Your opinin here is tainted by your desire to see NJ fighters get the recognition they deserve which is a worthy goal but no need to bash good proven fighters in the process.
Joe Lauzon is overrated I said that when he first came off TUF and I will keep saying it that has nothing to do with NJ or Frankie Edgar.
Lauzon has a good top game but he doesn't have good wrestling or a dangerous guard and at LW with very good wrestlers who have submission defense that's not a good combo.
I think Florian hasn't shown he can beat a wrestler with submission defense and Edgar, and Griffin (who is from Vegas) both have that. That point had zero to do with NJ and more to do with good wrestlers with submission defense.
