OK we've done who we think is the most overrated so now lets do who we think is the most underrated fighter in the UFC.

Tim Sylvia- Its amazing how underated he is on here. Not just underrated but just hated to the point where you think he raped somebody's mother or something. He doesn't get credit for anything. He also gets a bad rap here for being the most boring fighter in the UFC which is just rediculous considering that almost all of his fights in his career end by knockout (he has only gone to decision like three times in his entire creer, only twice in the UFC). In addition almost all of those knockouts are in the first round and are usually highlight real material.


Evan Tanner- He just seems to get ignored. He is a great fighter that hardly ever gets mentioned.


Danny Abbadi- Just kidding. :laugh:


Anyone else?

A lot of us still respect Evan Tanner. It just that he disappeared from the face of the planet.

Come on, Sylvia could have 100 knockout wins and would still be the most boring fighter, because even his knockouts are boring as shit.
and if you can knock someone out and have it be boring, thats saying a lot.

I still think Ken Florian is underestimated by some, Evan Tanner does not get the recognition he deserves.

Brandon Vera. He says he wants to hold the heavyweight and light heavyweight at the same time. We'll see what happens. He has the best chance against Liddel in my opinion. Not so sure about HW though. We'll see if he can go through Mir first.

almost everyone mentioned; silvia, tanner, ken flow have either held the title or at least been given a shot at the title so i wouldnt really say they are underrated. they might not be impressive but i dont know how you can be underrated when you have been a champ. its the fighters that get pushed to the side or never given a fair shot that are underrated. karo would be the most underrated for me. he has a few loses but he is very young and can bang with anyone around. look for him to be at the top of the division if not the champ in the next 2-3 years!!!!

David Terrell was the first that came to mind.

Terrell could be a force in the MW division. Sure, he got pounded by Tanner, but once you get pinned up by the cage(By a wrestler), your bound to get pounded. Terrell still threw a really nice high kick in the Tanner fight.

I gotta say, old "poopy pants" sylvia gets underrated bad. Of course, love handles, and shorts full of crud can have that effect.....

the dean of mean keith jardine.
He has an mma record of 11-3. he was able to beat up bonar pretty bad in a match he should have won. he has great stand up and I think he could be a big force in the ufc. He hardly gets any fights and nobody ever talks about him :dunno:. he seems prety under underrated to me.

Tim Sylvia - He's a very underrated champion, and he gets no credit on these forums. He's improved by leaps and bounds since his debut, he's cleaned up his boxing and he's good at keeping the fight on the feet because of his size and reach advantage. Like people have said, his fights are exciting because he (usually) wins decisively. I guess people like Atom Danger wouldn't realize that because the only person he's knocked out was probably his little sister.

So true. So true. Sylvia does what works for him getting him knockout wins. I don't think he's underrated at all. Just hated because he comes off as an ass.

Sylvia can't be like Mirko, Fedor, or Nog. He's a big dumb oaf, and that works for him. He lumbers around, and KO's people. It works for Big Tim. He can't do a bunch of flashy subs, throw people around like ragdolls, or technical strike, because that's not him.....that's not Big Tim.

Plus, Sylvia vs Cabbage ruled.

Keith Jardine was in somebody's corner at PRIDE Real Deal. I forget who though.
