Weight Class:

Jose Aldo is the valedictorian of the featherweight class, and it would have been fun to see him in Philadelphia against undefeated No. 3 ranked Chad Mendes. Instead, Mendes will take on the ever-game Rani Yahya at UFC 133, and Aldo will rest in hopes to cure some lingering injuries from the Mark Hominick fight (and before). Meanwhile Hatsu Hioki retains his No. 2 spot with his second-round disposal of Donald Sanchez in Japan.

Kenny Florian will make his debut against Diego Nunes at UFC 131, and upstart Dustin Poirier returns to action after his big win over Josh Grispi on that same June 11 card in Vancouver.
