gus never fought someone like chael or rashad (i m talkkng style wise)
so no i m not sure he can handle them, i didn t said he can t i just said we don t know, he is still kinda unproved,that s not a diss but look at who he fought, not alot of top 10
Phil Davis is just a younger, stronger version of Chael Sonnen. Gustaffson beats Davis if they fight today, and Rashad has absolutely nothing for Gustafsson

the word "subpar" was in quotations... I really wasn't sure of the word to use. I guess to elaborate...

the gus that fought jones looked like a man killing machine who I would bet thousands on vs everyone on that list.

the gus that fought shogun looked very "subpar" to the gus that fought jones, and I would be hesitant to bet much money on him. it was still a good performance... but he looked very human. and considering the fact that shogun is probably the worst fighter on that list. I have even less confidence that the gus that fought shogun could beat every fighter on the list in a row.

Even though they have completely different styles? Phil has bad takedowns, great control, and relies on speed. Sonnen has a great double, pretty good in the clinch, and relies on strength.

Also Rashad has some threat with the takedown. Who knows, maybe short athletic Black guys could take down Gus.
