    two that go under the radar now , roger huerta and gina carano , think huerta was the first to be on men's health and gina was a mix of ronda an vanzant hype wise , until a prime juiced out of her brain cyborg sent her to hollywood . Both had crazy hype pretty much based solely on looks , and huerta had a viral street fight video

    Your wrong and there is such you clearly fail to grasp as fighters like Bisping and both Diaz brothers are far better then average and have longevity at or near the top of multiple divisions.
    Bisping for starters got the extra $ and exposure he did by being the face of 1 of the UFCs biggest markets in the UK.
    Diaz brothers are respected and recognised by most MMA fans and almost all the fighters,who clearly know more about the sport then you ever will.
    Real fight fans love the Diaz brothers because of how they fight and there mentality as fighters in every sense of the word.
    Also gaining casual and mainstream fans to go with the more knowledgeable fans who have followed and respected them since the start because of how genuine and original they are ,with fighters still trying to follow and imitate them.
    Many of there losses were against known PED users and while some laughed at them when they said repeatedly "everyone was on steroids" they were pretty much proven right when fighters performances dropped dramatically once USADA started testing and catching many of the biggest names in the sport.
    Also they were among the 1st to call out UFC underpaying them and other fighters,be prepared to sit out until they got paid what they were worth as being among mmas biggest stars.

    No you are wrong.

    For example Nick Diaz had a long long career at 170 lbs. Name his best wins at 170 lbs ? You name them. Nick Diaz was a decent fighter but never an elite fighter. Name his best wins at 170 lbs in his whole career. NAME THEM.

    You clearly didn't read what I said or what the thread is about as I have never said they were elite and that they were a level below the very best but are clearly better then average with almost all of Nicks losses against former world champs

    Probably the best picks on this thread. I forgot all about Huerta. He seemed like he had some potential until Kenny Florian exposed him.

    Anyone who thinks Nick Diaz was just an average fighter is just a dyed-in-the-wool hater or a casual.

    It must make you furious that a high school wrestler with a year of jiu-jitsu training would be able to strangle all of your boxing "legends".

    Diva Brothers just whine and whine and whine and whine about fights they lost.

    Khabib is amazing but has a smaller fan base than McGregor who he dominated.

    You do realise that if Tommy Hearns in his prime landed on any Jiu-Jitsu fighter that he would have knocked them out easily, that`s a legend my friend.
