    MMA Top 10 Pound-for-Pound Heavyweight 

    MMA Pound for PoundMy top 10 best pound for pound fighters for the past year has always been a heavyweight in the top of the list: Fedor Emelianenko convinced me of his Combatant Status No. 1 with his victory over Andrei Arlovski in January 2009 (I was upstairs Anderson Silva before that) and I have not changed my mind since.

    But it is quite unusual for a truck to be the best pound for pound fighter. In fact most of the book early for filing in the book of boxing are effectively excluded trucks. I was asked recently what Cain Velasquez should do to be considered a Top 10 pound for pound fighter, and it made me think about how to stack up truck in the pound for pound rankings .

    Part of what makes a great Fedor is that he has dominated the truck, much larger Brett Rogers and Tim Sylvia. At 230 pounds, he is a disadvantage when fighting guys who balloon up to 280 between fights and has been forced to reduce the limit to 265 pounds. But Fedor beat them anyway.

    Across the spectrum heavy Brock Lesnar. I Lesnar No. 2 on my investments of the language, but I would have a terribly hard time ranking Lesnar in my Top 10 pound-for-pound fighters. Even if Lesnar beat Fedor, it would really make Lesnar a Top-10 pound for pound fighter? Or would it simply say that Lesnar to be dehydrated to 265 for the route-ins, then enter the Octagon about 280, is simply a benefit too large to overcome for Fedor?

    This brings me to Velasquez. If I could see another heavyweight besides Fedor, which makes the top 10 pound for pound rankings, it would Velasquez. People sometimes talk of Velasquez, as a kind of physical monster, but it is really not as big as standard heavyweight: He weighed 242 pounds to 110 UFC, making him much less than Lesnar, and has also a rather large minor that Frank Mir and Shane Carwin. If Velasquez becomes UFC champion heavy weight of the biggest opponents, he would have a very good reason to be one of the Top 10 pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

    MMA UFC 110 Result 

    UFC 111The long expected bout between Yoshihiro Akiyama and Wanderlei Silva did not take place at this event. Instead, Silva faced Michael Bisping.

    A bout between Nate Marquardt and Chael Sonnen which was expected to take place on this card was moved to UFC 109. A bout between Keith Jardine and Rich Franklin had been discussed, but Jardine eventually fought the Ultimate Fighter 8 winner Ryan Bader.

    B.J. Penn Was born in December 13, 1978 In America. B.J Penn as an American mixed martial artsist and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner of Anglo-Irish and Korean decent who is currently the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight Champion. At the age of seventeen, Penn began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after being introduced to it by his neighbor,

    Fighting career

    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:
    In 1997 Penn began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Ralph Gracie, eventually earning his purple belt from Gracie.

    Ultimate Fighting Championship:
    His accomplishments in the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship caught the attention of Dana White and the Ultimate Fighting Championship who convinced him to switch to MMA.

    Fighting and Entertainment Group
    Shortly after defeating Hughes, Penn signed to fight for the Japanese Fighting and Entertainment Group’s (FEG) K-1 promotion citing a lack of challenging fights left for him in the UFC. The UFC promptly stripped him of the welterweight title, claiming Penn breached his contract and that the signing constituted him refusing to defend his title. Penn filed a suit against the UFC and publicized his side of the conflict, claiming his UFC contract had already expired. Penn filed a motion to stop the UFC from awarding a new welterweight title, but that motion was denied. In his first fight for FEG, Penn fought again at welterweight (170 pounds) and defeated Duane Ludwig at the 2004 K-1 MMA Romanex show in under five minutes by arm triangle choke.

    Return to the UFC:
    In early 2006 at UFC 56, UFC president Dana White announced that Penn and the UFC had agreed to a settlement and Penn was to return as a top welterweight contender. Penn re-debuted on March 4 at UFC 58, losing to Georges St. Pierre by split decision in a fight that determined the number one welterweight contender.
