I agree with what your saying.
Like right now Garcia is currently number one and the best at 140. And beating him at 140 would mean you are beating the best in that division.
However i would say the following fighters are better than garcia at 140 and would beat him (Manny Pac, Marquez, Bradley, Peterson)
Yet Garcia deserves to be number one. Yet that doesn't mean there aren't fighters around that are better than him at that weight.
That's alls i meant by it.
