Thread: What mediocre fighter put together the best string of wins?

Hybrid View

  1. Default What mediocre fighter put together the best string of wins?

    I was thinking about Matt Brown and his current run and I thought this would be a fun discussion. Some that come to mind...

    Matt Brown (6-0 - 5 finishes - 2 fight night bonuses)
    Mark Hunt (4-0 - 3 finishes - 3 fight night bonuses)
    Chris Lytle (5-1 - 3 finishes - 5 fight night bonuses)

    G spot 7 wins, 5 finished, 2 fights of the night.

    On another note, I still can't believe people thought Lytle was HOF worthy.

    one that pops into mind is Forrest Griffin, he went 7-2 in his first 9 UFC fights winning the LHW title

    That's what makes his streak so impressive. Forrest Griffin was the poster boy for overachieving mediocre fighters.

    My number 1 choice would be George Sotiropoulos. He went on an 8 fight win streak (7 in the ufc), beating some pretty good up and comers during that time. I have never really thought George was anything special, maybe others disagree.

    Roger Huerta is another one, he had a 6 fight win streak and was almost in line for a title shot, before florian derailed him.

    Also, how about Karo Parisyan? It can be argued that he wasn't Mediocre before his injury, but he had a big streak in the ufc and then didn't really go anywhere.. except down in the rankings.

    I know many people will disagree (about him being mediocre), but i think that Melvin Guillard should be considered. He made a few good streaks in the ufc, but I don't see him as much more than a gatekeeper.

    I don't think Forrest is mediocre at all, he was just a solid fighter that achieved more than most expected. If this was just about people who overachieved relative to their skill set, then for sure he should be on there. I was thoroughly surprised when he beat shogun and rampage.

    Gatekeepers are below elite status and above mediocrity.
