    Platinum Mike Perry. I can’t stand the dude but he’s got talent and a manic following.

    Papy Chulo Abedi was a force to be reckoned with.

    Until he wasn’t.

    Those weigh-in abs always sway Shertards.

    Conor actually had a pretty good size following before his UFC debut. I remember some of his fans already got Marcus Brimage triggered on the interwebz before they stepped in the cage.

    Also Ben Nguyen went viral when he knocked out that tattoo guy before his UFC debut.
