<B>8. Gilbert Melendez: <B> While the fans beg for a move to the UFC, we know we won't see "El Nino" inside the Octagon soon. He'll defend his belt against Pat Healy on September 29.
<B>7. Dan Henderson: <B> A true pound for pound warrior, Hendo has wins against quality opponents in 3 weight classes in the last 3 years, including a win over Fedor Emelianenko at heavyweight. He'll next face Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 151.
<B>6. Ben Henderson: <B> In two short weeks, Henderson will defend his newly acquired UFC lightweight belt against Frankie Edgar in a rematch of their close contest at UFC 144. Henderson is undefeated inside the UFC Octagon since moving over from the WEC.
<B>5. Dominick Cruz: <B> While Cruz heals his injuries, the UFC crowned an interim bantamweight champion at UFC 149 when Renan Barao defeated Urijah Faber via unanimous decision. When Cruz will return is still a mystery though word from his camp is his injury is healing nicely.
<B>4. Jose Aldo: <B> Jose Aldo will return from injury when he faces Eric Koch at UFC 153 in Rio. Aldo has made 8 consecutive title defenses between the WEC and UFC.
<B>3. Georges St. Pierre: <B> UFC President Dana White recently said that St. Pierre is on schedule with his rehab and will likely face Carlos Condit at UFC 154. Should everything go as planned for the champ, he'll return to the Octagon in November after being sidelined for nearly 17 months.
<B>2. Jon Jones: <B> Jon Jones has been a wrecking machine inside the UFC Octagon, finishing 6 of his last 7 fights. He'll look to continue his dominance inside the cage when he fights Dan Henderson at UFC 151 in September.
<B>1. Anderson Silva: <B> Anderson Silva once again proved why he is the baddest man on the planet at UFC 148. The champ finished a very game Chael Sonnen in the 2nd round, extending his winning streak to 16 straight fights. Who he'll fight next is the topic of much debate, with names like Chris Weidman, Alan Belcher, Mike Bisping, Tim Boetsch, Brian Stann, and even GSP all being mentioned.
