It is odd how people decipher who has fought legit guys or not. A guy like Barnett is wrote off by many here because "he has 1 good win in 7 years". But Saff has one good win in his whole career. Yet that is NEVER said about him.
It is really odd. People make no sense what so ever when talking about this stuff. People fall so in love with rankings or what Zuffa tells them. Yet none of it makes any sense.
What? Who has been saying Tarec is some great fighter. Maybe a certain crazed SF fanboy mod might claim that but I have never seen anyone on this site really hype up Tarec.
He is a solid UFC quality fighter and probably better than everyone in Brown's current win streak. Pyle is really the only one where you might question who is better. So it is kind of a lateral move but that is completely acceptable once you start getting into the top 20.
