Ok... Baroni would be tough for a lot of guys because of his punching power.
Top guys like Sell, Minowa, and Hose had a lot of trouble with Phil's power?
Cung Le would be tough for any MW because of his power and amazing skill.
I think you are seriously misjudging Le and will be surprised one day when he enters the UFC.
Shamrock is the only even midlevel fighter that Le has faced. The rest of the guys he's fought couldn't even be considered third tier. Le has never really been tested. He will never fight in the UFC. They won't put up with a guy who only fights once or twice a year.
Frank Shamrock is a beast and has the capability to beat almost any MW fighter... (not Silva
Keep telling yourself that. Since he hasn't fought a top ten guy in almost a decade, I would have to see it to believe it.
