The biggest news in the 205lb class involved two young wrestlers, one on the rise, one due for a fall. #9 Jon Jones cracks the top 10 after crucifying #29 (was #24) Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC on Versus 2. #8 Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal will certainly fall next month after his loss to #15 Rafael "Feijao" Calvacante at Strikeforce: Houston.

USAT/SBN February 2010 MMA Consensus Rankings: Light Heavyweight

USAT/SBN January 2010 MMA Consensus Rankings: Light Heavyweight

Due to hand injuries he sustained at UFC 104, #1 Lyoto Machida won't rematch #2 Mauricio "Shogun" Rua until May's UFC 113. That is a long time for fans to have to wait for one of the most intriguing rematches in MMA history.
