    1) Erick Silva - looked like a killer but deflated after usada.

    2) Mike Perry - unbelievable charisma but couldnt win any fights against mid range competition.

    3) Ngannou - was supposed to be the future of the HW division but doesnt have any wrestling or cardio.

    4) Scott Coker - built up by the mma media as the second coming but ends up turning bellator into an old mans underwear.

    Is losing a decision to the greatest UFC Heavyweight champ ever really a derailment?

    Erick Silva is still early on in his career. Give him a chance. Christ.

    Bektic was suppose to be the next big thing at 145.

    He go one to lose to Elkins after ending up a -650 favorite.

    So far, Lando.

    He has the skill, but his gas tank is a huge liability.

    Erik Silva can still be relevant, see RDA, Matt Brown, and Robbie who as seasoned journeymen turned a corner to either win a title or work into contention....

    no I’m not trolling, the likelihood is minimal but Erik still has a good enough chin and willpower to crack the top 10 if he can get his fight IQ together

    How can a hype train disappoint ?

    By definition they are inevitably going to crash and burn. It’s always a lovely site.

    Ngannou lost once, against one of the best HW's of all time. Chill.

    Uriah Hall was ridiculously overhyped... purely because of that one dramatic KO over a semi-pro daytime-TV show opponent...

    The UFC milked that hype train dry... and the resulting expectations set upon the poor dude? Well he never stood a chance.
