    if you count WEC as UFC, faber has about the same number of title wins as losses, he also defended the KOTC belt when there was no UFC/BW championship and there werent bigger promotions with that weight class. he has like 12-13 WEC/KOTC title wins

    the UFC merged after the peak of his career but he was still good enough to beat most guys anyways

    Karo Parisyan was scheduled to fight Matt Hughes for the WW title

    he got injured and replaced by Joe Riggs

    His career/life took took a nosedive due to pain killer addiction stemming from the injury

    True but the thing is, when Hughes didn't pan out, he fought Nick Thompson who later went on a winning streak. Then he lost to Diego but then he had three good fights and looked great against Burkman. His loss to Alves was the one that made his career go to shit.

    Thompson fight at the time was a gimme

    he was a large downward spiral and surviving on sheer talent and looked like a shell of his former self and was squeezing by guys like Pickett and Burkman

    your absolutely right about the Alves KO being the dagger though

    Confidence is a big factor in this sport, winning and losing streaks are common.

    Karo was legit probably one of the most naturally gifted fighters to ever grace the octagon.

    He basically didn’t do any strength and conditioning work besides his normal training, didn’t manage a regimented diet, and fought fairly close to his natural weight.

    Too bad he suffered from some kind of anxiety disorder and got addicted to painkillers.

    Please explain how Aldo following up a loss to Conor with an absolute domination of Frankie and then a competitive loss to Max can be described as a collapse. Name a FW other than Max who you would favor over Aldo right now.
