Big surprise, I disagree with everything you said. The LW division is a shark tank and will devour Gil whole if he is dumb enough to test those waters. His wrestling is better than average but I think guys like Guida, Maynard, etc, would destroy him there. His striking is really poor, he would get lit up by pretty much anyone in the top 10.

Gil is probably really sad that he has to leave the pond to go into the ocean.
