In the wake of UFC 95, WEC 39, and UFC 96, we’ve tidied up the heavyweight, light-heavyweight, middleweight, welterweight, and featherweight top ten lists in our Power Rankings section. Some notable changes…
— Shane Carwin enters the heavyweight list at #9 after taking out his first Top 20 opponent in 69 seconds.
— Keith Jardine leaves the light-heavyweight list (temporarily, at least) after his loss to Quinton Jackson on Saturday. He may have beaten a post-peak Chuck Liddell and a pre-peak Forrest Griffin, but it’s unclear if he has what it takes to beat a high-level opponent when they’re at their best.
— Jose Aldo ascends to #6 on the featherweight list after his fourth brutal stoppage win in the WEC.
