I'd say those two Lion's Den fighters were the best pound for pound out of all fighters that didn't win a UFC tournament during UFC 1-11. But Gary Goodridge is also one of the best. He KOed Oleg Taktarov and Don Frye later in his career, as well Valentijn Overeem and Andre Roberts
Goodridge Ko'ed Tactarov and Frye later in his career which was obviously laterin their career as well.
Fry was never the same fighter when he went from 205lbs to 225lbs, Goodridge never would've defeated Frye or Tactarov if all 3 were in their primes.
Bohlander one of the best Lions Den fighters, hardly.... He sucked pretty badly atually. Mezger, yes.
Pat Smith, Tank, Remco and Ken Shamrock would've absolutely owned Bohlander and they would've owned Mezger at that time as well though he did become a great fighter later on down the road but seriously man, Jerry Bohlander would've been KO'ed by Pat Smith and Tank, Ken would've knee bar'ed him and Remco would've put on a BJJ clinic as he was one of the only fighters in UFC whi knew BJJ back in 1994-1995.
