    Which fighters had the biggest downfall in MMA?

    I know theres fighters like Joe Son and War Machine and Lee Murray who have been jailed for a very long time and are in worse positions than Conor, but they never have risen to the top like Conor and many others did

    My pick for biggest downfall in MMA history would be Conor Mcgregor
    Reasons
    -Made history by beating two champions in impressive fashion (Aldo and Alvarez) and became first double champ. People absolutely loved and respected him, with many saying he has achieved GOAT status. He then goes on to lose two next fights (floyd one wasnt too bad). But he got absolutely humiliated and destroyed by Khabib (more than 2.5 million PPV buys)
    -2 sexual assault allegations
    -assaulting elderly men
    -bus attack incident/ phone smashing incident
    -seen as a laughing stock these days
    -Once idolized In Ireland, now he is seen as a public embarrassment

    Honorable mentions
    -Jose Aldo (13 seconds)
    -BJ Penn (7 straight losses)
    -Anderson Silva
    -Fedor did pretty bad later on
    -Ronda Rousey beat into retirement

    Who else

    The only way is down when you scale heights and do things other MMA fighters haven't done before,making massive money breaking box office records to become the number 1 draw in combat sports.
    I hope Mcgregor can come back close to the level he was before the Mayweather fight but I just don't see it happening an suspect he's lost the hunger with all the money he's made and distractions he never had to deal with before,with a young family and business interests,not to mention his legal issues.

    Rousey had the biggest fall imo. Made out to be invincible, idiot shills like Joe Rogan saying she could beat male ufc fighters, she stated she could beat Floyd in a fight LOL, had a nasty bully personality .............THEN

    She gets completely brutally DESTROYED/outclassed and made to look like a novice, refused to talk to media, Hid behind a purple pillow. How pathetic was that.

    She certainly hit rock bottom and it was so enjoyable for mma fans to witness her demise. hehehehehehehe

    The Holm KO was the most satisfying KO I have ever seen in MMA.

    RR is a massive scumbag, and Holm is a gem. She was on fine form that night.

    Before Mayweather he had already tapped to journeyman Nate Diaz.

    Rousey would be probably the biggest of recent years, going from a so called unbeatable champ who could beat up top male fighters,to being badly exposed in her last 2 fights,with her abysmal striking showing how 1 dimensional and limited she was.

    I'd say Ronda Rousey.... followed by the way she went into MMA hiding afterwards.
