    - Ronda Rousey
    - Nick Diaz
    - Conor McGregor
    - Demetrious Johnson
    - Chris Weidman
    - Jon Jones *** PED
    - TJ Dillashaw *** PED



    Overrated fighters have been propped up by substandard competition and/or flashy victories that are later proven to have a high component of luck or have been the beneficiary of defeating aged opponents.

    Who else am I missing?

    In what world is Mighty Mouse overrated?

    Even if you hated him, you could watch his fight against Cruz and realize he's on another level. He was beating Dom at his own game and out struck him despite being severely undersized, this was peak Cruz btw, against a developing Demetrius Johnson.

    yeah only because she was hyped to un godly levels by the UFC. I think if her mental was right, she would still be elite. Maybe not Nunes or Valentina level, but better than pretty much everyone else

    Conor is the most overrated by far, casuals still believe he's gonna take the WW strap or the LW strap again.

    He didn't get destroyed at all, maybe controlled on the ground at key points smh.

    I don't know how I forgot to add Masvidal. Good pick!

    I left Nate off because at least he exposed McGregor
