    If Chris beats The Dragon and Gus edges out Jones in their rematch. Two pretty likely scenarios. A legend in the making.

    He already is imo. He just needs to prove that to those who cant see his greatness.

    I think if he destroys Machida and Jones loses, then he might have a case for being #1 P4P.
    If he beats Machida in a more spectacular fashion than Jones did, that will be something.

    I don't think however that Jones losing makes Weidman any more of a 'legend', for that he needs to get through at least a few more strong challengers.

    This. P4P is more about seniority than anything else really

    IMO Aldo has been too bland and unimpressive for the last 2+ years to be considered #1 P4P over Weidman, if he destroys Machida.

    Weidman has 2 weird wins over 1 great fighter. Settle down.

    Weidman is already #1. He beat the shit out of the former P4P #1 twice at his own game. He is a wrestler who outstruck Anderson Silva twice. Come at him. If you beat the best, you are the best, period.

    Lol, no. Aldo should be #1 if Jones would lose, he has nearly cleaned the division. Weidman has two wins against Anderson, which is a huge feat, but it doesnt mean that he would beat everyone in the division.
