No changes since the last ranking came out, but there have been some fights announced since last time.  -#1 BJ Penn will take on #4 ranked Kenny Florian at UFC 101 for the UFC lightweight title.  #2 Eddie Alvarez doesn't have anything scheduled for now.  #3 Tatsuya Kawajiri just lost a K-1 rules match, so I won't let that affect his MMA ranking.  #5 Sean Sherk will be taking on Gleison Tibau at UFC 103 in Dallas.  #6 Shinya Aoki will fight Vitor "Shaolin" Riberio at DREAM 10.  #7 Gray Maynard will face Roger Huerta at UFN 19.  #10 Diego Sanchez now awaits the winner of Kenny Florian/BJ Penn.
