Just kind of odd how similar upsets moved one guy to the #1 spot and the other upset winner doesn't even pass up the guy he just beat.
1. becuase matt serra hadnt lost within 8 months
2. serra also became champ (plays a role in it)
3. there was no one else who would have been appropriate (gsp just lost, hughes just lost to GSP, no one else was proven)
4. forrest/sokodjoue tie
7. lil nog
looks crazy but forrest can't be at one and chuck can not be top 5 anymore
