Looking at Vitor Belfort's record, i noticed that although he has 9 losses, he has lost to 7 quality fighters:

Couture
Sakuraba
Overeem
Liddell
Tito
Dan Henderson
Anderson

Sean Sherk only has 4 losses:

GSP
Matt Hughes
BJ
Frankie Edgar
_______________________________________________

can anyone else think of any other fighters with losses who have only lost to quality opponents? I know the word "quality" is debatable. One could consider quality losses as losses to champs or could be decisions where that fighter got screwed or won FOTN award.

edit: let's make it fighters w/ a minimum of 4 losses

i wanted to add Tito, but Hamill loss isnt quality. also, i'd like to see how lil nog does in his next couple to see if he still counts as quality. but this is all debatable. would anyone count tito?

What's most impressive is that whenever he rematched anyone who's beat him, he's avenged it with KOs.

Coleman
Forrest
Machida
