-#1 ranked Lyoto Machida is scheduled to defend his title against #4 ranked Shogun Rua at UFC 104..  #2 ranked Rampage Jackson is scheduled to face #3 ranked Rashad Evans in December.  #5 ranked Keith Jardine will be facing unranked Thiago Silva at UFC 102 next week.  Babalu Sobral drops from the rankings after getting destroyed by Gegard Mousasi who is now #8.  #6 Rich Franklin will face unranked Vitor Belfort at UFC 103.  #9 Luis Cane doesn't have anything scheduled right now.   #10 ranked Antonio Rogerio Nogueira currently don't have anything scheduled as of now, but is rumored to be joining the UFC soon.  Basically Rua, Jardine, and Franklin moved up a spot with Forrest Griffin getting destroyed by Anderson Silva at UFC 101.  I would rank Silva as a LHW, but I think he's going to fight at 185 still.
