my list why batman would best superma....er I mean p4p

1) Anderson Silva
2) GSP
3) Cain
4) BJ Penn (a true example of the meaning P4P)
5) JDS
6) JBJ (a bit early, but plenty of potential
7) Rashad
8) Frankie Edgar
9) Jose Aldo (also a bit early)
10) Lyoto Machida

Also I know the term P4P gets argued like there is no tomorrow, but the true meaning of pound 4 pound is "all things considered equal". In other words if lets say if Aldo fought Cain and they would be of close weight and size, from their skills alone who would win? Being p4p means you would be able to compete and maybe dominate in any division by skill alone if other measures such as height and weight did not apply.

How the hell do you rank Jon Fitch over BJ Penn pound for pound when before BJ gassed he was beating Fitch and Fitch is a considerably larger guy.

P4p rankings are nothing more than opinion. Made up by bloggers, completely useless. null. Chael said it best.

Heres a list for you:

1. Cain Velasquez
2. Jon Jones
3. Anderson Silva
4. GSP
5. Frankie Edgar
6. Jose Aldo
7. Dominic Cruz

Basically all of the Sherdog guys are morons. One of them went insane over that ref separating Bowles and Mizugaki even though Bowles had stopped handfighting for 40 seconds and when he was warned to stay active he didn't move an inch and just stared at the ref for ten seconds.

Fitch hasn't won a fight in 11 months, has never held a title, and is refusing to fight the toughest matchup for him in the division outside of GSP in Kos. There is no justification for him even being top 15 at this point.

Frankie should be above Aldo they basically weigh the same and Frankie is fighting bigger and vastly superior competition.

Jake Shields at 7 seriously can they suck the dicks of Caeser Gracie fighters any more(Gilbert over Cruz LOLZ). He has lost the actual fight his last two times out and only won rounds against GSP because he illegally blinded him with those open hand girl slaps he calls striking.

GSP above Andy is basically a joke. GSP has had the opportunity to fight Anderson and refused and he only weighs a couple pounds less than him.

Anderson is the GOAT and in 35 years all of the great fighters will be measured against him while GSP is a footnote in the history of the sport. Who is going to be waxing poetic about a guy who dry humped or jabbed people for 5 rounds? GSP's performances have been mostly forgettable while Andy has been putting on ******* epic displays of dominance and heart. Ali isn't the GOAT of boxing because he had the highest win percentage it is because he did a lot of great and memorable things. Sherdog writers are that guy who argues for Marciano over Ali just for the purpose of being a contrarian douche.

BJ made a career out of being the smaller guy. BJ has tested himself against bigger guys, how many others on that list can say the same? Haters gonna hate.

I dont understand the argument of "GSP fights in a tougher weight class", because how do you know? yeah they may have been bigger "names" there but that doesnt mean its a better division, and to negate that argument anyway Anderson has fought and beat a top 5 opponent in the LHW division. Completly putting his reputation on line for no reason at all other than he wants to prove he is the best fighter in the world. GSP wont even trade with grapplers just because theres a slight chance he may get caught.
