    MMA Pound-for-Pound Fighters by UFC 

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S based MMA promotion. In 2009 They published a MMA Pound for Pound list. Today i am going to share that best MMA Pound for Pound fighters list with you. there are many few webs which published that list in 2009. thats why I decided to share with you guys the Best MMA Pound for Pound Fighters of 2009 by UFC

    10 – Brock Lesnar
    It’s hard to include Lesnar in the pound-for-pound discussion given his hulking physical dimensions, but something tells me that the reigning Heavyweight Champion would be a formidable lightweight contender if Rick Moranis happened to accidently hit him with the shrink ray.

    9 – Michael Bisping
    Bisping is only 29 and just coming into his prime as a fighter. His only loss in the UFC came via split decision to the undefeated “Sugar” Rashad Evans, and he’s currently on a three-fight win streak.

    8 – Matt Hughes
    Hughes is another fighter who’s past his prime, but still a legitimate threat to anybody he gets into the Octagon with. Hughes still has the strength and experience to get it done.

    7 – Chuck Liddell
    Liddell’s best years may be behind him now, but that doesn’t mean he’s through. “The Ice Man” is still one of the best punchers in the business and he’s still got the ability to end fights quickly and in spectacular fashion.

    6 – Wanderlei Silva
    Although “The Axe Murderer” has lost two of his last three fights, he remains one of the most dangerous strikers in the sport and a force to be reckoned with in the Light Heavyweight division. sh” will get a shot at “Spider” Silva for the Middleweight Championship.

    5 – Forrest Griffin
    If guts were gold Griffin would be one of the wealthiest men in the world. The reigning Light Heavyweight Champion seems to win on sheer force of will some nights.

    4 – Kenny Florian
    “KenFlo” absolutely dismantled Joe Stevenson at UFC 91, emerging as the No. 1 contender to Penn’s Lightweight title. However, he’ll have to wait until the dust settles on the Penn-St. Pierre fight at UFC 94 for his title shot.

    3 – Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
    Jackson may no longer wear the gold, but his devastating hands and raw power remain as formidable as ever.

    2 – B.J. Penn
    Penn has matured as a fighter over the past two years, blossoming into one of the very best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. His consecutive wins over Jens Pulver, Joe Stevenson and Sean Sherk speak for themselves.

    1 – Anderson Silva
    Silva has completely dominated the Middleweight division since coming to UFC in 2006, showing that he’s truly a complete fighter and, pound-for-pound, the best in the UFC today.
