Hypothetical: Jake Shields beats GSP; how does this affect p4p?

It's a long shot, but I thought Shields beating Hendo was a longshot too. If Shields manages to pull it off how far does GSP drop p4p, and where does Shields go?

It depends on how it happens and whether or not Frankie beats Gray. GSP wouldn't fall out of the top 4 and AS would still be number one.

Shields should be No.1 "If" it happens, Anderson No.2 and GSP no.3

Andersons been on a tear but beating GSP convincingly would be huge.

Shields would be ranked 3rd behind Aldo at 2nd and Silva at 1st.
While GSP stays in 4th.
They cant make Shields any higher than Aldo and Silva even though GSP was ranked 2nd because he hasn't defended his belt, but they cannot rank him any lower than GSP so 3rd would be appropriate.

Top 3 Best P4P List:
1. Anderson "The Spider" Silva
2. Jose Aldo
3. Georges "Rush" St. Pierre

Proud Supporter of:
FW- Jose Aldo
LW- Clay Guida
WW- Thiago Alves
MW- Anderson Silva
LH- Lyoto Machida
HW- Junior dos Santos

I'm a big Aldo fan but he hasn't faced the level of competition that would warrant him being in the top 3. He shouldn't be above Shields or Frankie right now and you could argue Bones and Fitch should be ahead of him.

Forget about the p4p. It would rob us of the super fight that should happen!!!
