    After watching Ellenberger crumble in his second high profile fight in a row, I have noticed there are always a few fighters within each division that are always on the cusp on that next big step, but seem to always falter.

    Heavyweight: Travis Browne
    LHW: Phil Davis (maybe?)
    MW: Bisping
    WW: Ellenberger
    LW: Cerrone (maybe?)
    FW: Guida
    BW: Faber (but he's already made the big step into title fights)
    WBW: Tate (same as Faber)
    FLW: ?

    Please help me fill the blanks or tell me which ones are wrong.

    How did Guida choke at FW? He's 2-1 and went three rounds with Mendes.

    Disagree with your list.

    Overeem, yes. Bigfoot, no.

    Phil - yes....but it's hard to say that about someone with only 2 career losses. I'd go with Bader instead as a more deserving choice.

    Bisping, yes. Munoz, no. He's not good enough to beat elites - not a choker. (I'm a fan, though) Possibly could replace his name with Thunder Okami and start a new meme, "Chokami"

    Ellenburger - yes. Sadly. I'd also go with Maia.

    Nate - Disagree. I'd say The Punk, although each time Jim Miller is knocking on the door, he eats a loss, so.....

    Diamond - Disagree. Jeremy Stephens - but he is like a junior Munoz. Not sure if he chokes or is just not at the elite level to get past those final top-tier fighters into first place or a belt.

    Disagree - Not TJ or Scotty. Michael McDonald is the guy in this weight class that has come up short under the big lights when he has had the chance. I think he is one of the most skilled fighters in the world, personally, but for some reason he is stuck in the middle of that pack.

    Scotty - Still disagree. I'd go with Uncle Creepy in this division, definitely.
