Obviously not number 1. But he's getting into that zone where he starts to look unbeatable. Kind of like barao.

Where I draw the line is the inane presumption that being able to beat someone, solely because you are bigger than them, makes you a BETTER FIGHTER, which is fallacious. It makes you a bigger fighter.

P4p means, who wins, when size ISN'T a factor, in which case "oh p4p rankings don't matter who cares I don't have an argument LELELELELE"

Or "oh he wouldn't have the same skills if he was bigger!!!" when he absolutely would; he would just perform them slower.That's because you don't have a snowball's chance in hell of actually winning this argument.

Now, I am going out to dinner with my family.

Hope you enjoy the fights tonight!
P4P is pure fantasy, and engaging in discussions about "growing" a fighter is absurd, and you have no clue what you are talking about, nobody does.You are trying to extrapolate how someone's body would move if they were taller, bigger, and heavier, as if that is some minor thing, that doesn't involve countless factors, not to mention the " wiring" of the central and peripheral nervous systems at the heart of everything. All of those factors are inextricable from who that person is as a fighter. In reality, size isn't some nuisance variable that can be controlled for, and pretending that it is, usually is the result of not wanting reality to be what it is.
