    those are the most elite he has fought in his 15 year career. can someone please explain why he didn't go on to achieve all that he should have? bar sem schilt, why did he drop fights to rico and saki? do you see a future for him, if he shall ever return?

    more concerning are his losses to gerges and
    what weird comparisons you make and you dont jhave your facts straight either. hari and gerges fought once and it ended in a dq, they never fought again

    ghita's biggest win is zimmerman?

    he has no top 5 wins if ya ask me and all he had was potential. he was a bit of a lazy fighter as well, it cost him alot of decisions.

    He has top 5 wins, you foul. He was a top 3 anyway. Moreover, he was robbed at least once against Verhoeven.

    Not a very good example since Schilt - Zimmerman was one of the biggest out-classings ever at top-level. Zimmerman was challenging (considered number 2) for Schilts glory HW-belt and before the fight some people thought of it as a possible changing of guards (mostly because Schilts age, but still). Schilt absolutely battered Zimmerman, and was much more aggresive than usual, for the whole fight, it could have been stopped much earlier. Zimmerman had no chance and I am not sure he hit Schilt once.

    i think he absolutely destroys anybody who is not elite level but falls a touch short in the elite fights. His training arrangements have often been a mess and he has also had a lot of chaos in his life outside the ring thanks to his crazy ex and her bullshit.

    he wasn't robbed against Verhoeven in either fight imo; at Glory 10 you mean? Rico looked ready to go another ten rounds and i think outlanded Daniel in the fight if i remember rightly. That was a sick fight though. That last 30 seconds when most fighters would coast for the bell, they went at it big time

    Right click on gif, click "copy image address", click the button above the comment box that looks like a mountain with a sun above it(between the smiley face and the roll of film) and paste image address in the box next to Image URL.

    Ghita out landed Rico 2 out of three rounds in Glory 10, but he looked sluggish after the halfway point of the fight while Rico was getting sharper and more effective as the fight when on finishing strong and impressively. So no it was close but it was no robbery. Ghita was the kind of guy who could ko anybody and beat some top names like no one else could but he let the rest of his life influence and hold back his career. Rico said it best physically and skill wise they were even the difference was that Ghita would show up mentally weak.
