Josh has a great record against a group of guys who have great records themselves. Why wouldn't he be top 10?
Pancrase has legit rankings in their org, so if they let you fight to become KOP, then obviously you have the wins to back it up.
People downplay his win over Kondo because Kondo is smaller. Well guess what, smaller guys win fights all the time. Obviously Kondo thought he could win. Josh alos ended the perfect winning record of Jimmy Ambriz, a fighter who is fairly heavier than Josh.
I love how beating Semmy Schilt is part of what puts Fedor, Nogueira and Kharitonov where they are today, yet people don't want to acknowledge Josh beating him.
I also love seeing people exclude Josh with the reason of inactivity, yet they put Frank Trigg, Pequeno, Machida, Genki Sudo, David Terrell, Arlovski, Arona, 'Kid' Yamamoto, Matt Serra, Pedro Rizzo, Bang Ludwig, Vitor Belfort, Bustamante, Din Thomas, Lee Murray, Mark Coleman and Tito Ortiz on their lists. All of which have faught fewer times than Josh in the last few years.
And yes, Josh does a couple of soft wins on his recent dance card, but even Fedor has Yuji Nagata and Naoya Ogawa on his.
Hey, if you hate Josh, just admit it. Don't pretend he doesn't have credentials though.
