    I liked Kenny Florian.

    Not saying he was more decorated than Hendo or more deserving, but for me I wanted to see him win the title.

    Unfortunately he just couldn't get the job done.

    Shields was a WW and he absolutely dominated Hendo for 4 straight rounds. Yes, getting dominated by someone from a lower weight class is a bad loss. And Misaki was good, but he wasn't close to being an elite fighter. In fact, the only elite fighter he ever beat was Hendo. Considering the fact that Misaki never beat another top-level guy, I'd say that's a bad loss (relatively speaking).

    Dan the hendo henderson is a very good answer
    Throwing Overeem in this mix, probably would be knocked out by me throwing him though :D

    Actually, he had 4 title defenses. And during that reign, he also beat guys like Rampage, Sakuraba, and Yoshida in non-title fights.

    Of course Hendo was good everywhere he went; he was a great fighter. All the great fighters would have been good in any promotion. And you're right, he was one of the best everywhere he went. But like I said, Hendo was never actually considered the best fighter in any division at any given time. Wand was LHW king for an extended period of time, during the golden era of LHW.

    And it's a little disingenuous to mention Hendo "winning" the Rings tournament. His fight with Nog was without a doubt the biggest robbery I've seen in MMA. There's really no debate on that fight.

    Joe B, Faber, Mendes, Yves, Thompson, Melendez, Cerrone, Nick, Shields, Hendo, Wand, Romero, Gegard, Cro Cop, Overeem.. all come to mind. Although Melendez, Shields and Cro Cop did not have the best UFC runs.

    Tough to argue against Hendo.

    Hammer House went 2/3 for titles, but this guy coulda easily made it 3/3...

    Neither did Bisping when he rematched Rockhold. Doesn't matter if you "deserved" it or not, if you beat the champ you're the champ.

    except that isnt the same thing
    Bisping was a late replacement and was not scheduled to originally fight Rockhold, from meory he stepped in with 2 weeks notice
    Also i dont think Bisping was that low ranked
    Regardless they scheduled a title fight from the get with a guy not even ranked in the top 10. Not taking anything away from Henderson, he's a great fighter ofc
