    Good call on Lyoto. He also isn't getting any love. I think we also may be forgetting Thiago Silva and Glover. I might be off on Thiago.
    Anderson Silva:
    Best Fighter on the planet.

    I am probably gonna get neg'd but I have to go with Anderson Silva or GSP with Johnny Jones making his way up there in a hurry.
    I watched over a bunch of the Fedor fights over the weekend and there were just too many cans.
    Through no fault of his own Fedor fought in a different era where the overall level of skill wasn't quite there. (excluding his time in Pride)
    So his streak in pride was 14-1. (yea i know most of you hate the NC, but hey it is what it is.) So with that in mind, i gotta give it a toss up with AS, GSP, or Bones.

Say he's facing Cain or JDS who doesn't cut any weight: they'd have maybe 10lbs on him [that's if Jon doesn't bulk up at all to move to HW] but he'd still be sporting more than 7 inches in reach on both. He'd have even more length advantage against Cain because of his height.
    Those are the considerations I was trying to work out in my head, but wasn't really sure on the details.
    Also, to counter my own initial point, one could argue that 10 pounds when you only weigh 145 makes a bigger difference than 10 pounds when you weigh 220 or so.

    Would it even be physically possible for Cain to make that cut though? That question was basically the crux of what I was trying to get at.
    As you pointed out, weight isn't the only issue. Height and reach come into play, which again lends to the idea that your compariosn was valid.

    This I never was in disagreement over.

    what about renan barao? I know most of his wins are against unknowns but still he's got a damn good 20 win streak.

    10lbs is more than 6% of your total mass if you're 145, it's about 6% at 225. 2% might not seem like a huge advantage...but that's why guys cut weight, for even that amount of an edge.

    Would it even be physically possible for Cain to make that cut though? That question was basically the crux of what I was trying to get at.
    If he didn't want to lose musclemass, I don't think he could...but I really have no idea, Dolce is doing craxy shit. I hate it, but it's working for some guys.

    If you ask an average fight fan, they'd tell you that if Bones dominated Cormier at LHW, it would cement his status as p4p champ. 20 inches in length advantage, at virtually the same weight.

    It would be different if Bones was as skilled as Anderson, or Georges or Aldo. If he wasn't covering holes in his game with his length. He's young, he's beaten a host of outstanding opponents, he's got all the time in the world to grow into his frame and keep improving at the rate he's shown so far.

    But in no way is he p4p elite at this point in his young career.

    Has anyone's win streak ended in more embarrassing fashion than Anderson's?

    On a slightly related note, has anyone seen the little punch-out video based on the Silva-Weidman fight?

    Because Cruz got a gift decision against Faber and hasn't done shit since, or anything before that... End of that comment.

    FEDOR

    the guy beat 5 ufc champions over the course of his career and went undefeated for 10 years. prides heavyweight division at the time of fedors reign was clearly better than the ufc´s.

    People point to the hung man choi fight and zulu as fedor fighting scrubs...yea ok they were scrubish but they were tremendously bigger than him and silva fought ccans too such as irvin and bonnar in pointless non title fights. I dont think that is a solid argument in regards against fedors streak not being the GOAT.
