You gotta remember he was locked in the WEC together with Brian Stann, Carlos Condit, Donald Cerrone and Jamie Varner who were all apparently underrated before coming to the UFC. You could make the same statements about them.

His wrestling background which he uses alot and his camp helped him alot in achieving victories in the UFC. The Marquardt fight was a surprise though I also predicted him losing by submission.

Following: Cain , JDS, Werdum, Shogun, Machida, Weidman, Pettis, Aldo, Melendez
