That's not to say that I think he's the most underrated LW or FW.

HW - Struve.
LHW - Nogueira. Sensible people actually thought putting credits on Evans at 0.23 was a good idea.
MW - Eh, I'm gonna go with Costa.
WW - GSP. I know, he's the champ and #3 on most P4P lists, but I still think he doesn't get the credit he deserves for being so dominant in such a stacked division.
LW - Pettis was actually the vBookie underdog against Cerrone. I'm gonna go with that.
FW - Agreed about Darren Elkins.
Hunt is underrated because before recently he has looked less than stellar. But he's improved but people don't give him the respect he deserves still.

I think Lil nog is highly overrated, don't get me wrong I am a fan of him. Edgar is a great fighter I agree, he just doesn't have much finishing power. But same can be said about Bendo

Sig Credit - El Bresko
