-Fedor Emelianenko remains at the top as the #1 HW fighter in the world.  Josh Barnett takes an exit stage left because of testing positive for steroids.  Therefore, everyone else moves up a spot.  Randy Couture(#6) will be taking on (#4) ranked Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 102 next week .   #7 Shane Carwin will be taking on #10 Cain Velasquez at UFC 104 for the UFC #1 contender spot.  Brett Rogers holds down the #8 spot with nothing scheduled at the present time.  Cain Velasaquez moves into the #10 spot after the Barnett debacle.
