I agree. Nonetheless, he is a great fighter.

Someone's next reply may be that the word "great" has been devalued itself and thrown around too loosely. Point taken. But either way you slice it, a guy with 59 wins, only 3 losses, 13 title defenses with no end in sight, has to be considered "great" by any standard.
You can cut down his opposition level all you like, winning is winning and how you win (as in dominant) matters even more. If he was squeaking out split decisions in FOTY's, someone may even give him some bonus points instead of punishing him. I prefer the one sided beat downs.
