If you're considering old fights for rankings may as well put Shogun in the mix. Besides Evans never fought TRT Hendo. They had a televised light sparring session which he "won" but he more recently lost a light sparring session to lol nig of all people
Rashad did very little in the Nog fight outside of dance around but he still lost by decision.
But the question is who has Gus beaten to get his #2 rankings. He lost to Davis and has a shogun win and Manuwa win. He did great against Jones but that does not give him a #2 spot among fighters with better records.
You guys throw around Evans not being a top division elite but he has a better resume currently in terms of top 10 fighters than all of the contenders and destroyed a guy in Davis who beat Gus at LHW and one who gave Machida problems.
No LHW has a better resume of top ten currently than Evans outside of Jones. Which begs the question, how come none of these contenders are fighting top 5 or even top 10 LHW fighters or fighting top 5 fighters for their spots.
