    Gsp being at rank 2 on the pound for pound rankings is the final nail in the coffin that the pound for pound rankings mean nothing.

    Havent been following the ufc recently due to uninteresting looking cards. But went on the fighter rankings recently and laughed out loud.

    Seriously though: George st pierre is not the pound for pound greatest fighter in the world. Neither is Silva. Neither is Emeliananko..they had their time in the sun but now they are not great fighters (compared to the talent we have today). He(gsp) should officially retire while his legacy is still decent. Otherwise some truly "hard to watch" things will happen to him.

    Lesson for the day

    P4P is a make believe ranking system that makes no logical sense in any way.

    Honestly, do P4P lists ever really count?

    I stopped giving a shit about it once a lot of the top guys finally lost like fedor and Anderson. Gsp and jones removed themselves from not fighting. Interesting that Conor still gets ranked

    Decent?

    Lineal WW champ
    Lineal MW champ
    26-2 record
    All losses avenged
    9x title defenses
    Regarded by many as P4P GOAT

    ''decent''

    A lot less controversy about p4p in the boxing and kickboxing world. I only ever see mma fans complain about it. how so?

    The UFC rankings have always been full of shit and you're crying about GSP being ranked number 2 in the pound for pound category?

    I can find you at least 10 far worst things to cry about in the rankings in less than a minute.

    Fuck outta here.

    Careful, the GSP group has been a touchy bunch lately.

    I was quoted by a few of them yesterday for saying literally nothing bad about him.

    No top 5 win at MW nor WW in many years. Too lazy to look it up but if you want to help GSP by counting the Hendricks fight where he got beat up then it's probably 4-5 years ago since he won against a top 5 opponent.

    Last win before that was a decision win over Condit who is 3-10 in his last fight.

    1. GSP is still a GREAT fighter in terms of "talent" as you mentioned and skill, he just might not be able to beat all of them because he's older now (but we don't actually know that)

    2. Cyborg is ranked above Nunes whose resume is twice as good, the Saint is far from the worst thing to complain about on the P4P rankings

    They do if you think MM is the greatest fighter on the planet.

    P4P lists are subjective and only spoken about to involve the "little guy" in the big picture. Nothing more
