    At one point I thought Lando because it was very come from behind plus he locked it standing.

    Before that I thought Glieson Tibau as he submitted him so effortlessly.

    Now i'd say Kevin Lee.

    Yeah I was going to go with RDA, MJ and Barboza like Khabib but then I realized he lost to MJ lol

    He has a good streak going but anyone thinking he has a better record than Khabib is nuts considering his losses and the fact that he basically beat the same guys only not McGregor and he got dropped in a bunch of fights.

    I hope Khabib fights him next because I think Khabib will destroy him.

    Ramsey Nijem - most fighters only get one chance to win TUF.

    I still consider Lee a step below Iaquinta after his loss to him but we will see how the rematch goes.

    I think Al beats him again imo.

    A lot of people are overrating Lee, his best win is Barboza and he had to endure the funky chicken dance in that fight.

    Yep, for that reason, I would say Lee is his best legit win. Not double visioned RDA and semi KO-d Barboza.

    True, but how badly was Lee depleted from the infection?

    He does tend to slow down in every fight after a dominant RD1 I guess....

    Lee, RDA, Barboza.


    I hate to be that guy, but Ferguson’s win streak is littered with asterisks.

    -Eye poke against RDA
    -Kevin Lee had visible staph infection
    -illegal kick against Barboza changed the fight
    -Lando kicking his ass until he gassed (short notice)
    -Danny Castillo would’ve had sex with him if the fight happened in prison (I guess?)

    They’re all legit wins, but I think he’s maybe a bit overrated. Unpopular opinion, I know.

    Didn’t slow down against Barboza.

    He was notable less energetic with his movement midway through Rd 2. Tends to use a lot of strength on his power shots.
