And what about the supposed talent that can't get into the UFC because he is taking up a place on the roster.
It is not just a matter of him being outside the top 5, it is also a matter of how long he has been outside the top 5.
What other fighter with similar results(note I also specified no significant fan following), has lasted this long?
