    He has no notable wins and his striking is basic as hell. He lost to friggin Matt Brown who got his ass kicked by Ellenburger and Johnny Hendricks. Why do people overate him so much? Woodley should only be fighting money fights with the best like GSP and Diaz. Or perhaps a catch weight superfight with Eddie Alvarez.

    Well Rory beat the current champ, and Hendricks beat the former champ. Those two instances happened long AFTER Thompson lost to Brown, which is his last defeat. Since then, he beat the two names above.

    Pretty hard to deny Thompson a titleshot at this point. This is a money fight to me. Because i'd pay my money to see it. Not fucking Woodley/ Diaz haha

    Beat Whittaker, Hendricks, Rory, Cote. Thats a good streak to have. Yeah he lost to Matt Brown via L&P but since training with Weedman his defensive wrestling has improved a ton

    Prove you understand the definition of "overrated" and show us your 170 top 5 then, TS.

    Who do you rank above Thompson?

    He's not overrated but I don't think he'll win the title.

    Him just demolishing Hendricks really impressed me, I thought the Rory fight was pretty lame he didn't look like himself and was super passive, I'm referring to McDonald.

    Your mom is overrated
     
  18. He's advanced since the Matt Brown loss, and pretending that Matt Brown is a scrub makes you lose all credibility.

    You know Conor has 0 wins at welterweight right?...

    Outside of Conor (who isn't a legit welterweight) Nate's last win at welterweight was in 2010.

    50-45'ing Rory is the best win of any active WW.
