6) Jarred Brooks

Thanks for ranking Jarred Brooks #6.

I think he actually beat Deveison Figuereido 29-28 if not 30-27 a few years ago. Spent almost the entire fight on top. Judges saved Figuereido with a home cooked decision.

That other loss Brooks had in the UFC. He was dominating the fight everywhere. He power slammed his opponent and accidentally hit his head on the canvas while slamming.

If not for both incidents he could be 18-0 now.

What's really weird is the fact that Jarred Brooks won his fight after both of those losses so technically he was on a win, yet he got released from the promotion. Then again that was during that rumor that the UFC was going to cut the flyweight division. I still wonder where that rumor came from and if it was planned, what sequence of events stopped it?

Which was in and of itself a bust. On the bright side with that trade is that Demetrious Johnson seems to be happy in One Championship and he won their flyweight grand prix. Now he's going to be fighting for their flyweight championship.
