Default Whose record is most deceptive when you look only at the win-loss ratio?

The two obvious ones are Randy (19-11) and BJ (16-8-2).

Both of them are clearly much better than that record indicates, when factoring in quality of opposition, weight-jumping and ridiculous age (in Randy's case.)

But who else has a shitty-looking win-loss ratio while being a damned good fighter, or a sparkling record filled with bullshit decisions and fights against nobodies?

Who has a record of, say, 20-2, but IYO it should be 17-5 if the judges called the fights right?

Nah, 29-8 seems fair to me. He's fought at the highest levels forever and has picked up his fair share of losses fair and square. But 29-8 for Hendo isn't like BJ, where you look at it and see he wins less than 2/3rds of his fights and think WTF.

I can't even think of a fight where Guida was robbed.

Well, he has four losses, and one of those shouldn't count, so he should really only have three losses. When it comes to him being on the right side of a robbery, you can only make an argument for the Arona fight...

...so, what?

Disagree with Sanchez and Griffin. Thought those decisions were correct.

The Thomas fight doesn't even exist within my memory right now. Have to rewatch that one.

Sanchez/Guida was a clear win for Sanchez IIRC

I recall it being incredibly close, but not having an issue with the decision. I guess I'll rewatch that one again, as well. It was a great fight.
