    KOd Mendes
    KOd Thomas in a top prospect fight
    KOd Mizugaki in less than a minute
    decisioned top 3 P4P Dom in dominant fashion

    is now unquestionably #1 BW and P4P top 10

    another one 2005 Shogoon

    TKOd Kanehara
    TKOd Hampage
    Beat Hogerio in arguably FOTY
    TKOd Overeem and Arona on the same night

    went from unranked to top 3-5 P4P and unquestionably #1 LHW
