    putting a woman in the p4p list doesnt make any sense. Women not having their own p4p list just confirms that WMMA is being to shallow and weak to have one.

    Moussassi tooled RR and he aint even on that list.Ok ok he has some weight on her and ofc some muscle. Pretty sure any BW top10 couldve done that also!



    p4p list is a hypothetical list where fighters have their skills be translated to the same weight etc, and then who would win a fight. How can you translate the power of a woman to match that of a man? You cant. So RR should not be considered for the male p4p list. imho ofc!

    That's one of two definitions
    It's the one where it doesn't make sense for her to be on

    The other definition welcomes her inclusion

    Nay. It was too one-sided of a fight.

    P4P is divisional dominance because that is the only measure that makes any sense. Rousey has finishes and complete control over her opponents so she deserves her spot.


    "What if all the fighters were the same size?" is something that I cannot begin to think about.

    She's p4p best woman fighter.
    She can't compete with the guys. It's like saying the #1 wnba team could hang with any NBA team

    defenition p4p http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pound_for_pound:

    Pound for pound is a term used in combat sports such as boxing[1] or mixed martial arts[2] to describe a fighter's value in relation to fighters of different weight classes. As these fighters do not compete directly, judging the best fighter pound for pound is subjective, and ratings vary. They may be based on a range of criteria including "quality of opposition", factors such as how exciting the fighter is or how famous they are, or be an attempt to determine who would win if all those ranked were the same size.

    it all boils down to what would happen if they were the same size and who would win.

    Your "it all boils down to" doesn't reflect the definition you pulled. The definition you quoted mentions a range of factors and some lend themselves to the "divisional dominance" definition in addition to the alternative "size normalization" definition
