MMA4Real's October Light Heavyweight MMA Rankings

1. Lyoto Machida

2. Rampage Jackson

3. Rashad Evans

4. Shogun Rua

5. Forrest Griffin

6. Gegard Mousasi

7. Thiago Silva

8. Luis Cane

9. Antonio Roderio Nogueira

10. Rich Franklin

Quick Notes:

-#1 Lyoto Machida will be facing #4 Shogun Rua at UFC 104.

-#2 Rampage Jackson announced his retirement, but I believe that will be short lived.  However, if he doesn't get something scheduled soon...he'll begin to slip in the rankings.

-#3 Rashad Evans could be facing #7 Thiago Silva at UFC 108.

-#9 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will be making his UFC debut at UFC 106 against #8 Luis Cane.

-#10 Rich Franklin(formerly #5) slips down to the tenth spot after getting knocked out by Vitor Belfort at UFC103.  Which caused everyone below him to slide up a spot.
