Man, it's a good thing you put that "Period/" there that way we know it's a fact and unarguable.

Ty for your honesty. The thing was if anything guys like Aoki and Kawajiri were more overhyped then Gilbert. I'm don't hate Gilbert, but he's not even a top 5 LW right now. Period/
But just out of curiosity who it your top 5 LWs. Cause mine looks a little like this
#1 Benson Henderson
#2 Frankie Edgar
#3 Gray Maynard
#4 Nate Diaz
#5 Gilbert Melendez
Granted I know there are guys like Cerrone, Pettis, Guida (Who I think Gil wouldn't be able to keep off of him and beat), that are knocking at the top 5 door, but right now I think that is a pretty solid list there.
