Top 3 Current UFC Underachievers

Again, curious what others think. By underachiever I mean guys you know are very good and would bet on in almost any fight, but just have not come through. My top 3:

1. Wanderlei Silva
2. Chuck Liddell
3. Mirko Crocop

Not sure I agree with your list at all. Wandy lost to Chuck and Rampage, hardly fights he should have been anywhere near 100% to win. Chuck has lost to Rampage, Jardine and Evans, all top 10 guys. Cro Cop isn't even in the UFC right now.

I'd go with something more like:

1) Karo
2) Shogun
3) Thiago Tavares

Not necessarily all top guys, but all guys who have a ton of talent, and even despite Thiago's win last night, aren't showing it.

couldnt agree more with Karo. He has sucked since Diego knocked out his magic talent tooth years ago. This fight was an improvement, but i think in saying so it makes it that much more shameful. It wasn't a great fight.

Shogun,I wouldn't say underachiever... I think his competition in pride wasn't as fierce or as advanced as what he has to face in the UFC. He also lost to Griffin because of a knee problem and then they made him fight mark coleman who should be in a retirement home someplace... Id say its more about his physical condition and poor matchmaking.

Thiago Tavares I can agree with. Sometimes he shows up and sometimes he doesn't.

I think my list would be:
1: Spencer Fischer- Bottom ten LW and never goes anywhere.
2. Matt Serra- he has all the tools, but he just can't win (convincingly- random KOs of champs notwithstanding).
3. Rich Franklin- sure, he puts on a good fight, but I feel like he's lacking something that would propel him back into being champion material. I think 3 months with greg jackson's camp would improve his abilities and make him perform better.
