Does any fighter have more quality wins with. . .

shittier losses than Rashad Evans?

Rashad was once a world beater, won TUF at HW, starched Liddell and eventually went on to win the LHW title.

He has marquee wins over:

1. Bisping
2. Liddell
3. Rampage
4. Phil Davis
5. Dan Henderson
6. Sonnen
7. Forrest
8. Tito
etc. . .

He has almost as many wins over former champs than Jones. His only losses to top ranked fighters were:

1. Machida
2. Jones
3. Glover

The rest of his losses seemed more mental and due to lack of aggression. I can't think of another former champ with that many marquee wins without having more losses to higher ranked opponents.

Why is that?

Rashad relied on speed and timing quite a bit, he fell in love with striking and got so far away from his grappling that he was no longer at the top of the heap in that aspect.
Plus he probably should've been fighting at MW a lot longer than he was.

I do think he'd have continued having a more accomplished career had the Jones fight/Jackson split never happened.
Blackzillians defintely hindered his career more than helped.
