    Which do you choose?

    For the longest time I felt it was Anderson without question, because Fedor's last top fight was against Cro Cop in 2005. But, I think you could easily make the argument that Fedor is the number 1 P4P guy again, simply because he completely destroyed a top-10 ranked HW that is much larger than him through superior power and skill, and that is what P4P is about.

    So until Fedor and Anderson fight again, I am going with Fedor being the best on the planet right now.

    BJ Penn has looked very impressive and been dominant against the top guys in his division

    I said post who you think it is if you choose other :mamoru:

    Fact of the matter is that BJ hasn't been as dominant as either of these guys...his losses to Hughes and GSP weren't too long ago

    Fedor and Silva never had to fight guys like Matt Hughes and GSP

    Win or lose..Bj Penn always shows that he is one of the most wellrounded fighters technique wise, on the planet

    false, P4P is winning decisively in multiple weight classes.

    bj penn is the closest thing

    he hasn't won a fight at 170 lbs in a long time

    Fedor is also 230 lbs, beating guys 30 lbs heavier than him

    :wtf: is P4P? Everyone is in the same weight division. BJ Penn rocks in his division, Silva in his, and Fedor in his. If we are talking about body fat pounds, Sherk is pretty amazing. I think the phrase pound for pound is used too loosely in MMA.

    Yeah, technically, you can get 3 more weight divisions out of the HW division if you went for the whole 14lb difference between each weight class. What makes Anderson Silva going up to fight James Irvin so much different from Fedor fighting Tim Sylvia who outweighs by at least 40lbs after weigh ins other than a weight class title?

    Edit: Even though I said technically they could, its fucking retarded and they shouldn't btw.

    I still think it's Anderson Silva

    I think if anyone can beat Fedor it might be Anderson as crazy as it sounds

    Fedor is hyped up, but he is a really good fighter, top 5 but not the best pound for pound.

    If he losses his gut he could get down to 205 where Silva will whoop his ass.

    Silva has lost 4 times. 1 DQ, 2 Submissions, 1 decision (his first fight).


    Tim Sylvia is a retard, he got where he is with a little luck on his part.
     
  25. Humungus pound for pound rankings:

    1. Anderson Silva
    2. GSP
    3. Fedor
    4. BJ Penn

    This is ignoring weight classes under lightweight.
