Who's Laudin?

Do you mean Jess Liaudin? If so it's kinda hard to see how you have him as #2.

I didn't realise he'd submitted Ian Jones until I just checked his record. Judging by what I saw of Jones at TUF trials, that's a big win.

Pound 4 pound, I'd say you want something in a kind of canvas material - will look good on the beach.

It's not man hand bag though it's 'manbag' or in the States 'murse'.

Jon Hathaway?


Kurgan has landed in the top ten of the correct

Jon will have an awesome year.

Dan Hardy will tear ot up too. Mikey B. Semtex. Paul Taylor. Paul Kelly.

There are many more that could stake a claim to the other places.

this may be true, BUT i cannot see him beating Tom "The Tank" Egan in Dublin....

Also is everyone forgetting 'The Flame'.

After Robbie smashed Leigh that must put him well above him.

I have studied the tapes of Tom, and he is tough, Jon is tough but more importantly, his skills our on a different level. Jon will claim a victory on his UFC debut

1/ bisping (has good all round game, and is now biggest name in the ukmma scene)
2/ daley (excellent wins over some top welteweights, great knockout power)
3/ mann (has the best all round game, good in all areas)
4/ hardy (another top guy who i think will be big in 2009)
5/ etim (wikid stand up and ground, if he improves his wrestling he would defo be no.1, plus he's huge for LW)
6/ irvine (again another good fighter that blends all style well, and super tough)
7/ olivier (all though some of you guys think that he's boring, he still gets the job done and has beaten some top guys)
8/ zelg (explosive stand up fighter with some good sub wins over top guys)
9/ che mills (underestimated fighter who has beaten top guys, also massive for his weight)
10/ pickett (super tough, fit and aggressive)

lol @ the top 10's so far

Has anyone apart from Bisping, defeated the kinda guys that Dan Hardy has beaten over the last 18 months

e.g. Hardy has beaten Gono, Weichel, Reiner, Monma, Ishige (8-1 king of pancrase)

He's 9-1 in his last 10 (with 7 of the wins by TKO/Sub) His loss being a dodgy DQ


I know we all like to cheer for our mates but come on

So you'd have Bisping and Hardy 1 and 2 then ...? what about the rest.

i would have to go with dan hardy cause he could prob fight most weights and fuck peeps up,higher or lower

Definitely agree with Bisping, Daley and Hardy. They have beat highest level of competition of those mentioned so far.

Freeman's retired so that would put him out otherwise definitely in contention.

Got to mention James Zikic. Beat Cyborg, Faverus (sp?) and dropped, coming close to beating Belfort. Also has close fights- draws- with Jeremy Horn and Fabricio Werdum. He's relentless and going to have a big year in 2009 I predict.

Lee Dickson
22-12-2008, 01:32 AM
Lw Terry Etim
Ww Paul Daley
Mw Mike Bisping
Lhw James Zikic
Hw Al Turk

These are my opinions from each weight but think Bisping is P4P the uk s most sucessful fighter this year. But i believe Terry is P4P the most talented out of them. Predict big things next year for

Mark Scanlon, Jay Gladden, Dan Hardy, Paul Sass, Richie Downes, Ronnie Mann, Jim Wallhead.

22-12-2008, 01:47 AM
I always thought p4p was, if everyone was the same weight, who would be the best, who has the highest skill level...

Lee Dickson's just dont make sense, how can you have a p4p in each weight cat?

anyway, my number 1 UK p4p is Ronnie Mann.

22-12-2008, 02:02 AM

8, Mcveigh
9, Wallhead
10, Irving/Zikic

Some of this is crazy - you can't give a p4p ranking on fucking potential. How anyone can put anybody but bisping/hardy at no 1 is unbelievable

I'd go with that, although not seen anything of Mills so can't comment.

If Alex Owen was still fighting I'd have him defo in top 5 p4p. Most people seem to agree that #1 p4p is Ronnie Mann which I wouldn't argue with.
