    Now that he has retired...

    How do you consider him in retrospective?

    Is he an all time great?

    To be fair the men's divisions under 145lbs would NEVER have taken off in America if it wasn't for the Cali Kid.


    Dude gets his props for bringing the spotlight to the lighter divisions.

    He ducked Andy Dick. Andy wanted some and Faber wanted nothing to do with him, he told the story himself!

    Mind you Andy was drunk/high with his pants undone in a hotel room but whatever.

    He was never good enough to beat the best. He'll be remember as a good fighter, but never an all time great.

    'Never good enough' might be overstating but yeah, the absolute best did pass him up and he was never quite able to catch them.

    Still elite, still very respectable with a top 3 tiny dude career.

    Made money, took care of his money and seemed to love the life. Very very respectable.

    Edit: lol - I'm talking about him like he ded. He not ded, right?
