Most Overrated MMA Fighters


The Top Ten

1 Fedor Emelianenko Fedor Emelianenko Fedor Vladimirovich Emelianenko is a Russian heavyweight mixed martial artist, sambist, and judoka, currently competing for Rizin Fighting Federation.

He was considered the best fighter in the world which in pride was fighters like Kevin Randleman who had 2 losses than 1 win to get a title shot, after losing to Fedor he lost 3 more fights, also Mark Hunt who had his last fight a loss and somehow got a title shot, but after he lost to Fedor he lost his next 4 fights. That is the case with most of Fedors opponents. then he left pride and got smashed by strikeforce fighters. I honestly think he's the most Overrated fighter ever. - globman3

Had a chance to really solidify himself as the GOAT in 2009 but blew it by choosing to duck fighters like Cain, Junior, Carwin and the champion at the time Brock, in the UFC. Then went to Strikeforce where he thought he would be safe only to duck the champion there (Overeem), get submitted by Werdum, get his ass handed to him by Big Foot Silva, and KO'd by a forty-something year old middleweight, Dan Henderson. Fedor is the most overrated MMA fighter I've ever seen and his fan base is the worse by not only trying to convince others but convince themselves as well that he is the greatest.

2 Alistair Overeem Alistair Overeem

Even though fedor fought a lot of bums
If you a fighter or a analyst you can tell he is skilled!

He was supposed to be the next big thing. He held the Dream, Strikeforce, and K1 titles, he won his first fight against Brock Lesnar, The only reason Brock isn't on the list is because he's not an MMA fighter anymore. After beating Brock, Brock retired and went back to the WWE. Alistair would then go onto losing his next 2 fights via KO. - globman3

3 Brock Lesnar Brock Lesnar Brock Edward Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler, professional American football player, and mixed martial artist who is currently signed to WWE.

Worst stand up ever. Only person that rivals him for that title is Jake Shields.

4 Glover Teixeira Glover Teixeira Glover Lucas Teixeira is a Brazilian mixed martial artist and former member of the Brazilian National Wrestling Team, who currently competes in the Light Heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

He's just never looked too impressive against prime fighters

Hopefully Jon Jones ko's him in the first round - symonC1

Glover Teixeira is next in line for a shot on Jon Jones, but why? Who has he fought that's any good? He fought a washed up Rampage, Ryan Bader, James Te Huna, not a single top 10 guy, so why is he getting a shot at the belt? - globman3

He eats fufu

5 Luke Rockhold Luke Rockhold Luke Skyler Rockhold is an American mixed martial artist competing in the UFC, where he is the current UFC Middleweight Champion.

Luke Rockhold...the current UFC Middleweight champion...first person to defeat Chris Weidman...yeah he sure is overrated.

He was the undefeated strikeforce middleweight champion, came over to the UFC and got KO'd in his first fight. - globman3

6 Hector Lombard

Got knocked out by old passed prime dan henderson

He was 32-2 in his MMA carrier also being the Bellator Middleweight champion, he came in the UFC, everyone thought he would be the one to beat Anderson Silva, but he lost his first fight to Tim Boetsch, Tim lost his next 2 after beating Lombard. Hector then won his next fight looking great, but lost his next to Yushin Okami who recently got cut from the UFC. Hector dropped down the welterweight and KO'd Nate Marquart, but I think he will lose his next. - globman3

7 Uriah Hall Uriah Hall Uriah Alexander Hall is a Jamaican mixed martial artist and former kickboxer who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, in its middleweight division.

He was the most feared fighter on TUF but once he made it to the ufc he has been 0-2. - globman3

8 Ronda Rousey Ronda Rousey

She is one dimensional and has been fighting tomatoe cans her entire career

9 Jake Shields

Some of the worse striking I've ever seen. Never looks comfortable striking.

He came in the UFC on a 14 fight win streak undefeated for 6 years has wins over Dan Henderson, Robbie Lawler, and Jason Miller. He won his UFC debut via split decision to Martin Kampmann. then got smashed by GSP, and his next fight KO'd by Jake Ellenberger. he won his next 4 all by decision 2 split. I think he's still pretty overrated. - globman3

10 Chris Weidman Chris Weidman Christopher James "Chris" Weidman is an American mixed martial artist. He is the former UFC Middleweight Champion.

Chris Weidman may be the UFC middleweight champion but how did he get there? His #1 contender fight was with Mark Munoz who is 1-2 in his last 3 fights then he got a lucky KO over Anderson Silva who will probably win the rematch. - globman3

17 Jon Jones Jon Jones Jonathan Dwight "Jon" Jones is an American mixed martial artist and current interim UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.

He's a dirty fighter that cheats to win and fails drug tests and causes trouble outside of the sport - Sabbath

PED user, Eyepokes, Fighting OLD and PAST THEIR PRIME fighters and ALWAYS being bigger and taller than his opponents!

He fought old aged fighters, used PED's during his entire UFC career and Eye Poked most of his UFC opponents.

He is a cheater and is overrated.

I hate to say it jones may be the king of the weight cut...
But all his wins except dc were against past their prime on the way out legends
Yes they were legends but ken shamrock is a legend... jones defeated stephan bonner chael sonnen rampage jackson rashad evans and shogun rua and lyoto machida as part of his supposed "best winstreak in ufc history" all these men were well past their prime at the time they fought jones. Rashad having been stank legged by machida
Bonner having lost to literally everyone jackson having lost his title and shogun loosing to forest grifn ffs

Jones' size advantage over most of his opponents SHOULD lead to stoppage victories IF he is one of the goats
But they don't...

Jones has failed 3 of 4 ped tests since usada took over ufc testing
He has fought twice since then barely beating osp ( who went on to loose by ko twice in the next year) and then dropping 2 rounds to a 40 year old dc before landing an expected headkick he should ...more - Readybreck

18 Kevin Randleman

Guy was terrible! Even lost a fight to the floor once upon a time!
