I personally find it interesting how B.J. was the #1 LW in the world and loses a razor close decison in their first fight with Edgar who wasn't even top 5 at the time...
Than comes back to the rematch and gets completley outclassed, dropping two fights in a row and is still top 5....
Than you got Shinya Aoki who was #2 gets beaten by the guy who was #5 at the time (Melendez) and returns to literally tear Kawajiris foot off his leg in an excellent reshowing of why he's so dangerous, sending Kawajiri to the hospital .... and yet he's out of the top 5 still?
That is absolutly ridiculous.
Shinya Aoki is a monster, and way underrated if you don't see him as top 5 IMO.
