    Won 4 rounds out of 10 against Jones and Cormier combined, taking them both down in the process and then loses to Rumble and all of a sudden is overrated and never that good.

    Hasn't even turned 30 by the way.

    Gustaffson was always my friend

    I think Sherdog is just racist against white people, that's all

    Wouldn't say he's overrated. Injuries have fucked him up a bit and his 3 losses to the 3 best LHW's leaves him in a weird spot.

    Who has he beat ?

    Best win is Manuwa.

    2nd place in a title fight is still last place.

    My opinion he is still Jones and Cormier's biggest threat, even more than Johnson.

    Not athletic and explosive enough to get that crazy love from Sherdog.

    I bet you thought that would sound edgy and smart, but that's a really dumb thing to say.

    Great fighter no doubt, better than most in his division and pretty much on the same level as the elite in his division.

    He gets a lot of hate because at first glance his record doesn't look that impressive, but if you have watched his full career in the UFC and seen his wars with DC and Jones I think it's hard not to have a lot of respect for the guy.

    I'm not a massive Gus fan (I don't really have a current favourite fighter at LHW), but wasn't that Rumble fight a bit controversial? He's given the two champs close fights and has a controversial finish loss after a clash of heads against Rumble.

    When you have 2 close wars with the best guys in your division it really doesn't matter who you have beaten, those two performances alone show you belong at the top.

    Either Manuwa or Shogun. Both are currently in the top 10 at LHW, with Manuwa being top 5 if you don't count Jones.

    I believe Shogun was top 5 at the time he beat him, and Manuwa is currently top 5 in the UFC according to their rankings.
