 ranked Rampage Jackson is scheduled to face #3 ranked Rashad Evans later in the year as well.  #4 Forrest Griffin will be taking on #1 Middleweight Anderson Silva at UFC 101.  #6 ranked Keith Jardine will be facing unranked Thiago Silva at UFC 102.  #7 ranked Babalu Sobral will be facing Gegard Mousasi(who's ranked as a MW) at Affliction 3.  #8 Rich Franklin just defeated previously ranked Wanderlei Silva at UFC 99.  #9 Luis Cane and #10 ranked Antonio Rogerio Nogueira currently don't have anything scheduled as of now.  I would love to see Luis Cane fight Rich Franklin next though, as that would be a very intriguing fight in my opinion.
