Besides, it is not like GSP didn't decision guys who were questionable as top 10, and
you know... he was one of the best of all times!
GSP has the most top 5 wins of any fighter in history so I don't think he is a good example to use. Maybe Gil should have gone more than 1-1 before he started talking about PPV cuts and headlining.

I can, of course. I hate snitches as well.
When those people respond it'll normally be crap, so I don't mind. That's why the function exists.

No, the best LW in the world isn't overrated.

Gilbert doesn't even have eye beams. Weak sauce.

He is really good at MMA, so I'll grant you that.
He may be good at MMA, but not so good at UFC.

I just went back to look at his entire fight history, and it's a long list of fighters who are mostly nobody's. Sure, there's Aoki, Kawajiri, Thompson maybe. But look at that list and tell me how many of these fighters are in the top 10 of the universal lightweight division. Is someone else out there somehow more impressed by wins over Greg Quan, Olaf Alfonso, Stephen Palling, and Kaynan Kaku than I am?
Lol with a Wikipedia reference. Watch him fight. He's top three in the world.

Always Supporting:

Condit, Edgar, Gomi, JDS, Alvarez, Gustaffson, & Machida.

Ironically, that may be over rating him a bit. He's definitely top three.

I agree with top 3.

I don't see how he could ever be #1 without the UFC strap, unless we see a huge talent shift.
