Shinya has be a top LW for years but, truthfully I think if he came state side he would drop in the ranks drastically. That being said I honestly dont see him making to many appearances out side of Asia. He seems content with fighting over there and I dont blame him if the money is right.

Talented dude but whoever does his match ups suck! Worse than ever I want to see him fight again in America, preferably in the UFC...you know before he is old and his time has past...like another I know and loved...Fedor.

well getting KO'd by Alvarez and beaten handedly by Melendez has hurt his stock but he is still a top 10 talent. If he comes here I'd love to see him vs Sotiropolous and Bocek

He's a lot like Melendez rankings wise. I just don't feel confident ranking him in the top ten until he faces off with someone in the UFC.

He 'beat' George Sotiropoulos in 2006 (DQ (Groin Strike)).
