Yes, if he beatsMir, then I will not call him overrated as much. Yes, guys get a couple fights against decent guys but that doesn't mean he is the greatest or as good as you say he is. There's only one #1 contender, so he has plenty
of other people to fight before he calls out the champ.
For your more recent post, I never said Assuerio was a can, I actually said he was the only decent fighter he has faced. Sylvia was obviously ill during that fight, and as funny as it sounds, trying to hold your shit in during a fight will probably play a huge factor in your performance. As much as I dislike Sylvia, if he wasn't too busy trying to control his sphinkter, he could have easily finished Assuerio. Tim has finished MUCH tougher guys in his career than Assuerio Silva. Assuerio is too short for the HW division, and since Brandon didn't have bowel issues when he faught Assuerio, he finished him.
I ain't sayin Brandon is a horrible fighter, I'm just saying he is overrated and hasn't proved to be as good as his fans claim he is. Not yet anyway.
