It sucked horribly when Big Nog lost to Mir both times but other than that one, the only real losses that really bothered me much was when James McSweeney got eliminated from TUF Heavyweights (I trained with him) and when Rashad Evans lost to Jon Jones as I thought he had a real shot of beating him. I've predicted quite a few fights wrong but those are the only real ones I can recall bothering me. On the otherhand, I do get disappointed when I think a fight is going to be close or a good fight and it isn't

Fedor losing to Werdum, then losing to Bigfoot, and especially losing to Dan Henderson. Those 3 in a row were very hard for me to swallow as a Fedor fan. Also, Machida vs Jones was a hard one to swallow cuz Jones is such a prick. And lets not forget BJ Penn vs Jon Fitch, Fitch totally won that fight and they gifted BJ a draw I still haven't come to terms with this one.

Franklin vs Le comes to mind. I really thought Franklin was going to dominate. After the first two exchanges I thought Franklin was a far superior fighter, and would eventually open up and get the KO. Then boom, right hook.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

This for me exactly. I thought Rich had the perfect style to just make Le look as old and out of date as he is. But when that punch landed right on the button I didn't jump up and scream or anything, I just put my head in my hands, rubbed my eyes, and sure enough they saw it right the first time. Legit depressed for a couple of beers.

Exactly. Nothing a couple beers couldn't fix though. Realistically, I knew Franklin wasn't in his prime anymore. It wasn't nearly as upsetting as when Andy beat Franklin. Even then, I was more impressed with Andy than I was disappointed in Franklin. It was one of those times where no one looked down on Franklin for being that bad, they just looked at Andy and knew he was really that good.

Big Nog vs Mir ll. The legendary warrior was healthy that time. He was pumped. He was trained. He was kicking ass. Then...the worst outcome ever. Finished in his own art, seriously injured and incapacitated by his big mouth rival due to the dumbest judment error ever. I did not cry, but I could. Still can't focus too much on that scene. That's why his camp, including Anderson were so emotive when he sub Herman.

Nice thread. Congratulatin to the OP.

The nog/mir losses will always hurt, as did the nog vs valasquez as it was a pretty violent way to finish someone.

I was gutted for fitch vs hendricks.

Brocks loss vs valasquez hurt. I really wanted him to prove himself.

Franklin vs. Le was very hard to swallow for me.
Not because I dislike Le, but because I knew it was a winnable fight for Rich, and he made a stupid mistake and got caught.

Franklin vs. Henderson was tough for me as I was sure Franklin got the decision. However, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we were all treated to one of the greatest and most satisfying knockouts in MMA history in Henderson/Bisping.

Cain losing to dos Santos was tough.

Cruz/Faber was really frustrating for me because I absolutely love Faber and I loathe Cruz.
