GSP. Ever since his loss to Serra, he's been abusing his wrestling to it's fullest extent. He fears stand up and doesn't want to get TKO'd again. If he continues to use his wrestling, I doubt he'll ever lose(until he moves up to MW)

May be a bit premature, but I'd say Jon Jones "losing" to Hamill will do some good for Jone's career.

I would say...

Fitch losing to GSP (He isn't the most exciting but he gets the wins)
GSP losing to Serra (St. Pierre turned into GSP after this loss)
Mir losing to Lesnar (Mir looks more focused than ever)
Liddell losing to Couture (Liddell came back even stronger)
Penn losing to Pulver (Penn came back and took the title and has been dominant ever since)

Those are the only one's that I can think of right now.

The obvious one is GSP to Serra, the guy has been wrecking people since than.

Honarable mentions-

Fitch losing to GSP, this just might be my personal one, I gained a lot of respect for the guy for standing in for all five. Mir to Lesnar is another one that comes to mind, Mir looks like he pulled a BJ Penn and started taking his cardio seriously and isn't just leaning on talent anymore.
I dont know if it really helped his career but it sure made him choose the safe boring way to win fights. Nothing against GSP he is a great fighter and very intelligent but I miss the old GSP who would throw those crazy spinning kicks and he was alot more unpredictable. He also seemed like he used to have more fun before he got KTFO but I guess that would change alot of us.

It helped him because after that loss, he converted to a style that he could dominate with.

Virtually everyone wants to see GSP bust out more karate awesomeness, but if he dominates by using his wrestling, which he does, why would he stop?

Forrest in his loss to tito. he didnt win but he helped his case on his run to light heavyweight champion, showing he can go with the best, as well as helping ultimate fighters cases by showing these arent just reality show guys. Weird thing is this all came in a loss to ufc legend Tito Ortiz.

I'm struggling to see how these losses have helped these guys. I'm not sure there's much validity in suggesting that GSP losing to Serra helped him? In what way he as it helped him? He'd be on an even bigger streak if he'd won that one. Are people suggesting he wouldn't of walked through the fighter he has if he'd beaten Serra.

The GSP who fought Matt Serra the first time and the GSP who ran through Koscheck, Hughes, Serra, Fitch, Penn and Alves afterwards are two different fighters.

They don't call losses learning experiences for nothing.
