I think that was just a rough fight for Gil everything considered, Masvidal's another guy who I think can make some noise but not as much as Thomson can, Gil was fighting good guys in Strikeforce but his motivation was lacking towards the end, in the UFC I expect him to shine bright, this is what he's been wanting.
I agree and that is sort of the point. He beat the crap out of overrated Asian fighters who traditionally never do as well in America as they do in Japan. When he faced a guy like Thompson, who I think is better...he struggled.
