No he doesn't.

B.J., Sherk, Florian, Guillard, and Mac would all outstrike him.

I think Frankie Edgar did a good job of one upping him on the feet as well.

ok, he narrowly lost to sherk in a fight that was almost entirely striking....florian i agree w/...guillard and mac i don't. b.j would obviously oustrike him....and edgar lost the standup to tyson...thats why he was always going for td's towards the end of the fight.

is guillard even a ufc fighter now?

Too be fair Tyson and Sherk were very close in striking in their fight. I honestly thought it could go either way. Sherk's wrestling earned him the narrow victory imo.

I think Mac would smoke him. We'll have to sig if that one ever happens.

IDK about Guillard, did he get cut or something? I know he was just on the undercard of the Liddell-Evans card, or one around that time.

Florian IMO is better as well and BJ obviously.

However he is very good.
This sums it up very well. I don't think Diaz will be anywhere near title contention with today's top LWs.

UFC lightweight contender Melvin Guillard was arrested Aug. 13 in Houston for violating probation on a 2007 drug charge, a Harris County deputy told Sherdog.com.

The 25-year-old New Orleans native is in custody at the Harris County jail in Houston, the deputy said last Thursday, and will be released to a drug treatment facility as soon as space becomes available per the terms of his recently amended probation.

I'd say that if he can beat a guy like Maynard of Griffin, then he could get a #1 contender fight.
