    If not for the Big Foot lose, I would have to say Travis Browne.
    Phil Baroni

    Forrest Griffin

    I'm sure more then a couple will disagree but I'm gonna throw Nick Diaz name in the mix. Sure he has good boxing and jiu jitsu.. but against guys that can wrestle or expose his limitations he struggled.

    I figure if Forrest name can be thrown out there Nick is no different and I'd say Forrest had tougher opponents that he won against.

    he is not mediocre. there are plenty of very good fighters that have a glaring weakness.

    Yes and that's why they can't string together a long run of wins without a run of favorable opponents.

    I like Pat Barry, but if you are looking for a string of wins, you probably don't want to look at his career.


    Wilson Gouveia is another person that put together a nice streak, entering the ufc, then fell flat.. Or if you actually count the dq win against Jon Jones, Matt Hamill had a pretty solid streak. Hamill beat an no name, Munoz, Jones (i guess lol), Jardine, and Tito. Maybe we could throw Carwin or Gonzaga on the list as well

    diaz knocked out paul daley when he was regarded as the best striker in the world at the time and submitted a bjj black belt in cyborg right before that. he also out boxed bj penn.

    someone who did that well at beating people at their own game is not mediocre. the only people he has lost to in the past 5 or 6 years are gsp and condit. there is no same in losing to either of those guys. gsp is the GOAT by far in that division and condit is a beast as well plus that was aclose fight.

    Not too mention the last strong wrestler he faced prior to GSP he beat.
