This isn't a matter of opinion, that is just wrong. Overrated literally means over...rated... Being rated higher than you actually are.it doesn't matter if you are highly rated. You just have to be rated better than you actually are. It's not what I think, it's literally what it means.

He doesn't have to be looked at like a top fighter,but people rate his skills based on a win against a declining Fedor and a Browne that was limping around the cage. Thus overrating his actual skill level. The Browne win wasn't impressive and doesn't really show anything as he literally had no movement after he injured his knee very very early in the fight.

EDIT: This is my last post regarding what overrated is as it is somewhat off topic.
