    From arguably the top prospect at heavyweight after the KO of Josh Barnett to a punch bag suffering brutal KO losses to the top of the division and then losing to Oleinik before being booted form the UFC. Amazing really

    He would have lost the Mitrione fight too if not for the horrific eyepoke.

    It was bizarre decline, he looked like he was drunk all the time with how unsteady his feet and knees were, he also developed absolutely atrocious cardio would be completely gassed after a few minutes. The Werdum fight stole his confidence I think wasn't the same after that.

    Well everyone that beat him, made a name off him. Otherwise we wouldn’t even know who those fighters are.

    He always looked like he was clumsily trying to imitate Dominick Cruz

    Travis Demised Browne.

    He was Demised before the bs fights he took because of his size. Period.

    He was spitting distance from it, the fight with Werdum was a title eliminator and I believe Browne was the favorite.

    He has a wonky frame and made for difficult matchups, but I'm not sure he had a lot of potential

    Can you imagine his demise even faster/further in the era of calf kicks?
