He is behind in the rankings because 155 is ultra stacked, taht's all. He almost beat Khabib and he won against RDA and Varner, I don't know what you guys need...

JDS is a gatekeeper. Tibau never even sniffed a #1 contender fight. Big difference.
WTF, no ! A gatekeeper is a guy that separates contenders from journeymen. Guys like Faber and JDS who only loses title fight are perennial contenders, NOT gatekeepers. You have to lose to contenders to be a gatekeeper FFS.

He's a total badass, but not my favourite all time sweeper. That would go to this man:

he should be on a 100k contract by now
Why? he's not a top contender. He can be pretty dull in the cage too. People don't tune into to see a Tibau fight, so why would ZUFFA pay him what they pay the top echelon of fighters.
