After that he needs to fight one more good heavy weight (NOT Linland or anyone like that). I mean an Overeem, or Randy, or Werdum or Gonzaga etc. before I consider him top 10
OMG, you're AWESOME! "sorry, you can't be top ten, because you beat everyone TOO FAST." You don't let them take you down and force you to prove yourself by defending and THEN beat them, so you're not as good as if you did."
And why even bring up "Linland" (by which I imagine you mean Matt Lindland, a natural middleweight...whose losses in teh past five years are Belfort, Fedor, Rampage...not to shabby). Were they discussing a fight between the two?
