    There have been many fighters who in the early days just entered to prove how tough they were with very little prerequisite skills to do battle..,,,,However, I am almost positive that one of the UFC guys in the ring the other day, had only started training 3 years prior.. It may have been the guy Cowboy beat.

    Regardless, there HAS to be some guys on the radar that may not have been Division 1 or even trained any combat until later years but still has something that says, This guy is a Fighter!

    Can anyone think of any current late bloomers who MAY, show the MMA world that prior accomplishments have very little weight in a mano s mano battle?

    Mike Perry?

    I mean hes the best one i can think of.... Not that I think hes amazing i literally just cant think of anyone very good.

    He seems like a rags to riches guy and with greg jackson and some patience he could possible progress a little further...

    Even if he doesn't, he did damn good. Hes a pro fighter making a living doing what he loves lol.

    Anthony Smith vs Jon Jones is the right answer.

    Full time construction worker vs longtime UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion

    If Jones loses to Lionheart, it will easily eclipse Serra/GSP.

    Canner was 3feet smaller and 60lbs lighter when he fought Diaz and got his ass fucked.

    Horiguchi vs Caldewell was literally David vs Goliath
