The SBNation rankings panel has collected their votes for the month of November on the best featherweights in the world. The last time the SBNation panel gave the featherweight division a look was back in February. Since then a lot of things have changed and a lot of things have stayed the same. Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar, Ricardo Lamas, and Chad Mendes still make up the top 4 spots.

With a dominant win over Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57, Frankie Edgar is back in the running for a shot at featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Although Edgar has only made three appearances since losing to Aldo in February 2013, he's stopped Swanson and BJ Penn in back-to-back outings. The Answer also arguably came closer to dethroning Aldo than any other UFC title challenger. Could this victory over Swanson be enough to get Edgar back into the pound-for-pound rankings? Here are the latest off read news >>

Kelvin Gastelum's 1st round stoppage of Jake Ellenberger at UFC 180 was enough to convince the UFC rankings panel that he is a top 10 welterweight. I'm sounding like a broken record here, but this was yet another UFC PPV lacking in ranked fighters, with only the top 3 fights on the main card plus Jessica Eye vs. Leslie Smith on the prelims featuring at least one fighter in the top 15. Eye/Smith evidently didn't change either woman's position in the bantamweight order, but the co-main event betwe read news >>

The UFC was very busy this weekend, hosting events in Australia and Brazil. At UFC Fight Night 55, Luke Rockhold submitted Michael Bisping in the second round.
