But the American is not willing to close the door on his return to the UFC for good.

    But Sonnen also said that he completely understood what Lesnar meant when he said that his legacy inside the cage in the UFC was over.

    The American is currently working as an analyst for the UFC and Chael Sonnen feels that the comments made by Lesnar was pretty obvious in nature – he tried his best to make it feel as if he was ready to return to fighting again competitively.

    Lesnar, although never had the best record in the UFC as well as in Mixed Martial Arts, was a devastating combat fighter in his prime at the UFC but his prime was too short. He was on the verge of becoming a free agent with his WWE contract nearing an end and made enough overtures to the UFC for fans to think he was coming back.

    Top 10 Pound For Pound MMA Fighter Rankings 

    Pound for pound is the term used in boxing, mixed martial arts, and other combat sports to describe a fighter’s value in relation to fighters of different weight classes. In boxing, Ring Magazine’s pound for pound list is the established standard for ranking fighters pound for pound. Because of the emphasis on the size of the boxer, pound for pound ratings predominantly feature fewer heavyweights, focusing primarily on boxers middleweight or below.

    It can also be used to describe how any two things compare when bearing in mind their varying quantities. For example, a tin of tomatoes weighing 250 g and costing $2.50 is more expensive, pound for pound, than one weighing 500 g and costing $4 (as the former costs $1.00 per 100 g and the latter $0.80 per 100 g).

    Here is the list of top MMA Pound for Pound Fighter Rankings:

    1. mma pound for pound jan 2010Anderson Silva
    2. Georges St. Pierre
    3. Fedor Emelianenko
    4. BJ Penn
