    For me two of most popular examples are GSP in his loss to Hughes and Rrry in his loss to Condit(got a feeling this ones going to be a popular vote)

    Lesnar did pretty well in the first Mir fight that he lost by sub. I was impressed.

    After Weidman's fights with Sakara/Bongfeldt I knew he'd be a force.

    When Gus lost to Davis, I got the sense that he still was the better fighter who just made a dumb mistake.

    And Inb4 jones/hamill

    Well I knew Brock was a good athlete/wrestler and all, but I was pretty much expecting Mir to tool him most of the fight.

    Randy Couture vs Tim Sylvia.
    I thought that was the biggest mismatch in UFC history until the Old Man showed the world being old is just a #

    And I'm not sure anyone has profited more from a loss than Sonnen did in the first Silva fight.

    Mirko Cro Cop vs Andy Hug - Even tho i thought Cro Cop won it i was rooting for Hug in that fight as he was my idol at the time, and after watching Mirko go toe to toe with him i was sold on him especially when he started trading axe kicks with Hug which was just epic.

    Fedor vs Heath - Became a huge Fedor believer after that and was favouring him against Nog,

    Rampage vs Sakuraba - Thought Quinton could become the next Randleman and i was sort of right.

    Even though I'm not a fan, Chael after the first Silva fight.

    Forrest after the first Tito fight too.

    Dan Hardy when he fought GSP. I didn't think he was especially good before that, but then I realized the UFC wouldn't give just anyone a title shot.
