    Are we talking just title fights?....there are other ways to judge greatness I think

    Big Nog should be though of as one of the best Champs just cuz is held a UFC and Pride title

    Hendo for being a multi divison Champ at the same time in a major promo

    What do you get when you take A.Silva's clinch game + Mark Hunt's Iron Chin + Mushy Lady Parts?

    can someone explain me why Fedor's loss against Werdum wasn't for the title?

    It wasn't for a title. This is based solely on their performance at becoming or staying champion.

    Sorry about that. I added a little more information to make it less confusing. Hendo didn't make the cut because his win loss percentage was not quite high enough. If I added an 11th he would be included. Big Nog was 5-3, so he didn't make the cut.

    lmao read my question and then your answer again
    Oh, I think I see what you are getting at. You are suggesting that the fight should have been for the SF HW title. Overeem was champion at the time.

    An interesting thing to note is that some of these guys spent most of their careers in title fights:

    GSP: 54%

    Urijah Faber: 50%

    Gilbert Melendez: 50%

    Anderson Silva: 43%

    Dominick Cruz: 40%

    Statistics can be used to prove that even the most ridiculous things are true if the enough criterea is added.

    For example, going by title defenses alone Tito Ortiz is the greatest UFC LHW champ of all time and has now been equalled by Jones. This point came up in the post 159 press conference with both Jones and Dana agreeing that one more successful title defense would make Jones the greatest UFC LHW champion of all time. Well, its not true in my opinion because of the caliber of opponents Jones has faced. I can start adding my own criterea though such as the win/loss record of all the opponents faced by the champion etc.

    Maybe I live in the dark ages but I still think of Chuck as the greatest LHW champ of all time and if I desire I can come up with statistical criterea to prove that I'm right.

    Half of what's so interesting about these forums is that subjects like greatest p4p or whatever can only ever be based on opinion exactly because statistics are meaningless.

    It's no contest that Anderson is the greatest, and nobody else is close, not even Fedor.

    Sorry mate but Jones has beaten the better fighters, Shogun, Rampage, Evans, Machida, Belfort there all former ufc champions and he finished all but one of them.

    Don't be sorry man, you strengthened the main point I was trying to make about criterea (in this case quite meaningfully defeating former champions) being used to statistically strengthen an argument that, in actual fact can never be more than an opinion......

    anyway, I'm heading a little off topic so ill stfu

    they stopped considering WAMMA championship?
    Yeah, the WAMMA organization went belly up and I guess the didn't feel that the WAMMA championship should grant him an immediate title shot.

    You can debate Bendo-Edgar, but Aldo-Edgar wasn't even close, so not FW champ.

    Askren is only 4-0. He doesn't have enough title fights to compare him to the other guys on the list.

    yup. its less delusional to think Edgar lost BJ 1 and Maynard 2 than it is to think he won Bendo 1 or Aldo
