    Yes he is, he's had 7 fights in Pride and went 5-2, he's beaten Dan Severn and Don Frye respectively, he's fought more times abroad than in his home country and in his last fight beat the Shark Fights Chanpion who has a couple of good wins against the likes of Jason Guida who's well seasoned. Like it or not he isn't a bog standard domestic level fighter.

    Oh and in the last 4 fights part of your comment, I look forward to watching you fight Pudz, Sapp and Lashley.

    Lets not flirt round the issue I said I was a high level Mma fighter, do you agree or disagree with this statement ?

    Do you think I'm a high level Mma fighter ?

    It depends what any individual classes as high level?

    Your take on high level may different for the next guy. As it is opinion based then no-one can be right or wrong.

    If you base the UFC as high level then your probably not high level but if you look domestically then I would say you are a high level.

    Your experiences have been good so no-one can take that away from you and that you have acheived things that most other domestic fighters will never achieve in their fighting careers

    Yeah I agree with you it's alway based on a person option. That's why I was asking I didn't think the comment "I fight mma at a high level would be that debatable in my humble option of course. I'm not I the UFC I get that and that is a very high level. But so was Pride. The statement options are like arse holes comes to mind.

    I think when you say a term as loosely as "high-level MMA fighter" you're leaving a broad subject to debate. Personally, on a domestic level there is probably 4 or 5 fighters who I would back to take the victory over yourself. European level, there's far too many names to even think about who have the skill-set to defeat you.

    I don't aim to take anything away from your achievements, but what I would say is when you put yourself on a perch such as you have, you're going to get a few posters trying to knock you off it.

    And in regards to me fighting Pudz, Sapp & Lashley.. Why would I want to do that? I earn a perfectly good living without having to fight guys like this to earn a big payday.

    This is irrelevant though, it's hypothetical, I can think of a good few people who'd beat everyone who's ranked number 1 on the domestic scene, they're already fighting to a 'high domestic level', he is fighting further a field against guys who would easily beat our domestic fighters e.g Bobby Lashley. Regardless of who you are, there are always people out there who can/will beat you, nobody will ever be undefeated in MMA. Based purely on the fighters he's faced over the last 10 years and the shows he's fought on, he is fighting at a high level.

    Right ok, I don't need a list of everyone you think might beat me it was a simply question. Do you think I was right in my statement that I'm a high level MMA Fighter ?

    Don't worry m8 you haven't taken anything away from my achievements. I think your right, when you fight, write blogs, do videos people are going to "try and knock you off your perch" I don't have a problem with this as I can always justify what I've said or written even if people don't agree. I only ask them to do the same I.E in this case i'm asking you if you agree with my statement about being a high level Mma fighter or not.

    Sorry you losed me competletly here, rewind. Why would you want to fight these guys ?

    I have no idea, I didn't ask you to.

    I didn't know you were a Mma fighter and I'm not suggesting you do.

    Is there something wrong with "fighting guys like these ?"
    I'm not sure if I've missed something. Please answer all my questions, thanks Steve

    In response to your questions asked;

    Do I think you're a high-level MMA Fighter ? This again is all down to personal opinion, but in my eyes no. And this isn't just because you're not in the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator etc.. I just think high-level is a very vague word to use to describe somebodies credentials as an MMA fighter. What would you defy as a high-level MMA fighter James, if you can justify everything you write about yourself?

    That response wasn't to you but Grizzly, who stated he would like to see me fight your last four fights.

    And in my opinion, it all depends where you want to go in your career James, if you're happy fighting these guys then I'm happy for you. But if you wanted to class yourself as a high-level fighter, why not fight a Neil Grove's again or a Stav Economou for example?
