Most Under Rated Fighter

Now nut huggery and band wagoning are rife on this forum and I suppose its the nature of MMA and individual sports its not a criticism. BJ,Lyota, Fedor and others get a lot of time devoted to them here so I thought I would try to mix it up.

Who do you think is under rated and does not get the credit he deserves? I really like Spencer Fisher I know he got his handed to him in his last fight but he always brings it and is responsible for one of the best knock outs I've ever seen against Matt Wiman.

Any others you feel should get more praise?



Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

Evan Tanner, Dave Terrell, Frank Edgar, Nate Quarry, Tyson Griffin...just a few i feel are better than most think.

Thales Leites could be pretty decent this year also.

Spencer Fisher is defiantly one. Many are disregarded that should get more love. I can't think of to many others at the moment but there are quite a few.

Some good ones are mentioned above.

Ye Frankie Edgar is under rated. He is at the moment in my list of top 5 lightweights in the UFC.

Cheick Kongo is severly underrated.

i think frank edgar and tyson griffin both get a good amount of hype. frank just isn't well known thats all.

i think chris leben, tim sylvia, patrick cote, matt serra and jason lambert are underrated.

especially matt serra, most people don't think he has a chance against most guys in the division, yet he dominated the top dog.

joe stevenson's been underrated as of late as well, or maybe its just that hes going up against the severely overrated bj penn.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

Agreed although his ground game and wrestling game are needing major improvement.

Also the man in my avatar Elvis Sinosic...He is sh*t on because of his record.

Tim Sylvia majorly is underrated...People think he is really bad when he is top 5 easily.
