UFC Tonight Crew Discuss Pound-For-Pound King In UFC

Chael Sonnen, Kenny Florian and Ariel Helwani were each posed a question during a recent episode of UFC Tonight.

That question centered around who is the best fighter in the UFC in terms of pound-for-pound.

Kenny Florian’s response:

“First we have to talk about the definition of a pound-for-pound champion. That is a guy who you can stick in any weight class and he will win….like Jose Aldo, a former opponent. This is a guy who I believe will beat anyone at every different weight class with his different skills and what he can bring into the Octagon.”

Chael Sonnen’s response:

“I agree with your definition, but, there is only one guy who actually covers 170 pounds being the world champion, 185 pounds being the champion, 205 pounds being the champion….and that is Dan Henderson.”

Ariel Helwani’s response:

“I can understand where Chael is coming from, but Kenny, I’m disappointed. There is only one guy who is the longest successful title holder, who has the most wins in UFC history, Anderson Silva.”
