Fastest falls from grace in MMA?

Reading the Sokojou tread yesterday got me thinking about how quickly a fighters luck can change, who do you think had the hardest fall from grace?

To start things off -

Tales Leites - Got some decent wins, got a title shot against silva, loses (embarrassingly), drops straight to undercard, loses, gets cut.

Alistair Overeem - The hype behind him coming into the UFC was wild, fought Lesnar and proved he was pretty legit to the doubters, gets busted for steriods, gets KTFO against Bigfoot. The uberreem hype train seems to be pretty dead.

Chuck Liddell - I didn't really want to put in any of the legends that declined at the end of there careers, but Chuck's is particuarly shocking. Went from top 5 P4P to losing 5/6

One for fun -
Bob sapp - In hindsight this seems pretty stupid, but he was intimidating as fuck back before fighters realized he couldn't hack the whole punch to the face thing.

Man, Bob Sapp was actually good in both MMA and Kickboxing... He was far from the best, but I don't know why he's been reduced to that.

Chris Weidman

Really, Houston Alexander, though he didn't fall as far as others.

Both Leites and Lutter fought for the UFC MW title and then were cut not too long after that. They were then finished in their next fight in smaller promotion agaisnt mid-tier fighters.

Houston Alexander, Shinya Aoki and the most disappointing for me, Andrei Arlovski. How is that guy not more successful?!?!
