    1. Chris Weidman - former champ loser of 3 straight all by KO/TKO
    (Rockhold, Romero, Mousasi)

    2. Anthony Pettis - former champ lost 4/5 fights
    (RDA, Alvarez, Barboza, Holloway)

    I was never a believer in Pettis. Weidman is surprising

    Probably Weidman. With Pettis, we had already seen him wrestled to bits.

    Pettis easy. Weidman was at least competitive in his losses. Pettis was dominated and outstruck by RDA and Max. Arguably Edson too.

    Pettis imo. Was shocked to see him lose to Alvarez and get completely outstruck by Barboza.

    Weidman. But he was ran through a 185 buzzsaw the last 3 fights.

    Voted: Weidman losing 3 in a row. Reason being because I was never overly convinced about Pettis, yes he has very good kicks, his kicks are awesome!, but i'm not convinced by his hands, he doesn't have great punching, he never knocks anyone out with a punch or even rocks anyone with a punch. His TDD has always been very poor. I knew he would get found out. Weidman I didn't see losing for a while, I thought he would beat Rockhold and keep his undefeated streak going.. I was totally wrong :p

    I don't know but Weidman's is definitely more satisfying.

    I didn't pick Weidman to win any of those fights, thought Pettis would beat RDA, Alvarez, and Barboza. So I guess Pettis.

    Pettis looked like a killer in the Lauzon from Melendez fights, and none of them were old fading legends
    Weidman never looked like that
