Beating Kawajiri is very very impressive. I can see why he was top 10.
But people who were ranking him top 5, hmm.
EDIT: I personally had him ranked 9th.
And I agree that beating Kawajiri was very impressive. I actually have Pride Shockwave 06 and watch it all the time. But after being exposed by Ishida, I wouldn't rank him past 8. I was referring to all the top 5 ranks that he gets (like you said). It's just baffling.
And like you guys were saying, LW is a very difficult division to cut apart and rank right now. But I thik it's between BJ, Aoki, JZ, Gomi, and a tossup for the fifth guy for Top 5.
