Yea but shogun was number one, so he should still be top 10, and Hendo is back at 205 in a few months.

Guess what.. Griffin is the champ. He beat Rampage a few months ago, google it.

The belt is there for a reason, because you can say what you want about the other 9 fighters, that's up for debate but whoever holds the belt, NO MATTER WHAT...is the champion!

Haha, I know who the champion is, but I also saw how he "became" champion and Im sure that lots of people (not the majority ofcourse) would agree that Rampage's stock is jus as high as Griffins, if not higher.

However impressive Cane's was, I agree, I don't think he's top ten yet. He hasn't proven himself against highly legit fighters. Soukoudjou is rather one dimensional. However, I was very impressed with Cane's ability to exploit that. It's hard to deal with an explosive fighter that you have in Soukoudjou. I definitely believe however, that Rich Franklin deserves a spot on the top of 205 (if that is indeed where he intends to fight) I think he would steamroll most of the fighters who I do consider top 10 material. As for the Griffin Jackson thing, Griffin definitely outfought Rampage, after soundly defeating Shogun. Regardless of whether Rampage is capable of beating him, he didn't. Griffin is definitely #1 right now. I think a more accurate list is:

1: Forrest Griffin
2: Quinton Jackson
3: Shogun Rua
4: Dan Henderson
5: Rich Franklin
6: Rashad Evans
7: Lyoto Machida
8: Thiago Silva
9: Keith Jardine
10: Wanderlei Silva

9 and 10 was hard to decide on the order. But I don't think Chuck is top 10 anymore. He's lost a lot lately, doesn't seem to have the confidence which makes a good fighter great, and his game's weakness has been exposed by his last couple of matches. I do think however, that Chuck is #11, even though he beat Silva I think Silva can beat more opponents than Chuck can. I think his defeat of Jardine proved that.

Edit: I think a lot of people forget that Hendo has only lost to Anderson Silva and Rampage in the UFC. He's no where near as low as some people have put him. This guy can tool most people in the UFC. Also, I think people are rating Machida too high. He hasn't really fought top UFC fighters yet. Tito Ortiz was his strongest challenge. With Rashad Evans you can say he beat Liddell and Bisping. He also beat a before-his-prime Rich Franklin. I have to see Machida defeat someone on this list I have above him to become top 5.
