I know I know....why in the world do you have BJ Penn as the #1 LW in the world when he lost to Frankie Edgar?  First of all, it's of my opinion that Edgar didn't win that fight although it was a close contest.  Secondly, because it was a close fight I can't have Edgar jump from 7th to #1 on that performance. 

Adjustments were made for the Melendez/Aoki fight.  Kawajiri and Sherk have been inactive for quite a while, so if they don't get busy soon...they'll be dropped.
