No changes in the rankings even though Dan Henderson hit Michael Bisping with a dragon punch at UFC 100!  #1 Anderson Silva will be taking on #4 ranked LHW Forrest Griffin at UFC 101.  #2 Dan Henderson just destroyed Michael Bisping at UFC 100 to hold the #2 spot.  #3 Nate Marquardt will be taking on #9 Demian Maia at UFC 102.  #4 Gegard Mousasi will be moving up to LHW to fight #7 ranked LHW Babalu Sobral at Affliction 3.  #5 Yushin Okami is on the shelf with an injury currently.  #6 Yoshihiro Akiyama won against Alan Belcher at UFC 100.  #7 Jorge Santiago will be taking on unranked Vitor Belfort at Affliction 3 in a big MW fight.  Belfort would crack the top ten with a win there.  #8 Robbie Lawler holds his ground with nothing scheduled.  #10 Thales Leites will be taking on Alessio Sakara at UFC 101.  Some big fights coming up on the horizon with quite a few guys knocking on the door of the top ten.
