Other then Brock Lesnar....

....who is/was the most overhyped fighter in UFC and PrideFC? I figure if I didn't exclude Brock Lesnar from the list I'll get 100 posts saying its him. While I'm at it I'll exclude Kimbo Slice as well even though he didn't belong to Pride or the UFC! Think outside the box and think of someone new!

Who, in your opinion, was overhyped by these two organizations?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

What do you mean by over hyped? like over rated?

If you do, i wouldnt say Brock was at all over hyped, if anything he was under rated because a lot people thought he was he was going destroyed in the UFC.

Roger wasn't really over hyped either, they tried to over hype him, but i dont think many people thought he was no1 contender material.

I'd have to say that Michael Bisping is right up there with the most over hyped fighters ever.

I alway felt like Baroni was hugely over hyped too, in the UFC and Pride

Roger was definitely overrated, about 45-50% thought he'd beat Ken Flo. Kenny is clearly on another level. The pro picks (on sherdog) was like 40-2 for Kenny or something.. yet the overall mma pick was like 55-45 for Kenny..

I remeber Sokoudjou was extremely hyped coming into the UFC. Then Machida dominated him. That was so sweet.

True, and i luv machida

But he does have wins over Lil Nog and Arona (both would be considered in the top 10/15) in Pride, so i don't think he was overhyped, + he put a clinic on Nakamura

Saying something like saying that, is like saying Shogun was overrated....

Brock isnt overhyped, he proved that he's real in the herring fight.
As for overhyped fighter, I'd say CB dalloway from TUF 7

Also don't think Lesnar is over hyped, you can't over hype a guy like that. It would be like saying Tyson was overhyped when he won the title.

As for other fighters, Tank Abott comes to mind. I mean he was always fun to watch, but you know... Other then that, its hard to say, seems like we're just getting into the hype these days. The old days it was just guys no one knew fighting.

I would say Kimbo hands down if you hadn't excluded him.
