As the saying goes, you are only as good as your last fight. Â By internet and blog logic, you’re only as boring as your last decision. Â People love decisive victories and although a few of the fighters below have won Fight of the Night honors with their decision, like it or not, boo birds will sing you the song of their people. Â With that in mind, I thought we’d take a look at the participants of the upcoming UFC on FX 8 main card and see if we can separate those who finish their fights from those who hang on and grind. From the top down it breaks up like this:
Vitor Belfort – The “Phenom” has not gone to decision since Sept. 22nd, 2007; 8 fights and 6 wins ago.
Luke Rockhold – The former Strikeforce champion has only been to a decision twice in his 11 fight career.
Chris Camozzi – Camozzi is on a two-fight decision run. He has not finished a fight since a June 2012 doctor stoppage over Nick Catone.
