    I think it’s the Boa Constrictor Alexey Oleynik tbh.


    Maybe it’s overeem but didn’t he win a Interim belt or something like that?

    Overeem. IMO he's the greatest HW period to never get a UFC belt, his resume is better than Cro Cop's.

    edit: if you exclude Fedor...

    Cro Cop? Although there was nothing great about his tenure in UFC.

    Other than him it's Overeem, then you are into guys like Ngannou, Bigfoot, Hunt and Travis Brown.

    If you are decent heavy the odds are heavily in your favour that you will take the strap at some point.

    Oleinik / Overeem / Mirko Cro Cop / Francis. If we look at the fighters who have never got a UFC shot, then Fedor, no doubt.

    It's probably honestly Francis givin who he's beat and how he's beaten them.

    But I'll throw Pedro Rizzo's name in the hat just because I like the guy.

    I thought Pedro got a belt , a tourney belt?

    edit:
    Nah he didnt. But cool to google him and remember how raw and exciting cage fighting was back then.

    Overeem has won K-1 and Dream and Strikeforce so I dunno if he applies. Regardless, it's between Ubereem and Ngannou.
