 This month saw the top 3 remain in their respective spots.  However, with Gegard Mousasi being moved up to the LHW division, we saw Okami, Akiyama, Santiago, Lawler, and Maia move up one spot.  Also, Thales Leites drops from the top ten after his loss to Alessio Sakara.  This allowed Sonnen and Belfort to creep into the top ten.  Some huge matchups coming up.  Okami will be taking on Sonnen at UFC 104.  Maia takes on Marquardt next week at UFC 102.  Vitor Belfort will be taking on highly ranked LHW Rich Franklin at a catchweight of 195lbs at UFC 103.
