I suppose this statement is technically correct... But the guy has one legitimate loss to Condit, who fought GSP closer than anyone has in ages, and one freak rib injury loss against Maia. Before that, you have to go back to 09 for a razor thin split decision loss that got overturned to a NC when Karo failed his drug test.

He probably loses to Maia anyways since Maia is a monster at 170 and made easy work of Fitch... But I don't think DHK would be a big underdog in fights against Kampmann (#7) or Saffiedine (#8). He's also a bad matchup stylistically for Nick Diaz (#3), who hasn't faced a grappler in ages aside from a puffed up and washed up Penn. I don't think he would impress that much against any of them but he's certainly capable of imposing his gameplan against all of those guys.
