Even if we look at it from the perspective of "went on to become ATGs," it gets even more absurd.

A fighter's resume should be based on how their opponents are viewed at the time, not based on hindsight. I'll give you an example.

Paul Williams and Sergio Martinez - Williams' stock may have dropped substantially in the tail end of his career, but Martinez still gets credit for being 1 of only 2 people who had the balls to face him when EVERYBODY from 147 to 160 was ducking him like their lives depended on it.
He backtracked and then try to weasel out by constantly shifting focus points, switching to alts and called for help to try to soften the schooling that i was dishing to him and now disappeared.
