    There are two things that are undisputably true about Chris Weidman:

    1) He was once a great fighter

    2) When he loses it is always in devastating fashion

    Has there ever been another fighter like him who had no in-between? It was either be great or get destroyed?

    Aldo lost an uneventful decision to Volk

    I don't think Weidman was ever great.
    But yeah, that's what happens when you get your chin cracked... and IMO Luke broke that chin when they allowed that fight to continue...

    Junior post Cain, same exact thing.

    Losing a decision means you didn't try.

    Chuck Liddell. Was a tank until he wasn’t. His last 5 loses or so were all brutal KOs

    He was never great, pre USADA gave him an edge like it did with other fighters

    Even in his prime he only lost by devastating stoppage. But he has one exception in his career against Keith Jardine.

    Winning the belt from one of the greatest fighters ever and successfully defending it 3 times makes you great in this sport dude, come on.

    Luke Rockhold, Chuck Liddell, Overeem come to mind.

    Randy Couture seemed to either get the shit beat out of him or submitted in ever loss. His lone decision loss to Nogueria.
