Note: Gegard Mousasi is not ranked with the middleweight because of his intent to move up and his failure to settle on a weight class.  Frank Trigg, who would be ranked will be moving to the UFC welterweight division.  Rich Franklin is headed to light heavyweight for an indefinite period.  Jake Shields could enter in this division once he settles in a weight class and he would certainly fall into the top 10.  Wanderlei Silva enters the middleweight division and is ranked based on the body of work through his career and a competitive showing against Rich Franklin at UFC 99 at 195 lbs.
