That said its hard to have him in the top 10 even despite his name, fame and making the UFC a name brand. That guy along with Chuck was once the face of the brand. He also has some great wins. His most significant win was probably over Ken. In probably one of the most brutal displays of GnP he literally destroyed whatever hype Ken had left.
He did evolve. He worked on his striking, submission attacks and defence. The game simply moved too quickly for him and he never had the ability to catch up.
