That's how I feel as well, he ain't a top 5 till he beats one. On paper he could do it, but he hasn't done it yet. I'd be fine with saying he's a potential top 5 or that he has top 5 skills, but he isn't a top 5 fighter till he beats one. So far I have Anderson, Belfort, Sonnen, Okami, and Wanderlei ahead of him, with him & Munoz being pretty close to tied. I also see Cung Le being able to give him a ton of trouble up until he gasses & slows down.
