    Cro Cop stepped in on a couple of days notice to fight top 10 Fujita. Cro Cop fought 3 top 10 guys in his first 5 fights.

    Lesnar, like him or not, was thrown to the wolves right away.

    Some Kenneth Williams guy fought Rampage and Chuck in his first two fights(never fought again) and lost both via rear naked choke. That just goes to show you that even Rampage and Chuck were afraid to stand with this killa!

    Yuji Nagata fought Cro Cop and Fedor in his first two(and only) fights.

    Big Foot Silva was welcomed to the UFC by Cain Velasquez - that was bad.

    I found the winner, his name is Yuji Nagata

    [​IMG]

    Yuji Nagata has only fought twice: A prime Cro Cop in his debut and then a prime Fedor.

    EDIT: Someone found him before me! Well played sir.

    GSP vs Hieron, we did not know GSP was so good yet but he did beat Karo in his UFC fight.

    Cro Cop's fight first in MMA was against Fujita,

    For a K-1 fighter making his first foray into a sport where your striking can be nullified that was a pretty hard debut

    Are we talking debuts into certain organizations or their first fight in MMA?

    Mac Danzig took on Kurt Pellegrino in his first fight and Jordan Mein fought Rory Macdonald.

    Nog, Aleks E. and Barnett in his first 4 fights. What a warrior!


    Yoon Dong-Sik fought Saku, Rampage and Bustamante in his first 4 fights.
