Now, you can do this two ways.

Who's the best fighter with a big hole in his game?

Brock Lesnar's a top fighter in the division and his standup is pretty abysmal. That's the easy call. I mean, watching When I watch Brock Lesnar box, I wonder who put four-ounce gloves on an 800 pound gorilla and put double sided tape on the bottoms of his feet.

Of good fighters, who's the one with the biggest hole in his game?

I love me some Anthony Johnson, but that man's jiu-jitsu is facepalm worthy. It makes me sad.

Rashad has only been KO'd once, kinda hard to say he has a weak chin.
Rashad has been shown to have a terrible chin. He is very easily rocked. His fights with silva, and Rampage he was hit with one solid shot, and took a full round to recover. and the only reason Silva didnt finish him was because he chose to taunt him. Once he gets rocked, he takes far to long to recover.

Nah, Thiago had a bad back and ran out of gas. He didn't have anything left before that, that's why he kept taunting to try to get Rashad to come to him. Rashad was stupid and did but once he didn't get KO'd, Thiago couldn't do shit but hope Rashad came to him again.

Silva actually does have pretty bad TDD. Blame it on his unwillingness to change his stand up stance or style, but he leaves himself open. I'm not just saying because of the Sonnen fight, I have said it about him for a while. Granted this is the third time in the UFC he has proven why he doesn't mind the ground as he won by sub again. I think he just doesn't care. To get him down you have to come within his striking range, and if you get him to the ground his lanky limbs make him just as dangerous standing up.
hmmm well you might have a point, i was thinking that he hasn't been taken down many times. But that could be because he hasn't faced alot of wrestlers. Hendo took him down as well so i guess his TDD is kinda mediocre.
Or like you said he just doesnt care if he gets taken down or not since he's been winning anyway.

I don't think he's comfortable exchanging, and he panics during exchanges. He's not awful, but that's a hole in his game.

We are talking about fighters with the biggest holes.

Brock Lesnar has to improve his striking, and i'm pretty sure that after 116 he is going to do it. He just does not seem comfortable during exchanges.

Mousasi's loss to King Mo really made everybody think about his TDD defense, since he was talked of being the future of the division, i look at him as a top fighter with a big hole.
