He wouldn't lose to a guy like Guida (most likely) but he'd lose pretty convincingly to guys like Maynard, Benson, Nate (I don't care that they're teammates), and Miller IMO - also likely to lose to guys like Pettis and Cerrone.
I could certainly be wrong, but there's no reason to assume anything else after his last few fights.
Agreed. Even if I'm wrong and he beats Guida in the rematch, there are still other fighters at the top who I feel have all the tools to either easily outclass or finish Gilbert. Most likely outclass.
