Compiling pound-for-pound MMA fighter rankings can be quite an endeavor. There’s a lot factors to take into account, like fighter activity, strength of opponents and more. But here’s Sports Untapped’s pound for pound list for February.

Jon Jones – Jones is the most dominant fighter on the planet right now. Anderson Silva is right there, but Jones has beaten three former UFC champions in a row, so he gets the top spot on our list.

Anderson Silva – The most dominant fighter of all-time, but comes in second on our list. Jones fought 4 times in 2011. Silva has fought four times since April of 2010.

Jose Aldo – 11-0 combined in WEC/UFC fights with 5 consecutive title defenses. ‘Nuff said.

Georges St. Pierre – On  the shelf with the knee injury, GSP doesn’t win a lot of style points with blood thirsty fans, but he just keeps winning and holding on to his belt.

Frankie Edgar – Took the belt from the greatest lightweight champion in UFC history, BJ Penn, then beat him again to keep it. Then beat Gray Maybard soundly after they fought to a draw. Edgar is the real deal, and perhaps still underrated.

Dominick Cruz – Hasn’t lost since 2007 and has defended his title 4 consecutive times. Urijah Faber better have a new wrinkle to his game plan when he fights Cruz again later this year.

Junior Dos Santos – Took the belt from previously unbeaten Cain Velasquez after running through the best of the UFC heavyweight division. Sky is the limit.

Ben Henderson – Don’t forget — Henderson was the WEC lightweight champion. His domination of Jim Miller and Clay Guida make the Pettis fight look like a fluke. Has a legit shot at beating Frankie Edgar for the title.

Cain Velasquez – Had a bad night and lost the title to JDS, but he’s still worthy of a spot on the P4P list. No one doubts that he will fight for the belt sooner rather than later.

Rashad Evans – Can you count the former champions that Evans has beaten? Liddell, Rampage, Tito, Forrest… Evans has just one loss in his career, to Lyoto Machida. He gets his shot to reclaim the title in April against Jones.
