So, now we're talking "dedicated top amateurs on the path to becoming pro".

That's great. Keep on supporting me.

well amateur is a broad range.

Are you taking about guys who are 'pre' going pro. As in amateur athletes competing in the sport. Or are you talking about a typical shertard picked off his couch to fight?

Well I have 2 things to say about that.

1) P4P is 100% hypothetical nonsense in the first place and is akin to arguing who would win between Superman and The Hulk.

2) Ronda is in a unique position compared to anyone else in P4P where the answer is NOT hypothetical and can indeed be tested in reality. She weighs 135 and so does Renan Barao. They are both on P4P list. You do not need to close your eyes and make this shit up in your head like all the other P4P nonsense. They are the same weight. We can test this in reality. Does anyone seriously believe that Ronda would beat Barao in a fight? Because that is what they are saying when they rank Ronda above him "pound for pound".
We're less able to test that in reality than we are Barao vs Edgar

No shit. The point is they weight exactly the same. POUND FOR POUND.

Is anyone here besides Ronda's retarded coach going to tell me she beats Barao in a fight? Didn't think so.

This isn't some magical fantasy fight where Cain Velasquez shrinks down to 135 pounds.
