I think he became top 10 when Josh Barnett got dropped from the rankings do to inactivity.
Edit: Yeah, here it is:
10. Ben Rothwell (Pictures) (29-5-0)
While Rothwell is unproven against top competition, the 26-year-old Miletich product is riding a 13-fight winning streak, including wins over former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez (Pictures) and recently crowned IFL champion Roy Nelson (Pictures). Considering that his relationship with the IFL looks a tad rocky, many are calling for Rothwell to take the jump in competition in 2008.
