    I just find it interesting hes beaten more top guys so far.

    Its like a Fedor/Nog situation. Fedor was undoubtedly superior and beat him soundly H2H but Nog actually beat more top fighters

    All TS is doing is trying to open your eyes to how good Joey actually is.

    I made a thread not so long ago about Joey going down as a Pound for Pound great in my books, and that's because the guy has only lost to 2 men ever and they are both all-time greats.

    Demetrious and Dominick could very well be in the top 10 argument for the best fighters of all-time, when it's all said and done. They are most definitely in the top 5 in the world at this moment.

    Joey had super competitive fights with both men at a time, and decisions could have swung the other way.

    Benavidez III is the only fight that makes sense for Demetrious, other than the super-fight with Cruz at 135lbs.

    You forget that JB fought MM who is a p4p great 2 times and Cruz 2 times. That's 4 p4p greats...MM only fought Cruz once and JB wasn't on the p4p so he's only got one match against a p4p great and is 0-1!...
