liddell and arlovski come to mind, although i still wouldnt paticularly want to pick a fight with either of them!

Is this topic about fighters who were only thought to be good, but turned out bad, or fighters who just crashed and burned hard? or both?

The first comes to mind is Soko. I remember a friend of mine saying (when I didn't no much about MMA), that he was thought to be the next LHW contender in the UFC. Well.. Before his debut, anyways.

Ad you can see, I'm a huge Cro Cop fan, and I agree with you. He came over and has looked lackluster ever since. I'd only hate you if you argued that crap that he was never any good in the first place

I would also add "The Crow" to the list. He is still one of my favorite fighters, but he has become forgettable lately.

Luke Cummo as well. Yeah, he was never huge or anything, but putting up a good fight against Joe Stevenson in the TUF finale had him off to a solid start. Then he lost a few boring LnP decisions and was relegated to the undercards, and then cut. Don't forget the DUI. Sad times for another of my favorite fighters.

I didn't know Luke Cummo got a DUI on top of everything else. That sucks. I hope some other promotion will pick him up.

Mikey Burnett is the first one that comes to mind. Former member of the Lion's Den, lost a match with Pat Miletich for the first ever UFC welterweight championship match and was an amateur golden gloves boxer. He was on the Ultimate Fighter Season 4 where he was submitted by Din Thomas.

He had some sort of chronic neurological problem I thought, even before the headbutt into the wall.

I don't think that Chuck Liddell is a good one. He didn't start off great and then disappoint. He WAS great and then he got older. I mean if Chuck is in here then you have to throw in people like Mark Coleman and Jens Pulver. I think that they were all great and then they got too old and worn out to keep it up. Doesn't mean that crashed and burned though.

Thumbs up Comeback

Gomi is another one. His loss to Diaz was the first in a 1-3 skid that knocked him off of the top 10 rankings. Of course he is on a comeback so he might still have a future!
