I think there are alot of guys being overlooked in the UFC right now, because alot of the fans are just looking at the promos.
For starters, I agree with everybody who said that Luke Cummo is getting overlooked. I've always thought the guy was a decent fighter and he's exciting to watch too.
Personally, though, I think there are two guys who just aren't getting their due in this organization:
Houston Alexander gets alot of attention, but most of it is people talking about how he's all hype. That's a load of bullsh*t. He's spent under 2 minutes in the Octagon and he stomped two of the better standup fighters in the UFC at 205 pounds. While people will say that Legionarius isn't legit, he's a great boxer (which is why he get taken down so much) and Houston tore through him like a wet paper bag. The same for Jardine.
Second, I think Melvin Guillard is very, very underrated. I think that he and Frank Edgar are the two most explosive fighters at 155 right now and I wish that Melvin hadn't made the stupid mistake of getting caught in that guillotine against Stevenson, because he's a better fighter than that. I don't feel like anybody is talking about his hands, and as far as they go, they're probably the most dangerous weapons in the UFC's 155 pound division. Honestly, I'd rather see Guillard vs. Edgar or Guillard vs. Huerta than either of those guys fighting their upcoming opponents. Personally, I think the UFC is trying to make them posterboys, and avoiding doing that with Melvin because of his attitude.
Still, I think there are alot of underrated fighters in the sport right now, those are just the ones I'm upset about.
