Also

He fought top ten guys when the division was basically new and had only ten guys or whatever.

I'm not trying to **** on his career but like most he didn't have what it takes to be champion of the world. Makes the champions all the more impressive.

@Flying Frontkick I'm guessing you live in an interesting Town. Also that's as good a method for raping Deer as any I suppose.
