Or if Georges actually managed to finish a fight with a fighter 6'1 and an 80" reach? again, dana would be PRgasming all over the internets.

    Aldo is my #1 p4p fighter.

    Agree. It should be clear as night and day that Aldo is the #1 p4p fighter right now. I was starting to put him above Anderson already before Anderson lost. Aldo's overall skillset is just plain better than Anderson, GSP, Jones, Cain, etc. Unlike the others he doesn't have a glaring weakness. His striking offensively from boxing to kicks, and defensively from his head movement to weaving and ducking, his takedowns and takedown defense, and his ground and pound is some of the best in the game. Really his only weakness has been his cardio in the last couple of rounds and honestly the only time I've seen that exploited was against Hominick, a fight that he had his hardest weight cut coming off an injury. Against Florian and Frankie, two guys with amazing cardio, he still beat both of them in the 5th round.

    Can't wait to see him eventually go to 155. He has the best shot from any of the champions to be a dual weight class champion.

    Really...just imagine how hard dana would be be gushing if Georges, Anderson or Jones fought 3 rounds with a broken foot and still kicked the shit out of a bigger fighter...literally with the broken foot in question.

    I know this has been discussed before, but I would greatly appreciate a quick synopsis on how you "normalize" fighters across weight classes to evaluate P4P rankings.

    Thanks

    I don't know. But if it does have something to do with it, might be time for the lightweight division.

    Aldo hospitalized with kidney stones

    Dr. Marcio Tannure, the UFC’s doctor in Brazil, told MMAFighting.com that the UFC featherweight champion was taken to Copa D’Or hospital in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro and diagnosed with kidney stones Tuesday. UOL first reported the news.

    "I learned about this problem with Andre (Pederneiras, Aldo’s coach)," Tannure told MMAFighting.com on Tuesday. "He had renal calculus (kidney stones) before. He needs to send me the results of the exams so I can check it. Andre told me it’s not serious, and he probably already expelled the stones."

    So the weight cut. Not enough water? Cormier had kidney issues when he was cutting weight, I wonder if it's similar. I really think it might be time for him to take a long hard look at Lightweight.

    Bingo. Dehydration with not enough water in system to dilute abundance of calcium.
