What's interesting now about the MMA pound-for-pound list is no one is invincible. For years, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre sat atop this list -- almost carefree. Those guys didn't have fights, they put on shows. Every outing felt like some type of one-sided celebration. That's not the case these days. Jon Jones, No. 1 on this list, can lose. Jose Aldo, although he's looked unbeatable in the UFC, could definitely run into trouble if he fights Chad Mendes next. Johny Hendricks just had a war. Cain Velasquez and Anthony Pettis are injured and on the sidelines. There is an air of vulnerability to this pound-for-pound list, making it more intriguing.
