I don't get how u can rank fitch,aldo,gsp, Jones all higher than silva...
GSP has fitch,bj penn,diaz
Jones has- machida,rampage,forrest,henderson,silva, pretty much the enitre lhw
Silva-has who okami, then sonnen (who's career is unsure right now)...all he has to do is beat okami in which he should and he has cleared out the mw division AGAIN.
Fitch has dominated everyone he has fought outside of GSP. If GSP wasn't there he would be champ. There is no other fighter in any other division who would CLEARLY be champ if the current champ was not there. GSP already beat Fitch and Penn in dominant fashion therefore they are not threats according to my system. Aldo has dominated everyone who he has fought with the exception of Hominick and I mentioned Kenny and Mendes as his moderate threats. I can't honestly see how its possible to put any MAJOR threats for Jones.
Basically this ranking system puts everything in perspective of who is the safest in the near future and Silva has a brutally obvious weakness against wrestlers. His jiu jitsu will only save him for so long.
A ranking system that has John Fitch above Anderson Silva is clearly falwed.
A man who has been tooled by the champ in his division.
4 finishes, 10 decisions wins in the UFC
Has only fought in the UFC at WW.
Just went to a draw against a LW in which many people thought he lost.
Hasn't beaten any champions or former champions.
0 fight win streak.
Tooled the former champ twice, finishing him with ease.
Has finished 11 out of 13 of his UFC opponents.
Has fought at MW and LHW, beating champions at both weights.
Just came off a win via spectacular KO.
Has beaten 4 world champions across 2 weight classes.
13 fight winning streak (longest in UFC history).
Now. Can you seriosly tell me that your ranking system works?
Jon Fitch has defeated every worthwhile WW with the exception of GSP and thats what matters. The BJ Penn being a major threat is accurate ill admit that I overlooked that obvious aspect. So add 3 points to his total and replace him. But I don't feel that Silva has a better chance at holding 185 than aldo, jones, and GSP do at holding their respective divisions.
I think this list shows a lack of awareness about what P4P means and how much of a threat challengers actually are. Jim Miller lost to Frankie Edgar when he had basically no skills outside of wrestling. The HW one is particularly laughable. Also where is Cruz shouldn't he be Number 1 or 2 based on your "system".
You do know Jim Miller was in the exact same boat, correct? It was millers 6th professional fight and it was Frankie's 5th professional fight. They were both freshly out of their college wrestling careers. Both fighters have evolved tremendously since then.
Cruz has Faber and Johnson as major threats along with a shitload of upcoming 135 lb talent. He's in the worse shape than any other champ at holding his title in my opinion.
