The UFC's official top-10 rankings also include a theoretical pound for pound top ten. Although the whole concept of a pound for pound ranking is subjective at best, it remains a popular topic for the hardcore fanbase to insult each other over.
With her 16 second win over Alexis Davis at UFC 175, Rousey and UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks switched places, with Rousey landing at #9:
1. Jon Jones
2. Jose Aldo
3. Cain Velasquez
4. Demetrious Johnson
5. Chris Weidman
6. Anthony Pettis
7. Anderson Silva
8. Renan Barao
9. Ronda Rousey
10. Johny Hendricks
Rousey's coach Edmond Tarverdyan recently appeared on Ariel Helwani's The MMA Hour, and said that is way low.
"Top three, for sure," said Taverdyan, as transcribed by Anton Tabuena for BloodyElbow. "Ronda finishes every fight. She's amazing with the skills and the hard work and what she shows in the Octagon. 16 seconds, she showed everything. Good punch, good knee, good takedown, ground and pound. This girl did everything in 16 seconds, so she is in the top three."
"The way she performed against Sara McMann also, silver medalist, and the way she controlled her on the cage. Put those combinations together, mixed it up with elbows, everything, and dropped her. It's great."
"What I see with her, yes, the fights finish early, but she's the best in the world. She's should be in the top three."
Ronda Rousey is the most dominant champion in mixed martial arts. So should she be higher than #9 in the P4P list? Is the P4P list no girlz allowed? And who is hotter, Ronda Rousey or Urijah Faber?
In related news, SB Nation recently launched their Top 10 P4P women's ranking, and Rousey easily was #1 over Cris Justino.
