Yes he is. Be careful not to overrate some fighters that you're laying claim to..


[quote=Danm2501;1346620 It's all well and good beating the likes of Thomson, Ishida and Aoki,[/quote]

Don't forget to throw Tatsuya Kawajiri and Clay Guida in there since you're playing the name game..

lol everytime a WEC guy wins a title he's all of a sudden a LW top 10er.... those LW title holders have never lasted. Who in gods name has Anthony Pettis beaten?? He needs to compete with Melendez not the other way around.

Funny thing about the rankings is Gray Maynard is ranked below Frankie Edgar isnt he?? Even though he's defeated Edgar... and fought to a draw with him..

So in 2 proffessional MMA fights Frankie Edgar has failed to defeat the undefeated Gray Maynard yet he's still #1.. War mma rankings!

[quote=Danm2501;1346620 etc he isn't the number 2 in the world.[/quote]

I beg to differ. He's been #2 for about 6 months now. No lower than 3 and that's a reach.

He does for me.
