in theory, shouldn't the #1 contender be the only one getting a title shot? Not some one ranked 12 spots below a #1 contender?

You all are fucking IDIOTS if you think Ronda doesn't deserve to be on that list. Mighty Mouse can't beat Cain Jon Jones or Cain or Whoever either. But he is still a WORLD CHAMPION in the #1 MMA promotion in the WORLD. SO IS RONDA ROUSEY!!! She should stay at #10. PERIOD. She has NEVER lost and has finished all 8 of her opponents by the SAME FUCKING MOVE. SMH. You all kill me. For real. LMFAO!!!!!

Pretty sure Ronda already beat Faber in her debut UFC fight.

Ronda can't beat any of the men at 135 and she's listed as a top P4P fighter!!! Separate the men and the women for these lists otherwise it's completely ridiculous. If they keep making lists like this she'll get it in her head that she could actually beat Cain under the right circumstances.

Rhondas opponents are 1-4 in the octogen ... Get her off that list

Because age seems to be taking its toll on Anderson, and pound for pound lists are about what you can do now as opposed to what you have done in the past. I would argue Anderson shouldn't be in there at all, given his recent injury is likely career ending

It's a p4p list so you have to use your imagination a little bit I guess. If I was to compare Rousey and Faber on this list you're need to level the playing field, right? So I assume you'd have to imagine that Ronda also had the athleticism and coordination of a male, just like you would have to assume that Mighty Mouse and Cain were the same size when measuring those two up on a p4p list. Or does it not work that way? serious question
