Most overrated fighter by division.
 
Who is the most overrated fighter in each devision in your opinion, Big names only, champs can also be named.

Heavyweight: Frank Mir

Light heavyweight: Texas Glov

Middleweight: Sonnen ( he hadn't fought Lightheavy yet)

Welterweight : Kempmann

Lightweight: Gonna go with the champ Benson Henderson.

Not going to dive lower than these devision's, feel free to tho.

HW: Mark Hunt.

LHW: Shogun by a landslide. He hasn't looked impressive in years. How he is still in the top 10 is beyond me.

MW: Weidman. Not because he's bad, he's actually very good. But people act as though he's a genuine threat to Silva.

WW: Diaz. He's been given favorable match ups. Give him a guy like Ellengerber or Woodley and I don't think he'll do as well.

LW: Edgar. People still say to this day that he's the uncrowned LW champ:laugh:

FW: Edgar. Sites actually have him ranked as #2 when he's 0-1 in the division.

No one really ever talks about the other divisions so I can't think of anyone overreated.

HW - Mir/Kongo
LHW - Glover
MW - Mark Munoz
WW - Tarec/Nick Diaz ( can't believe someone said Koscheck pfft)
LW - Frankie/Cerrone
FW - Guida/Lamas
BW - Faber
Flyweight - You could say Creepy based off his UFC record, though I still think he is the best in the weight class. Benavidez is overrated imo

I agree 100%, I think he has just had a couple mental lapses in the cage. IMO he beat Mouse straight up in the 1st fight. In his fight with Joe he wasn't really outclassed in any aspect. He just wasn't active enough. I still think he is the most talented guy in the division and can beat anyone.

HW - Big Foot Silva, getting a title shot due to a didgey knee and a HW going through withdrawl.
LHW - Little Nog, Some have him in the top five over Davis/Bader men that beat him.
MW - Michael Bisping, 1-4 in big fights still in the top ten
WW - Jake Ellenberger, bad cardio terrible top control, close fights to guys not in the UFC.
LW - Donald Cerrone, Good fighter not an elite fighter got most of his rep by can crushing in one year.
FW - Erik Koch, one breath away from a title shot has lost his two biggest fights and has hardly established himself at the top of the division.
BW -Takeya Mizugaki, 5-5 yet he was given some huge fights that in hindsight he likely shouldn't have gotten.
