This.

Hypocrisy runs wild on this board.

I thought Thiago Tavares would be a top LW by now...oops.

Favorite Fighters by Weight Class:
MW Rich Franklin
HW Still supporting "The Crocop"
LW Frankie Edgar
WW GSP (I'm a closet Hughes fan)
LHW Whoever's fighting Tito Ortiz
All-time Genki Sudo

We learned that his cardio is awful in the Lesnar fight but i wouldn't say that he fits in the description just yet. His still 12-1 with 11 first round stoppages and holding a victory over a former champion. Not to mention he dominated most of his first loss fight.

He was hyped way too much for his fight with Lesnar, and he gas'd iin the first round. We haven't seen enough of him to say he's overrated, but he's very overhyped.
