| | Thoughts on Dana's antics and the best P4P:
Dana is up to his antics again. He goes on a rant about how Silva is the best..yada yada...Well, I guess if Dana says A Silva is the best P4P than..he is. Ya..right.
Dana is full of himself and thinks his opinion is fact.. He says that Silva deserves to be the best P4P over Gsp. Dana thoughts are a little distorted thinking about Money instead of Facts. He obviously can't say Fedor is the best and we all know why (different org).
Ever since Silva showed up to the weakest division EVER he cleaned house. They build up the fighters in the division like they're amazing every chance they get. Even Franklin...he beat Tanner, shamrock and the crow and was deemed the best there is at 185. now they're doing it again! It seems all of the sudden that Leites, Maia, Cote, and Lutter were amazing fighters! Dana has fallen victim to Soares and Silva's antics regarding HIS title. Notice how there hasn't been a rematch for Silva in almost 4 years! no wonder he hasn't lost in so long. Fight them once and move on.
They really managed to mess up the division. Anderson in my eyes has avoided rematches seemlessly. Dana just doesn't see it. Now Vitor gets to drop so much weight and coupled with the fact that he hasn't fought in over a year...he will be weak and rusty.
Another example of how clouded Dana's vision is here....A Silva wont move up to LHW so GSP has to move up to 185. Please. Why not have anderson move down to 170. The reason...He can't! He will lose his power and be weak at that weight. The guy walks around at 225! So have Gsp move up? Dana brings in Shields to fight Gsp? Why not bring him in to fight Silva? Why...Shields would dry hump a victory easily against Silva. The bottom line is Gsp would be a midget at 185!
I understand that P4P is very subjective but here's my list and why for each fighter.
my reasoning for this:
Gsp has the stiffest competition from the start of his career. He gladly gives rematches and still Dominates in the rematches. He allows the number one contenders to get their chance without whining about who gets their shot. He has fought the who's who at 170...and realistically if you Look to other MMA orgs and find somebody who can compete with this guy? I just don't see anybody anywhere that can make the fight competetive.
The name Fedor says it all. He has beaten the who's who also. But I feel that there are a lot of questions about fedor fighting the New breed of skilled fighters that we will probably never see. Pride had some good fighters for him but that's all we can compare him to. Fedor has gladly given rematches and after his next Victory* he will move up to the number one spot again.
Now for Dana's golden boy, Silva. where to start.
A Silva is a Beast but doesn't deserve the top spot and here's why:
He doesn't give rematches. It's that simple. He has clouded Dana's mind so much that Soares says jump and Dana says "HOW HIGH?" The UFC has always built up medeocre fighters. they did it with Franklin as champ and Now Silva. Franklin's competition was the Crow, Shamrock and Tanner. who all of the sudden were amazing fighters..Please. Now with Silva he fights Cote, Leben, maia and Leites and they are amazing fighters. Please. The Last man Silva has given a rematch to is the person he took the title from..in 2007! Since then it's been a soap opera. Silva has manages to waive his magic wand and Poof....All the contenders are gone. They systematically have eliminated themselves from contention. Hendo, marquart and Sonnen no rematches. Suites Silva fine...he's just Dance around the ring and avoid fighting. He did it with cote, Leites, maia. And to make it worse..He get's credit for destoying the sandman...that's just laughable. That's Like Gsp moving up and fighting Lutter!
Sorry for the long rant but there is truth to it.

LHW-Shogun, Tito, Mousasi. Rampage
MW-Hendo, Sonnen, Mayhem M
WW-GSP, C Condit>Nick diaz, Fitch wonderboy?
