    I didn't say i'd pick any of them over Frankie I just pointed out it's all tough fights.I also said Frankie is simply better than Gil.Those are all tough fights any way you cut it.It's annoying idiots running around saying Gil sucks or has lost his fighting ability cause he lost to some awesome fighters.That's Sherdog for you though =/ I agree with your assessment of those fights but could lose to all three,also Barboza and them train together also or at least have a lot in the past.

    Overrating by saying he was a consensus top 5 or better from around 06? Go back and find the rankings, you'll see.

    Not only that, but Gilbert became the number one featherweight in the world about three months after Frankie made his professional debut.

    I love Frankie, but Gilbert's been playin' this game at the highest level for far longer.

    Frankie went into the Stephens fight with a torn MCL.

    Frankie always works hard and shows up prepared.

    Gil hasn't done a good job on much since he negotiated that contract (right before coaching TUF vs Pettis).
    Stephens didn't beat Gil before that, he beat him now.

    I don't think this fight proved anything, besides how far Gil has fallen.

    from around '06 till when he already got gifted dec in Strikeforce even before coming to the UFC and other then the win over Kawajiri had no top wins over a elite LW prior to '07 and didn't even go on his run until '09 and by '11 was already starting to slow down the only ppl that ranked him that high was delusional.

    Coincidently, the first non championship fight that he lost was against Edgar.

    Like I said, his best wins were against Josh Thomson (a very good fighter), but I really think Josh won their last fight. That would make the series 1-2 vs. 2-1. Aoki, Kawajiri and Ishida had their glory days inside rings of Japanese MMA, but none ever proved themselves to be elite LWs in U.S. cage fighting.

    Pound for pound Frankie Edgar is an amazing fighter.

    I put him in my top 10 tbh.

    I'm not trying to shit on the guy but he is like a pressure fighter in boxing just a smaller window where he was effective and burnt out earlier.
