He may be over-rated, but I like the guy. He's got KO power, and I love his arrogant swagger in the Octagon. His signal to the camera after knocking Jardine out was genius. He'd scrape into my Top 10 I reckon, probably around 9th or 10th. I rank Shogun, Machida, Rashad, Rampage, Nog, Forrest, Randy and Jones ahead of him for sure, but I reckon he could squeeze into the Top 10.

well to be fair i said rate not my official ufc lhw rankings. however going through the list of current ufc lhw i'd say: machida, shogun, lil nog and probably rampage would all be huge odds on winners but as for the rest of the division it could go either way on any given day. So that just in my opinion of who i can see him beating down the track.

I think he's very overrated. In his fight against Lyoto, it looked like he had literally no idea what to do. Ridiculously one sided. Then he lost to Rashad. When I look at the top 10 LHWs, I think every fighter could beat him.

His weak chin was further exposed in the Machida fight.

Finally, this is the response I was waiting for

He legit as far as I'm concerned, he does have some areas to improve in but he is a beast and has mad power in his hands....

Many other fighters have great power but aren't good. Power is overrated when your hands aren't fast and you don't have a gas tank. He can KO the slower fighters but not any of the top fighters.

He has power, yet he's so damn slow, has awful defense and is just not good.

Both are excellent points, I mean he def has the power and I think he can be legit, but the cardio as mentioned and the fact that his defense, while i think there is some there, not enough, but Thiago strikes me as that dude that wants to stand toe to toe and ends up finding himself getting caught when perhaps if he implemented his defensive training he would fair alot better.......What Im saying is I think his ego makes him sloppy, sometimes suckered into losing his discipline like a guy that rests on his laurals, as opposed to constantly trying to improve....

Perhaps another camp, or a rededication to the sport, but he certainly is not a fighter I would give up on....
