    After Jones and Cormier? Is that fair to place him as number 3?

    don't think so. just doesn't really have the quantity or even that much quality wins. third best? we could talk about it. but just not the resume for greatest.

    Fuck no. It's not about who you might have beat if they all met in their primes. It's about putting a prolific career together and winning a belt at least once.

    Doesn't have the resume, but based on ability alone he is top2-3. DC was just a bad match up for him.

    He is the best MMA striker ever, never got outstruck, dropped or rocked on the feet.

    Potential wise? Yes. Unfortunately the reality is he didn’t continue fighting at a time when he was looking like a world beater. His consistency and inability to hone down on a singular weight class to truly make his stake in will prevent him from going down as a top3 at LHW. Guy had insane talent though.

    Nope. Probably the most power of any LHW. He shot DC's ass across the cage.

    For what? Being the 3rd best LHW for a few short years?

    Absolutely not...

    Shogun, Chuck, Rampage, Machida, Rashad, Tito, and Randy are all above him at least. Belts matter

    Christ.

    Most scary fighter I’ve seen in his prime.

    Shame his prime lasted about 35 minutes.

    Yes, sorry I don't care about hispter's definitions of "good striking". Effectiveness is what matters.
