Yea I was thinking about what you just mentioned Benn And I started to wonder if guys like Rich Franklin and GSP shouldn't be included in the P4P rankings or should get a little negative against them since they cut so much weight and are both just huge compared to their opponents. It is something to think about. Would both of them be less effective without their size.

thats very true, honestly i never thought of it that way.

Then again look at it this way... Fedor is about 240pounds, and probably at 12% or more bodyfat. Cut him down to size but keep that same muscle to fat ratio and put him into a 170pound division, even though hes got great skill, one of the things he relies on is strength and thats gone.
