    Well he lost to mousasi the same year usada came in...thats all i know...he was 36 so that could explain something..

    It was a loss by decision so its not like he got koed or something and never returned..

    I simply offered a theory as more then a few guys faded out around the time usada came in

    You thought he was going places and we're surprised by his release. He was 2-3 and lost 3 in a row and that was a death sentence back then.

    Could have been Shane Carwin? That would be a lot more 'impressive' than KOing Schaub and I can't see Schaub bragging about himself being KO'd.

    I thought he was going places when he subbed Frank Lester at TUF Finale and then TKO'd Matt Riddle
    he was big for the weight class and seemed well rounded, but then he ran into Rick Story who went on a hot streak

    Yeah but i dont see him KOing Shane Carwin. Sadly we will never know.

    I think he might if there are multiple witnesses. You know hype the guy up so that it doesnt seem so bad. Kinda like when you loose to a guy and he becomes world champion it doesnt feel so bad anymore loosing to him

    He's got his own Tai Chi company, and sells hemp these days.



    Very talented fighter that had potential, but he put on one of the most limp-wristed, land-lubbin performances ever seen against Bang and deserved to get cut... Dude literally ran for 1.5 rounds thinking he was up... Shameful.

    I had high hopes for him too... Andre Winner as well, but he never improved either.

    Both good suggestions, yeah.

    One that springs to mind for me, apologies if already mentioned.....

    Luiz Cane.

    He started off looking like a beast, then lost to Lil Nog and went rapidly downhill, IIRC.

    Stanislav Nedkov, the guy that made him fo the staky leg is a good pick... Fought 3 times more after that, drew one then lost 2, and never fought again.

    Had potential.

    Ahhhhh, 'Stucky' Nedkov! He was a guilty pleasure of mine back then! His nickname just made me laugh. I remember him coming from Japan with a decent reputation, IIRC, and debuting against Cane.

    This is who I was thinking of when reading this thread and for the life of me I couldn’t remember his name. Thank you.

    Brian Bowles is one worth mentioning.

    There were a lot of good wrestlers who were 1 or 2 and done back in the days when there was really no money.
    - Kevin Jackson (had a few fights)
    - Kenny Monday
    - Townsend Saunders
    - Royce Alger

    And in the more recent era, obviously Rulon Gardner.

    The most random 1-fight appearance was Sean Bormet, who is now the head coach at Michigan. Fought once, got wrecked by Wand, and then never fought again.
