He never dominated the LW division the way Fedor, Jones, Anderson, GSP, or Aldo dominated their respective divisions, so it will be easier for someone to surpass him than many other divisions. But IMO he still is the GOAT of a very volatile division. At his peak, his performances were spectacular, including those against the two best welterweights of the time: Hughes and GSP, who were much larger. On paper, his accomplishments may not seem that impressive now, but nobody at lightweight has made the sort of impact that BJ did during his best years. It was great to watch.
