    Which fighter on the UFC roster had their stock plummet the most in 2014?

    Was it somebody involved in a testing scandal or controversy? (Wanderlei, Le)
    Was it someone who fell from top contender status to potential journeyman? (Glover)
    Was it someone who could not stay healthy? (Cain)

    Whose stock fell the most?

    Francis Carmont. Went from 6-fight winning streak (in the UFC) to 3-fight losing streak and being cut from the UFC in 6 months.

    Nate Diaz comes to mind. He's fortunate in that he's a marketable enough draw and a good enough fighter to which he should be able to recover without much issue, but he had a poor year all around, in and out the cage.

    Just looking at it in terms of his current ability to have a fighting career. He looked broken.

    Sonnen went from the next president to a guy in the unemployement line. But now he's with ESPN so it went for the better.
    Wanderlei the legend got a lifetime ban.
    From active fighters I thnk Reems went down big time even if he ended the year 2-1.

    Hendricks. went from beating GSP and being the guy almost everyone was siding with, kind of the uncrowned hero, to getting the absolute tar beat out of him twice by Lawler and having most his fans turn on him. Personally, I thought he won BOTH Lawler fights, but theres no denying he was broken by the end of the second fight.
