~ (1)Anderson Silva (33-4) ~

He is arguably the greatest mixed martial artist of all time and the king of the UFC middleweight division. Silva has broken so many records in the UFC and has secured himself a spot in the UFC hall of fame someday. Silva will face the dominant middleweight, Chris Weidman at UFC 162.

~ (2)Chris Weidman (9-0) ~

Weidman is the newest big deal in the UFC middleweight division. Weidman has gone 5-0 in the UFC since joining the organization and has now secured himself as a clear number one contender. He is set to square off against the long time reigning champion Anderson Silva.

~ (3)Vitor Belfort (22-10) ~

Belfort looked incredible in his last outing against the always tough middleweight Michael Bisping, stopping the Brit in the second round via TKO (head kick and punches) at UFC on FOX. Belfort will welcome Luke Rockhold to the UFC in May.

~ (4)Michael Bisping (23-5) ~

Inching his way towards a title shot, Bisping was halted by the TKO from Belfort, and must start from scratch again. Back in the saddle now, Bisping looks to get back to the win column against Alan Belcher at UFC 159.

~ (5)Luke Rockhold (10-1) ~

Making his UFC debut in May, Rockhold will face the long time veteran Vitor Belfort. Watch as Rockhold looks to continue his winning ways inside the octagon.

~ (6)Mark Munoz (12-3) ~

Munoz was making a tear in the UFC middleweight division, winning his last 4 fights until he met Chris Weidman, losing via KO (elbow & punches). After a brief hiatus, Munoz is scheduled back in the octagon to face Tim Boetsch at UFC 162.

~ (7)Yushin Okami (29-7) ~

In Okami’s last outing, he edged out a split decision victory over the heavy hitting middleweight Hector Lombard. Now winning his last 3 fights, Okami is showing everyone he is still a force to be reckoned with.

~ (8)Costas Philippou (12-2, 1 NC) ~

He has won his last 5 fights in the UFC, recently coming off of a TKO (punches) victory over Tim Boetsch at UFC 155. Philippou is scheduled to welcome Ronaldo Souza to the octagon at UFC on FOX 8.

~ (9)Hector Lombard (32-4, 1 1 NC) ~

Yet to put a winning streak together in the UFC, the future seems uncertain for Lombard. This fighter has incredible punching power and seems to be a bad match up for just about any striker. Right now, Lombard is sidelined, but look for the middleweight to take a few heads off before to long from now.

~ (10)Brian Stann (12-6) ~

After losing a stand up war against long time mixed martial artist Wanderlei Silva at UFC on Fuel TV 8, Stann will go back to the drawing board to figure out his future in this sport after losing his last 2 fights in a row.
