MMA Top 10 Pound-for-Pound: Jose Aldo Makes a Big Move

Two days ago, I don't think anyone had Jose Aldo listed as one of the top 10 pound-for-pound fighters in mixed martial arts. But after what Aldo did to Mike Brown on Wednesday night, I don't think there's any way to exclude him.

Aldo didn't just beat Brown to win the World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight title, he dominated him: Dominated someone who himself had dominated the featherweight division up until he ran into Aldo. So my new pound-for-pound rankings include a new name, and a name that I have a feeling we'll be seeing on pound-for-pound lists for a long, long time.

Top 10 Pound for Pound Fighters in MMA
1. Fedor Emelianenko
2. Anderson Silva
3. Georges St. Pierre
4. B.J. Penn
5. Lyoto Machida
6. Jose Aldo
7. Brian Bowles
8. Shogun Rua
9. Rashad Evans
10. Miguel Torres
