    Top 10 he's one unpredictable guy, as long as we're making shit up throw in some crazy North Korean shoulder augmentations and he's top 5.

    KZ/Bermudez would be an easy FOTY.

    Top 10 borderline top 5. Would be cool to see him come back fresh and injury free and better than ever.

    Either one slot above Elkins or Kawajiri. No way is he top 10.

    His best wins are what? Leonard Garcia and Poirier? One of which actually beat him a couple of fights before. The win against Hominick was nice, but that fight went for less than 10 seconds and KZ just totally surprised him

    The Poirier fight was good, but he just hasn't done enough. He seemed to make his name really in that first Garcia fight, but throwing haymakers and eating shots isn't that impressive.

    I think the top 10 beats him pretty easy.

    Loses to red, beats green and 50/50 with blue

    I think he'd struggle with the grapple-fuckers whom have good chins and sub defense and cardio. He also would struggle against very technical strikers with good TDD. Everyone else I think he would either beat or at least have a good chance to beat

    Top 7. Maybe even Top 5.

    Kz vs Holloway
    Kz vs Swanson
    Kz vs Lamas
    Kz vs Bermudez

    All interest me

    Top ten for sure. I'd love to see him and Cub fight.

    Also, goddamn that Featherweight top ten is phenomenal. Definitely the deepest division in the sport and only getting better.
