    I would assume that being a pound for pound strongest would mean that they are at least the best in their division. I think BJ Penn would take this, followed by matt hughes.

    err...meant brute strength, like how rampage can pick up people like rag dolls and barely works out, and how hughes can lift people up whenever he chooses

    and lifting weights isn't the only way to gain strength. That's why I find it funny when you guys are saying he's the strongest pound for pound because he slams people with "natural strength"

    Nothing makes sense about that.

    A lot of people's lifestyles give them a rediculous amount of strength such as farmers and other people that do manual labour on a constant basis.

    i.e. Matt Hughes although he lifts as well.

    I really don't think that Rampage is as strong as he is without doing any kind of activity that would improve his absolute strength. He may not lift weights, but he may do something else that could be comparable such as some GPP on a frequent basis.
