I like Kennedy a lot, and he has been a little bit overlooked, but I think he has been generally been fairly ranked particularly after his dominant win over Bisping. MW is more stacked now than earlier time I can recall.

love watch Dustin "Diamond" Poirier. He is so exciting and talented, but I'm not sure that he has been underrated or under appreciated. There was a cool documentary on cable TV about fighters making it from the minor leagues to the big time of the UFC and Poirier was the featured fighter.

Matt Brown was under appreciated, but it looks like that is now in the past given his current contender status. Matt Brown if very exciting if you like guys who come forward and look to finish at all times. Matt Brown gives the fan's a strong reason to tune in or buy a ticket to see him live.

What? All except Josh Thompson is overrated, or gets the praise they deserve.

Insert any other fighter to recently lose a title or number one contender match. Making it to a big fight and then losing means you suck.
100 times better then the TS list.

He just listed fighters that lost a big fight, how does that make them underrated?
I think he meant overrated and is implying that sherdog throws every fighter under the bus who loses. But if he really means underrated, that list is just as bad.

Weidman has been obnoxiously underrated until the recent Machida fight, and even now there is a vocal segment of stubborn boneheads who are still not sold on him.

I meant underrated in that once you lose a big fight, even if you were the number one contender or champion 1 day ago all of a sudden you are considered to suck and therefore become underrated.
