    Gotcha . . . I would love to see the UFC add the light guys. Every time I watch Faber fight I wonder how he would do against heavier guys. I'll take him pound for pound over anyone else I've seen. Very fast, very scrappy, fun to watch! And it would be even better if his fights ever made it out of the first round.

    I will take Faber vs Penn beat any time. He is fun and exciting to watch, but still not in the same league is BJ or A. Silva

    Exactly. Faber would get schooled by BJ and murdered by Silva or GSP.

    Doesn't Silva fight at 185? And Penn has fought heavier too . . . had to come down to 160 to rank higher. Penn also lost to Pulver in '02. I know it's been a long time, but I'll take Faber's youth in that matchup. Would love to see Penn drop another 15 lbs or Faber gain 15.

    Faber is awesome, but he has stated he could make 135 no problem...

    I understand that it will probably never happen, it would just be cool if it did.

    I don't know why this whole pound for pound idea is so hard for you haters to get. I'm not saying Faber would win (or even come close) against Silva, but if they were both in the same division, it would be a different story.

    It's just dumb. If you had 184 lb. Faber, he wouldn't be nearly as fast as he is right now, and if you magically transfer his skills into this "big" Faber, he'd be faster then a normal 185 lb. human could be. It's an impossible debate.

    I'd rather see Faber v. Kid.

    I agree, it's dumb, I didn't bring up Silva or Penn in comparison to Faber, some other donkey did . . .
