Well, Abbadi was the worst ever to step in an Octagon, at least in recent memory, but here are a few others that I think should be brought up.

Houston Alexander has already been mentioned, and he's definitely an awful grappler. He has no awareness of his arms and no ability to defend the clinch.

JT Money, while usually completely unfit for discussion, is right up there. I'm aware that he's a decent wrestler, but he has the submission defense of a retarded gorilla.

Of any of the fighters at the top tier of the UFC, I think that Rampage is one of the worst grapplers. His performances on the ground have never been impressive.

Heath Herring was right up there, to be sure, as are Cheick Kongo and Antoni Hardonk.

I think it was TUF 4 (not positive); some guy gets caught in a triangle and taps. Afterwards, he gets up and asks his opponent what submission he just got caught in. ("It was a triangle??? Oh, man, ...ok. ")

every one of thiago silva's opponents were basically cans....one was a sloppy polish striker, houston, and that mendes ....houston and mendes clearly had no ground game as they were mounted in seconds...

Mendes is actually solid on the ground. Not world class or anything but he's actually no slouch.

Thiago really is amazing on the ground but to be fair he hasn't faced a good MMA grappler yet so we will have to wait and see against Lyoto.
