Who do you think has the most impressive losses on his record?

I've been thinking about it, who has the most impressive losses on their record?

Here's my example. This guy gets almost no recognition from solid fans, and zero recognition from casual fans.

Ricardo Arona.

I honestly think this guy has the toughest view of MMA fighters ever. He's basically only ever lost to the best, and faces hard guys routinely.

He was one of the first and last people to arguably take a round from Fedor, in only Ricardo's 3rd fight.

He's only lost to:
Fedor (decision)
Rampage (famous powerbomb)
Shogun (TKO)
Wanderlei Silva (split decision, in his prime)
Sokoudjou (KO)

He's beaten: Overeem, Eastman, Lister, Hendo, Sakuraba, Jeremy Horn, Ninja Rua.

I really think if he had been given easier opponents at first and built his way up steadily to harder opponents, he would have been huge. Imagine if he beat Ninja, Hendo, and Overeem in a row in his prime?

Losses - Vitor Belfort, Dan Henderson, Anderson Silva x2 and Lyoto Machida, basically a who's who of 185 and 205 champs that are all still very relivent today.
