Guy Mezger is underrated as hell, but nobody mentioned...
In fact, Gilbert may have taken too much crap for a bad match vs. Don Frye, because it followed one of the most horrendous KO's in MMA history.
Yvel's flying kick to Gary Goodridge's head made Cro Cop wonder if he could do the same. It took him all the way to Pride 34 to actually show his sick-ass talent again in the correct light.
He put Shoji to bed (unlike MANY to let their fights go to decision), and he did it about two months ago (unlike Guy).
Now of course, there is that Ref-beating incident, but he kicked that ref's ass. A bad fighter would have lost to the referee.
He's not a super grappler, but his strikes make up for it, hands down.
