Worst career collapse after title shot?

After seeing Gabriel Gonzaga at the very bottom of UFC Rio, it got me thinking about who has had the worst collapse after losing their title shot. Going into that fight w/ Couture, everyone at the bar besides a few Couture diehards "knew" that Gonzaga was the next HW champ.. And now he is the opening fight for the prelims..
Anyone else come to mind?

Thales Leites. I don't have a clue what he is doing now

Leites has faded away to irrelevance
Hardy is lucky he is even still in the UFC after going 0-4

This hurts but.....Arvoloski is nowhere close to what he once was. Same goes for Timmeh.

Andrei actually went on a pretty decent run outside the UFC up until he fought Fedor, then his career started going down quickly.
