Don't Believe The Hype: What Fighter Is Most Overrated?

New, 38 comments

When you survey the MMA landscape you're likely to see a fighter or two that you would label as being overrated. Maybe their arrival was accompanied with a lot of excessive hype. Perhaps they're a fighter that has had multiple opportunities on the big stage and left you unimpressed. Maybe you even see them as having glaring holes in their game that could be a huge liability. Keep in mind that labeling a fighter as overrated is not the same thing as labeling someone a bad fighter. It could simply mean that, while you acknowledge that the fighter is skilled, you don't think that the hype is proportional to what they've shown thus far. Which fighter(s) would you label as overrated and why? I've got a couple of contenders in mind but I'd be interested to see what you all think.
