Okami fan I defiantly forgot Gomi. But I don't think Uno is a top LW anymore. I mean Dida owned him badly. the fight should've been stopped and if they ref didn't step in and save Uno and then restart the fight it would've been finished.

The top of the LW divison is Gomi and JZ at #1 and #2. Kid is next even though I think Shaolin and Dida are both bad match ups for him. After Kid, Dida and Shaolin are the next best and if Shaolin learns how to strike and Dida learns some ground skill they are both Top 5 LW's in the world. Then I think Uno comes in and then after Uno would be Gill and a bunch of other guys.

I agree with Ribeiro but I think Kid would smash Dida....throw him around like a ragdoll and then knock him out. I haven't seen a helluva lot of Dida though. His standup is crisp and powerful, throws a lot of fast looping punches from what I remember, but his grappling is falling noticably short. Kid's an excellent grappler, with excellent stand-up/defense...he would stand and trade and if he felt the need to, he'd be able to take Dida down at will and pound on him.

I'm not trying to start shit either lol, I know you're a big Dida fan...but that's how I see it.

This is all kinda null though, unless Dida drops to FW.

O I understand I don't have any problem with you thinking Dida would lose.

Personally I just don't think Kid has a chin. I mean on the ground this wouldn't even be close but Dida rocked JZ, and beat the hell out of Uno. I mean JZ is a big guy with a good chin. Kid has a pretty good chin but he is a natural FW and Dida is a LW and if Kid ever moved up I think Dida would finish him before they got to the ground but I defiantly see the way you are thinking about it as well.
