GSP's loss vs. Serra, oh wait...
Chuck vs. Rashad was the first fight that popped into my mind. He was never the same again after that...

GSP after his loss to Serra changed his style a lot.

Obviously CC and Chuck's first brutal losses basically sent their careers downhill...

Marquardt, IMO got way more awesome after his loss to Anderson Silva. Plus he started rocking the Jewfro after that

Henderson dropping him in his last fight in Pride right after that didn't help either. Than the fight with Chuck, it's not like Wand has lost to a bunch of cans since than. If he loses to Bisping, than I'll agree but fighting that many high quality fighters in a row can take it's toll.

Rich Franklin utterly destroying Loiseau and then stealing his soul.

David was never, ever the same after that long, glorious beating.

That's a good one! We will see how his future goes, but I could definitely see that as a turning point.


But from what I see, Hardy and Thiago are just plain better fighters, so it doesn't need to be a huge turning point. But this is still a good call.

Chuck dropping his hands and Rashad OOPS POW SURPRISE!

CC HK'd into oblivion by GG, and scaring the shit out of Herb Dean "OMG he's dead" flying across the octagon.

Rampage's knockout of Liddell. He hasn't had a ko or a blowout win since.

I know there were other factors, but Ricco has never been the same since Big Tim knocked him on his ass.

Randy ruined Pedro the second time they fought. He's been horribly inconsistent ever since.

Winner of it all Ricco Rodriguez loses to Tim Sylvia. The guy was considered the unstoppable monster who was the future of the sport. I think we know how that turned out.
