I didn't say wasn't, I said aren't.

Mir is out of the picture now. That's not because of Brock. Carwin can take the credit for that.

Couture came out of retirement when he should have just stayed retired. Couture wouldn't stand a chance against any of the top HW's now.

Brock has yet to fight any of the top HW's. Couture and Mir are notable, however not nearly enough given the current level of competition on the HW division.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
