    Do you know any great fighters back in the day that never made it in the UFC even though they were good enough?

    For me the two guys that stand out is:


    Justin Bruckmann:




    He has fought GSP and other great fighters who went on to do great things and he himself has solid wins against solid guys with winning record. He was a early 2000s fighter.



    Second guy is Curtis Brigham:





    Decent fighter, has been around the MMA since 1999 and despite having a winning record, he has never made it to the UFC...

    Enoch Wilson. The guys is an absolute beast at 145 and is very well rounded. Just never could seem to win consistently enough to get on the UFCs radar I guess.

    Best fighter in all of Alaska and was on the TUF season with Nelson coaching...
    Was tiny because it was 170ers... Since dropping to 155 he has been pretty unstoppable in AK... Butchered a guy from Bellator too.

    I thought the topic was about past-fighters. But if we can mention present fighters also,
    Liam Mcgeary, just look at the guy's crazy style, stuff'em on their feet and outclass'em on the ground.

    This thread is about past fighters since Ben is still in his prime and can still make it in the UFC.

    Since you didn't specify where, isn't everybody then considered local since everybody is local to someplace? Should just be best fighter that never fought in the UFC.

    Shinya Aoki, Bibiano Fernandes, Ben Askren, and some PRIDE guys that retired and such before the UFC buyout and contract grab.

    Yep good answer. One FC has a lot of the best guys to never fight in the UFC. Ryan Ford is another good answer. Ricardo Arona too.
