    Ryan Bader and Mckee ranked above Volkanovski.Poirier,Oliveira,Whittaker,Moreno, and Holloway. What's worse is that Jan blachowicz isn't even in the top 15.

    DJ is ranked #4, i mean i like Dj but he's not a top 5 or top 10 p4p anymore.

    Oh wow that's a bad one


    Viacom probably gave them some money.

    DJ just lost to a no name. Bader just got destroyed by Nemkov and wasnt good enough in the UFC. McKee in front of Volk and Holloway is laughable.

    Can we just do away with the concept of p4p finally?

    Bader on a p4p list is just so embarrassing... I can't.

    Jon Jones being #1 is a joke after razor thin split decision win, then Jiri and Jan decimating Dom in his next 2.

    Jones hasn't fought in almost 543 days.

    P4P doesn't matter anyway. Subjective rankings based on opinions. Matter as much as anyone else's own P4P rankings. Which is not at all.

    Bader wasn't good enough in the UFC? For what? Dude was top 10, maybe top 5 when they cut him and would still be ranked in the UFC right now if he was there.

    Bad P4P lists get people talking. Journalists know that.

    All p4p rankings are the worst rankings and shouldn't exist.

    Bader was a top contender during Jones and DC's reign, but UFC wanted to give those shots to new guys that just stood and banged. I'd favor him over Jan right now.

    P4P are a waste of time. There's no any to objectively adress who's facing tougher competition.

    Some will argue the lighter weight classes have a deeper talent pool (bigger athletes going to other sports where there's more money involved, etc). BUT the Light Heavyweight division has the best vertical jump of all weight classes which goes completely against that notion (VJ is an direct test of athleticism).

    There's simply no way to compare Ngannou to Usman or Moreno. All lists are complete arbitrary bullshit.

    Guys coming off KO losses (DJ, Stipe, etc) should NEVER be listed in the top 10 p4p.

    p4p, beyond showcasing skill and dominance, is very much a "who's hot right now" list. Volk is coming off of two straight wins over Max fucking Holloway. Stipe and DJ got put to sleep in their last fight.

    The only way you should possibly stay on a top 10 p4p list after a loss is if that loss was a super controversial split decision or something. Otherwise, you have to work your way back on after a loss.
