While he's not my absolutely favorite, It certainly was sad to see Cro-Cop get brutally KO'd by Gonzaga.

Werdum submitting Fedor was a hard one too. While I knew at that point in his career he was going to lose sooner or later, I certainly didn't think it would be Werdum, and defiantly didn't think It would be that quick.

Hmm... when Frankie got robbed the second time, that was pretty tough. Chael getting beat in the second Anderson fight sucked just because I was hoping for a good fight, turned out Anderson really was hurt in the first fight.

Damn I was going to post up all of his fights then you had posted it. I still can't get over the fact he never landed one...all I wanted was one LHK KO...instead he gets a RHK KO from Napao. That damn brute.

GSP vs Serra 1 was pretty bad. Lyoto vs Shogun II was actually pretty shocking. Chuck vs Franklin cuz you knew that would be his last fight ever.

Wand vs Rampage III.

Bisping vs Hendo due to the KO punch and the online reaction.

Vitor losing to randy couture by doctor stoppage. And even when he beat couture by cut. Both of those were tough just because of his life situation.



EDIT

Brock losing to reem hurt too. While i wasn't a HUGE fan or anything.. I certainly thought brock would destroy the reem.

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

Worst one had to be when Shogun KO'd Machida. I just never saw it coming.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

There have been a few that were tough because the guy I liked lost, but generally speaking if I feel like it was a fair loss a good stopage or decision I don't get too upset.

Fitch v Hendricks was pretty tough to swallow only because I felt like Fitch had survived shots like that from GSP but that was probably about the hardest one to take as a clean loss. Most of the losses that would be hard to take I saw coming, Shogun v Jones, Wand v Leben. When Rory got stopped by Condit that was rough.

I generally only go ape shit when I feel like it was a horrible call and then it usually has little to do with the guy that won or lost just the terrible call.

I got pretty pissed about Shogun v Machida I. And not to be that guy but Diaz v Condit. I got pretty heated after that fight, nothing to do with the way Condit fought, I was disappointed it wasn't more of a barn burner but I had scored it 3-2 for Diaz.

I just watched the Condit vs Rory fight again like 2 hours ago and i have to say that i forgot how well Rory did in rounds 1 and 2. Round 1 he completely kicked Condits ass and round 2 not as much but kept kicking his ass. Round 3 Condit turned it up and beat Rory down all round BUT he never got the tko finish. It was actually a bad stoppage by the ref. He stopped the fight when Condit was beginning to lay his head on Rorys chest after throwing a blow. And with 9 seconds left in the fight it should have been a decision win for Rory.


My toughest loss

Mike Swick losing to Okami. That killed me on the inside. There were couple of girls over too that i didnt know too well. So when my eyes got teary i went to the bathroom to wash my face. Next day my friend girl tells me her cousin thinks im hot and likes me. I off-course respond with 'Well ofcourse she likes me... look at me' and 5min later she tells her i said that and then her cousin says "Well i dont like him anymore".

Good times...

Chuck/Rampage 2, I was sure Chuck was going to avenge his first loss to Rampage. As it turned out it was the beginning of the end.
