Following UFC 111- St. Pierre vs Hardy, another SUPER CARD is set to take place at UFC 112. What are the chances that the current p4p rankings will be shaken up and a new pecking order will be revealed?

The current appointments by sherdog.com are as follows:

1.) Anderson Silva
2.) Georges St. Pierre
3.) Fedor Emelianenko
4.) Lyoto Machida
5.) BJ Penn

Who will have the number one slot after April 10th?

I am all geared up and ready to go for UFC 112. I am fortunate enough to be in Abu Dhabi for the best card of 2010 and can’t wait to witness a piece of MMA history.

Also, thank you fellow fight fans for helping this sport grow to what it is today.

I think it will still be Anderson Silva probably at #1...
Also, I think BJ Penn should be ranked higher.

Unless Penn of Silva loses, i think everyone's already got their mind made up.

I don't think the rankings will change much, if at all.

I think after it's all said and done, come summer the only person leaving would probably be Machida, but that's even a BIG if. Because that fight with Shogun is gonna be crazy, I don't know who to pick. Maybe Hardy can get lucky against GSP like serra and land a perfect punch and Maybe Edgar's short size and speed might give BJ a little trouble but BJ should be able overcome it and win eventually and GSP will probably be handing out a beatdown. I don't think Anderson will have a problem with maia. And fedor's fedor. He'll beat any Heavyweight in strikeforce besides maybe if Allistair could catch him, but he won't fight fedor before summer.

Sean Sherk...

I don't really see them changing much either. I'd like to see Hardy beat GSP, but I think unless Georges comes in with a terrible game plan, he'll walk away with a decision. Machida I think will outlast Shogun, and Anderson should walk through Maia.

The only thing I see changing is if BJ puts on another impressive performance and completely outclasses Edgar he would get put passed Machida.

EDIT: Even though he already should be ahead of Machida in my opinion.

My guess is that if there is any change at all it will come in the form of Penn moving ahead of Machida. I can see Penn putting on a hurting on Edgar, and Machida will certainly have his hands full with Shogun. Clearly if Machida loses the rankings will probably change, but even a dominating win by BJ and a less than stellar win from Machida could move things around a little bit.

Those are my top 5 as well
Question is who loses first out of all them??
Can't wait to great pay per views back to back
Double title events
Out of all 3 champions I bet all three will win
Only one I am worried about it gsp vs hardy
Hardy 4-0 in ufc. Never been rocked or in trouble
Never been knocked out. He is a tough guy
I do smell upset. I don't care much for him but I do
Respect him a lot. That fight will have me on the edge

@prozac

Yeah man. Upset indeed.

More importantly. Vera Jones tonight. Fight of the year for sure. Vera is the most underrated player in the game. I think he is a bad mofo that has had some clever opposition. His Thai Boxe is Krispie Kreme and has fought the who's who in the HW division. I expect Jonny Bones to be knocked off his pedestal.

your thoughts fellow fans?

I don't think the "who loses first?" is the only question that determines fighters' ranking in the p4p list. I think, as some have mentioned, that how well/convincingly a fighter fights against their opponent also has an affect on where they rank.

But I agree, all 3 champs should retain their titles through UFC 112
