By who? I think Im the only one who Ive seen who actually think hes top 10 material. His ground game is ridiculous and his stand up is really starting to come along. Say what you want about Rizzo but his stand up isnt something to ignore and Monson managed to not only keep up with him but almost KO him in there fight.

Its nice to see a HW fighter outside of the UFC actually taking on some solid competition consistently.

Monson is indeed overrated, no doubt about that. I remember around his title shot with Sylvia people were hyping him like crazy.

However if he wins these upcoming fights, I think I could squeeze him into the top 10 and not say he is overrated/hyped.

I still think if he was 4-5 inches taller he would take that fight. I mean when he finally got Tim down he couldnt even reach his face when he was stuck in his guard.

I'd put Monson in my top ten, I just wish he would control were the fight goes better because I believe he has the tools to be in the top 5 he just doesnt have the gameplan, Monson needs to go train with Randy and learn how to go in knowing what he needs to do, then I think he'll be the champ somewhere for sure.

No kidding, as I recall Tim was being boo'd the whole fight for just sprawling and being a puss the whole time, throwing basically no blows and being only defensive. What a waste of a fight.

It was a waste I remember watching it in a packed bar and the place went nuts when Monson finally took Tim down.

Monson is a fantastic fighter and a classy man. I will be supporting him, I like to watch him fight.
