Well Hunt was on quite a streak before a certain Werdum got the best of em. I admit it bummed me out but no, I hate using that saying.

Hunt's had two brutal KO losses and a draw in his last 4 fights. Enough with the Hunt. He's never even cracked the top 4 or 5 in his life.

No one has a better Cinderella story than Lawler. He was irrellevant, and a little over a year later, he was champion.

Hunt could have, but unfortunately he just didn't win his big fights. He gets an honorable mention for being tied for longest losing streak, then coming back to be in title contention.

Chael Sonnen should probably get a mention too. Before he fought Anderson, he was just some mediocre WEC acquisition. He beat 2 highly rated contenders to earn his shot, and almost beat the P4P #1 fighter in the world. He became the best selling UFC fighter after that. His fall from grace is almost as noteworthy because of how high he climbed.

Shogun.

Forgotten after losing to Forrest and barely beating Coleman, then KOed Chuck, lost to Machida via bad decision and then KOed Machida in the rematch to win the title.
