Its admittedly a pretty bizarre list. Its hard to come to a general consensus on the top ten p4p fighters. Its also a very subjective and theoretical list in itself so there can never be a wholly realistic top ten. Personally, f I had to rate this list I would give it a 6/10 or a 7/10.
I like seeing Aoki climbing the ranks but I don't think he really deserves his spot yet. I don't really see how Frankie beating BJ puts Aoki above both Frankie and BJ Penn. I understand the logic that they're following but until Aoki fights either man its hard to say that he's better, especially considering the difference in opposition in Japan compared to the UFC (take you're own meaning from that.) A win against Melendez will certainly do a lot more to move him up the rankings in my eyes.
Kinda baffled by Jon Fitch being so high up there. Guess I can't really argue with it, he's a great fighter and is undefeated aside from a decision loss (albeit a lopsided one) to the #2 ranked GSP. I dunno, I just wouldn't have him on my list, let alone up that high
