He is in the WFA. I watched him fight on their PPV. They really hyped him up for beating Rich Franklin, among others, but it was a really boring fight. Him and the other guy, I forget who it was, just kinda pawed back and forth at each other forever.

Boring fight with White, the Penn fight was awful aswell. Haven't seen it, but the Franklin fight was meant to be poor aswell until the TKO. He did leave Bonnar a mess though.

Still, can't argue with the record.

I hope you gnubs are joking. Lyoto has been off for several years. He is definately one of the toughest 185ers out there. Give him time to get back on track before you go demanding a KO. He pwnd Rich and Bonnar. In about 2-3 fights they should grab him.

Firstly, the sherdog record isn't entirely accurate. I don't give them much credit for following lesser known fighters.

All of this guys wins over decent fighters are guys who weigh 20 pounds less than him at their natural weight. Don't ever try and put rich and bonnar on the same level.

You have brought up a really good question. The guy is a kind of fighter that doesn't exist in the UFC or pride. He's what's called an enforcer. Essentially, he gets fights with up and comers in much lower weight classes, padding his record. His fights are stacked in his favor, as an attraction for WFA.

Guys like this are under high paying contract with small time organizations and they exist so that WFA can say "we have a guy who beat rich franklin and BJ Penn." They forget that fighting at natural weight the guy is 20 pounds heavier than franklin and 35 pounds heavier than Penn.
