Hey all, I realized it's been too long since my last rankings came out so here they are in all their (brief) glory:

Pound for Pound:

1. Fedor Emelianenko (up one after Silva's poor performance last week)
2. Anderson Silva
3. Georges St. Pierre
4. BJ Penn
5. Antonio Rodrigo Nogeuira
6. Urijah Faber
7. Miguel Torres
8. Forrest Griffin (up one with Gomi losing ground at lightweight)
9. Lyoto Machida (into the top ten with Fitch remaining inactive and Machida's record still 13-0)
10. Shinya Aoki (rebounding nicely in Sept gets him on the list esp after moving up in weight)

Also receiving consideration: Takanori Gomi, Lyoto Machida, Quinton Jackson, Rashad Evans, Eddie Alvarez, Thiago Alves

1. Fedor Emelianenko
2. Anotonio Rodrigo Nogeuira
3. Andrei Arlovski
4. Josh Barnett
5. Randy Couture

* Werdum falls off after his loss to Junior Dos Santos - Couture makes it back on with his fight coming up in two weeks. Yes he has a lot to prove but I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Light Heavyweight:
1. Forrest Griffin
2. Lyoto Machida
3. Rashad Evans
4. Quinton Jackson
5. Thiago Silva

* Liddell and Rua fall off after Liddell's loss to Evans and Rua remaining inactive until 09
