I honestly think that as much as your dumping on Varner and Cerrone they are on the same level as a guy like Josh Thompson.


Here is my (American) LW hierarchy

Frankie Edgar/BJ Penn

Gray Maynard/Kenny Florian

Sherk/Dunham/Melendez/Bendo/Guida/Sanchez

Joe Stevenson/Thompson/Varner/Cerrone
I disagree on almost every count. And Melendez has shown heavy improvent where Guida has proven to not develop all around skills as effective. In fact I'd take Thompson over Clay Guida in a rematch anyday.

My Heiarchy for American LWs would go....

Edgar/Penn
Melendez/Maynard/Sherk
Florian/Alvarez/Miller/Sotty/Dunham
Guida/Thompson/Noons/Bendo
