UFC 156 Results: Top 10 Light Heavyweights in the UFC
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports
UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon "Bones" Jones.

The ever-shifting amoeba that is the UFC light heavyweight division continued to morph on Saturday night during the UFC 156 event which featured a bout between two top-10 stars—Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Evans (-345) came into the bout as the favorite, but was never quite able to get anything going. His typically smooth style wasn't working for him against Nogueira, who played into Evans' perceived strength on the feet and tagged him multiple times throughout the bout. 

In the end it was the underdog Nogueira (+265) who came out with the victory by judges' decision.

The fight, of course, changed the course of the UFC light heavyweight division, so let's take a look at the 10 best UFC light heavyweights after Saturday night's UFC 156  event.
