True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

Oh Canada,
Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!

Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix!

Ton histoire est une épopée,
Des plus brillants exploits.

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Admittedly, I'm a Fedor nut-swinger, so my opinion is slanted. But I don't think 3 dominating performances against 2 wrestlers make him #1 P4P. IMO, he barely beat BJ (and would lose to a in shape BJ, IMO) and he got embarrassed by Serra. (Even if you believe he would crush Matt in a rematch, it happened)

He's up there for sure, but it's still not #1 compared to Fedor's (and others) accomplishments and skills.

Im torn between anderson and gsp at number 1 and 2, then fedor at 3. Its purely down to his inactivity. If he starts fighting some actual competition next year, he could easily reclaim the top spot on my list.

Wow. U got healthcare and GSP. High Five Bud. Gimme a yell when you want to take an active part in the world instead of playing off America's coat tails. Oh that's right, u can't because the seat belt in the back seat is stuck and you guys can't get out! Keep riding with the U.S. and you'll eventually grow some cahones...

Nice. The textbook Canadian comeback at Americans.

I, for one, dont mind paying for healthcare if its higher quality than it would be for free... But, hey, just my opinion.

Don't make me quote the great prophet Rodney King:

"Can't we all just get along?"

Hey man, I didn't start this. I wrote an article a while ago about how American and Canadians are the same...But whatever.

the only reason i picked gsp over anderson is anderson has defended the belt a few times. i have no doubt gsp will do the same over the next few fights, but as of right now i have to still say anderson.

Well this thread wen't south, so i'm bringing it north where things are better . I can agree that GSP looks insane right now, he's doing exactly what Fedor does and beating guys where no one thinks people can! IE: hughes and kos wrestling and Cro Cop standing, as well as beating nog up in his guard. It's rediculous to watch guys have game plans to attack the other guys strength.

Accomplishments aren't a part of my ranking, as MMA Playground asks for the "most skilled" fighters. Yes, he barely beat Penn, and Penn is in my Top 10 P4P. You're right, GSP was embarrassed by Serra and, like he said, it made him better.

There isn't a single 170-lb fighter in the world that I would pick to beat GSP. Not one.

Fedor has been overrated for a while, maybe if he beat a legit contender within a period of 12 months I could have a different oppinion. Also, until Anderson Silva loses GSP can't come close to his #1 spot. He has to show more consistency, not destroy a past his prime legend, then lose to Serra.
