10 Ufc Fighters Who Failed To Live Up To Expectations

Once in a blue moon a fighter arises from nowhere who really catches the eye of the Mma community. The cliché of the hype train is a term that best describes this. On occasion, they are very accurate and warranted – see Jon Jones, Lyoto Machida etc.

Jones won the light heavyweight belt with an impressive victory against Shogun Rua, going on to defend his belt 5 times and clinching a Nike sponsorship deal in the process. Hype well and truly granted.

However, this article will look at those occasions when a fighter has a heap of potential and hype but has not been able to deliver. »
