I don't know their method, but some P4P rankings, Sherdog's being the biggest example, are based on division dominance, not that "If they were the same weight" shit.

If it's about division dominance, yes, she deserves it.

Iíll bounce from place to place, in your face. You wonít know what hit you.
Youíll just be standing around and Iíll knock you straight to the ground.

Hendricks is hurt, fat and shouldnt even be the title holder right now. I question why he's even ranked in the top 10 when he's not even the best in his division. Barao can't make weight and was clowned and finished in his last fight. Clearly Ronda should be ranked ahead of them.

And that's what makes the rankings suck. It should be based on raw facts (who beat who) and not on subjective opinions from journalists that may or may not know the fighters personally.

It makes no sense when unranked fighter A beats 4th-ranked fighter B without even making it into the rankings afterwards but with fighter B only dropping maybe two or three positions in the rankings, solely because fighter B is more popular than fighter A.

Wake me up before you go

Her presence on the list - at all - severely damages the credibility and validity of the entire construct.

The concept of having female fighters on the p4p is ridiculous. What are we saying - that if Barao was a 135 pound woman that Rousey would beat him?

Then again p4p in general is silly so maybe its fine
