Cro Cop losing to Gonzaga is definitely one of them.

Kevin Randleman, after he lost to Fedor (although that can be attributed to his health problems as well), Houston Alexander (I thought, along with a big amount of people, that he was going to be the next big thing) after he lost to Thiago Silva.

Also, to the guy who said GSP after he got beaten by Serra, it doesn't really apply, because that loss made GSP better instead of worse.

Randy hasn't looked the same after eating 40 straight hammer fists from Brock.

This makes me want to start another thread: who benefited the MOST from a loss?

BJ for example, has become a much better fighter after losing to GSP.

I actually think BJ learned a lot from losing his first title fight to Jens Pulver.

Evan Tanner laying a beat down on David Terrel. One of my favorite fights ever for some reason. I don't think Terrel fought after that. Everyone though Terrel was going to be the next huge thing in MMA before that fight. You could see it in Terrel's face when Evan was pounding him against the cage that his spirit was totally broken. Man, I loved Evan Tanner.

Likewise, Arlovski's loss to Sylvia saw a new, more timid, Arlovski be born. He was afraid to get hit and never engaged as he did. In the third Sylvia fight and the Werdum fight he just seemed unwilling to engage. He even took a cheapshot victory over Cruz. Though it was Cruz's own fault for not seeing Andre's fist cocked back for 30 seconds and a bit of the ref's (Herb Dean I believe) for not standing them up.

Brandon Vera's loss to Sylvia saw him become more timid and unwilling to unleash his strikes. Up until then he was considered the next big thing at Heavyweight and a potential future champ, now he's kind of a middle-of-the-pack guy.

yeah...that hurt considering the fact Jens Pulver is my hero/first exposure to MMA


I gotta go with Houston Alexander getting beat by Eric Schafer....the KO from Thiago was bad, but after that we saw a REAL slump....
