    I set the poll so you can change who you picked, so if you think of somebody else that I haven't included let me know.

    I can make an excuse for ANY Randy Couture loss on his record. I had to vote "other" accordingly.

    You said fanbase, and not Fighter themselves making the excuses, right?

    I am utterly shocked that my Couture nuthugging didn't even get honorable mention!

    Tito himself made the most excuses.

    As far as fans, Shoguns are prob the worst (even tho i'm one of them) Conor's fans talked a bunch of BS when he lost too... 3rd would be BJ Penn

    For me,its Anderson Silva. Oh he was clowning,and idiotic,and that he fought differently he would have won,but at the same time hes old and defensless geriatric and if it was prime anderson etc etc etc. and no credit is ever given to those who beat him,no matter how hard they had to work,or stylistically matched up well.

    Anderson Silva fans who were brainwashed by the ZUFFA marketing machine into thinking he was the greatest fighter to ever live and that he wasn't a steroid guzzling cheater.

    GSP?

    He only has two loses. That's one less than Conor. Why would he even be in this poll?

    Machida fans are highly overlooked in the regard.

    Anderson Silva. The guy made a name for himself acting a fool in fights and getting away with it, then all of a sudden he does it gets knocked out and it's a fluke? Play with fire you get burned. Although I can agree the second fight ended weirdly no doubt, he was getting his ass beaten soundly to that point. Weidman just had his number and Anderson fans refused to accept it.

    Lol. Conor fans make excuses
    for his WINS as well as his losses.

    "Both of his ACL's were torn."
    "Nate was 250lbs & had mace."

    You could fill an ocean with the amount of tears shed by Diaz fans after the Condit fight.
