akiyama could be on that list, 1-2 and probably 1-3 too, and i though belcher beat him at 100 so maybe realistically 0-4 he was hyped too, and how can we leave put mr overrated TYSON GRIFFIN lost 3in a row including a KO at the hands of gomi
Those are actually pretty good examples. Probably more hype for them. Tyson though was highly touted and just ran into bad situations. I always thought he had tons of talent and would be a contender. He probably should try 145lb if he can cut down.
People expected a lot from Karo Parisian too. Sadly he never could seem to get it together.
Yah Karo should be added on the list. WEC WW Champ and went from UFC contender (don't think he ever got his shot though), to gate keeper, to winning a much needed bout only to be tested positive for banned painkillers, hired back, only to get released again.
Gonzaga. the guy got cut and retired. he also had no chim
Looks like he is pondering retirement from MMA competition. Probably focusing on BJJ competition.

Best thing is after watching the Kos/GSP fight, I would have loved to see GSP try to stand with Daley like he did with Kos, we could of really seen how far Freddie Roach has brought is boxing skills along then, but we all know that would never of happened should that fight of taken place, GSP would never of stood with Daley if he did had would more than likely of lost his title via KO.
Not taking anything away from GSP by that, taking Daley down like Kos did and just using LnP for 5 rounds would of been his smartest move and he has ever right to defend his title however he feels fit no matter how boring he is.
But still I see Daley achieving great things in the sport still over at SF.
Daley is an interesting choice. Had he had a shot at the title or taken out a few more top level guys I think he certainly would have fit the profile. He beat Kampmann which was a very solid test, lost to Kos, but right now he's doing well in SF.
I think they should do a documentary on this. Take your pick on any of the fighters or group of em for that matter. Would make for a very fascinating story.
