Nick Diaz - always thought he was a bum who was ruling a less talented SF division. Previously in the UFC he was losing left and right, then I saw him beat a past his prime Frank shamrock, but he lost to KJ noons, then barely beats KJ noons the second time around. So I'm thinking he's overrated.. then i saw him Vs Paul Daley... then him vs BJ Penn... and then Condit... he really improved on his stand up over the years.
Diego Sanchez - after seeing him lose to BJ Penn, he was outclassed a few more times and I believed won a fighe finally then robbed Kampmann. so I'm thinking yea this guy is overhyped then overrated.. i was wrong. his fight vs Jake Ellenberger showed me everything I needed to know about his courage and heart. maybe I'm still right about his skill set, but he almost always find a way to not give up when he's obviously down.
So u missed Diago beat the shit out of Guida, and Diaz beat the shit out of Lawler?
Mark Hunt-Didn't know he was a K-1 champ i thought he was just some big sloppy heavy weight they tossed at Fedor.
Kazushi Sakuraba- The first fight i ever saw of Saku's Was Silva vs Saku 3, on a Wanderlie Silva marathon. so i thought Sakuraba was just another Asian can. It wasn't till later on i found out he was the Gracie hunter and beat so many of the top fighters in his time.
