Best pound for pound mma fighters
There is always argument when people and fans are discussing pound for pound mma fighters,but you will always find the same fighters in the top 10 list just in a different order,what follows is the most accurate up-to date version of the pound for pound top mma fighters.
The bantamweight champion of the wec has a fantastic record of 35-1 and looks unbeatable at this weight.This lad is talented
Jon Fitch may have been outclassed in his 5 round war with GSP but after the GSP vs BJ fight he has made me look again and made his performance against GSP quite good as in he lasted all 5rounds despite some vicious punishment by the welterweight champ.After another good display recently against akhiro gono at ufc 94 means he can start climbing up the devision again
Kenny Florian's maui thai skills have developed at such a rate that he is now one of the best and a definate lightweight contender to Bj's crown and possibly the next in line for a shot.
Bj Penn was totally outclassed at ufc 94 but too a heavier and more talented GSP so he should not feel ashamed.He is world class at lightweight and i think even Kenny Florian will have his hands full there,if he concentrates at lightweight and doesn't move back up again then he will rule the division much like Anderson Silva has at middleweight.
6:Quinton Rampage Jackson
One of my favourite fighters "Rampage" had slipped after losing the LHW crown to Forrest Griffin, but after a definitive win to his arch nemesis Wanderlei Silva at ufc 92 he has climbed the rankings and if he manages to beat Keith Jardin at ufc 96 Next month then he will face the winner of Evans Vs Machida and a chance to regain the belt which he thinks is rightfully his.
The current LHW champion and undefeated in his mma career,He has really
impressed me with his defeat of Chuck Liddell and his title win over
Forrest Griffin unfortunatly he was outclassed and ko'd for the first time in his career when Lyoto Machida took his belt on may 23rd and is now scheduled to face rampage as they both become coaches on next season of the ultiate fighter
In my opinion the best LHW in the world at the moment,He is the most elusive fighter and for a lot of people this makes for a dull fight but he always ends explosively and is always looking for the finish despite the fact it looks like he is running away half the time,He has now beaten rashad evans and has becoe the lhw champ,i cant see him going anywhere for a while now,he outclassed evans.
Well what can i say he has cleared out the middleweight division and looks as unbeatable as any other fighter i can think of,he has good ground skills world class Maui Thai and if he gets beat it will be down to being complacent,every fight he has is worth watching as you know its gonna end i devastating fashion.
2:Georges St Pierre
In his destruction of Bj Penn he looked outstanding and moved up a place in the rankings ahead of Silva,He has a tough task ahead with Thiago Alves but if he can get past that test i cant see him vacating that welterwieght title for quite some time.
The best heavyweight in the world which he proved by brutally ko'ing Former ufc champ Andrei Arlovski.We can only hope that he comes to the ufc one day and rules.29-1 record speaks for itself
