How many fighters have lost their first shot at a ufc title and then won one down the road? Can't be many...

I'd say most contenders who have fought for and lost their chance at a belt are probably out statistically.

Gus, Robbie, Dodson, etc...

I think he won the hendricks fight, he did well against gsp, avenged his first ufc loss in kampman, and then blows his knee out with woodley. So his last three losses arent that bad so I believe he still has a chance to become champion but then then I 5hink to myself, "am I being unrealistic?"

Same with jds.

Gus has worked on his wrestling and has improved a lot as shown in the Jones fight. Imo in a rematch Gus would beat Davis up like Rashad and Johnson did.
Haha, only your favorite fighter improves;
