    Im talking fighters who start very slow but once they warmed up in the later runda, becomes very dangerous and is more than capable to F you up.

    Im on the fence between Cerrone and Edgar.

    Cerrone

    Most of the time it looks like he's got to get slapped around for a round before he wakes up and gets down to business.

    Damn exciting fighter to watch, regardless.

    Actaually Cat is on this list too. Always losing the first round but comes back to destroy you.

    Funny, I was going to say Cat Zingano.

    Nick Diaz always seemed like he needs to find a groove for the first few minutes.

    Cat Zingano, the next victim of Rousey. Was in big trouble in the 1st round against Tate and Nunes.

    EDIT: I'm typing slow once again...

    Diaz for sure.

    Gomi/Diaz was epic.

    Came in here to say this. Its funny because Rousey is one of the best 1st round fighters in the sport right now, bad match up imo but Cat in undefeated and they didn't have a lot of options.

    Unfortunately it's gotta be the Cowboy. My theory is that he has really good trainers who give him inspiring pep talks after the 1st round, leading to his in-fight evolution.

    Ian McCall - takes him a round or two to become truly effective

    Cerrone and Cat and Machida...then again Cheetah kinda sleeps on himself during the entire fight

    it normally works to Cerrone's advantage but unfortunately for Cat Ronda kills her opponents in the first round......i like Cat but she is going to get wreck'd in that first round and it'll be over quick

    Also Yoel Romero. Lost first 2 rounds to Brunson and wasn't so dominant with Kennedy.

    Werdum hasn't looked fantastic in his first rounds lately.
