    As the title says, who do you think is the best fighter to have fought in the UFC but never headlined a UFC pay-per-view?

    A UFC PPV? Joe Lauzon. But he headlined a Fight Night against Kenny Florian.

    Struve - Gustof - Ellenberger, Hendricks - Weidman - All the up and comers as well, but I can't think of any big names not yet put on a PPV headliner...

    What about the Flyweight champ MM?

    About to be his 3rd UFC title fight w/o headlining a PPV.

    Lytle was the first name that sprung to my mind, I only remember him headlining his final card...which was free.

    Ok, Hendricks wins.

    10 fights in the UFC. 9 - 1 record in the UFC, 14 - 1 record overall.

    Never even headlined a free event.

    This topic is too easy. It should be the best UFC fighter to never fight on a PPV main card

    I have to say Weidman, Hendricks, and Rory are the best we can find that haven't headlined a PPV event. All 3 of them could very well be the next GOAT candidates. Other fighters have just been too inconsistent, and a guy like MM is fighting in too weak of a division.
