    Who are some fighters that performed really badly after a devastating loss?

    Some people I can think of are..

    Dan Hardy, loses title bid against GSP. Goes on a 4 fight losing streak shortly after.

    Leonard Garcia, controversial decision over Nam Phan, gets twistered in rematch w/ KZ & goes on a 4 fight losing streak.

    Nam Phan lost against Garcia followed by Brown, beats Garcia in rematch, gets dominated by Hettes, beats Cole Miller & gets dominated by Dennis Siver.

    Melvin Guillard. Gets embarassed by Joe Lauzon, subbed by the same move against Jim Miller, beats Camoes via lackluster decision then gets KO'd by Cerrone & beaten by Varner.

    Just for a bonus, what about fighters who lost but came back better than before?

    Benson Henderson, loses last WEC event title fight to Pettis. Transitions to the UFC & is riding a 6 fight winning streak including being the UFC LW champion.

    Cain Velasquez. Loses title in first defense against JDS. Destroys Bigfoot w/out problem & dominates JDS en route to retaining his title back.

    GSP. Loses to Serra & Hughes & ends up becoming the dominant champ he is today.

    Anderson Silva loses via DQ against Okami & goes on to win the UFC MW title along w/ dominating the division for the past 7 years.

    Rory MacDonald. Loses to Carlos Condit & starts decimating everybody in his path.

    What say you Sherdog?

    Machida looked shell shocked against rampage, which cost him the decision.

    Hominick got wrecked by Aldo. Shogun seems to have lost something after JBJ, even though he showed a ton of heart against Hendo, he took a bad beating in that fight.

    I was going to agree with this wholeheartedly, then I looked up Forrest's record and he's 3-1 since the Anderson fight. That is hard to believe, since he's come off as such a confused dipshit ever since that humiliation.

    It's not just about the record, it's how his fights went. Definitely not the same fighter after it.

    Hardy, Garcia, and Phan are just not really that good. I don't think they were affected by their previous loss. They lose because they're not top fighters.

    Shocked no one has said this, but Cro Cop after Gonzaga took his soul comes to mind first for me. Dude was never the same after.
