As far as who is the P4P best, I'm not sure how anybody could clearly seperate Silva and GSP. Both have absolutely decimated some legendary fighters (one by stopping them, the other by completely outclassing them round after round after round).

You're the one who said he subs the grapplers and outstrikes the strikers.

And Im sure the fights would've been alot closer If Anderson wasnt "playing It safe" and wanting to stand all the time.

You cannot find out the P4P list by eliminating weight classes.

P4P doesn't mean "who could win in a fight against everyone" because then people like Joezay Aldo would never be on the list, since they could never beat Cain or JDS etc.


P4P is indeed an abstract, because it is only perception. It's basically saying that a pound of Fighter A has more fight in it than a pound of Fighter B.


It will never be tested, and can never be proved. The only P4P list that will EVER be 100% accurate is BobbyCooper's.

Here's how I view this P4P nonsense.
Imagine a special world where Fighter A (Aldo) can go fight Fighter (B) Lesnar, and In this puff the magic dragon world both fighters weigh In at exactly the same magical 200lbs limit and they both they take their strengts and weaknesses with them.

So, Brock would still curl up like a little girl once Aldo punches him In the face. Thus Aldo Is ranked higher than Lesnar....IMO

Take GSP vs Anderson. I see GSP being STRONGER than Anderson and will use his superior Wrestling and win decisively at the judges. Thus GSP Is above Anderson on MYP4P list.

People seem to judge P4P on who they have beaten at their respective classes and make a list from that point, which I never quite understood. People In weak division would be ranked much higher than guys In tougher classes. So I always put A vs B when I do these stupid lists.

ahh right i forgot you have to be the best in the world at everything to be no1, just because i said he subbed grapplers doesnt mean i meant every grappler he has faced. Stop picking a weak pointless argument to try and brush over the main point i was getting at.

Any true MMA fan could see logic in having any of the top 4 fighters on this list being number one.We all know GSP fights safe these days because he does not wanna lose his belt.The other three are probably more vicious strikers, but no argument from me about GSP being number one in pound for pound.This is from someone who always cheers for him to lose, so my post is unbiased.
