Rich Clementi dudes beaten Anthony Johnson, Sam Stout, Terry Etim and Melvin Guillard!



he also has lost to a couple mid level fighters in smaller promotions, like his most recent opponent Chris Clements at the Score Fighting Series. Clementi had his back a few times, had mount and other dominant positions vs a guy who is pretty crappy off his back and couldnt finish him. he then got dropped by a backfist before getting pounded on for a TKO loss.

oh and Stout won that fight, Clementi got a gift

Obviously he is back in the UFC now, but I couldn't ever figure out why Werdum got cut after he got KTFOd by Dos Santos. Prior to that he had won 2 straight over a very game Man-bear-pig Gonzaga, and Brandon Vera before he turned into Captain Disappointment.



I think Werdum left/got cut because of a contract dispute. Also Dos Santos was in his first UFC fight...we cant use what we know now about JDS to when he made his debut. At the time he lost of a newcomer and wasnt worth the money he was making or asking for, according to the boss

Danillo Villfefort 13-4

In his first fight in UFC, got accidental head-butt. As result, got cut over his eye and couldn't see due the blood. Misinterpretation b/w Villefort (Native of Brazil, poor English) and the Referee(didn't see the accidental head-butt) cause the fight to be over with a Doctor Stoppage.

Since being cut by the UFC, Villefort had won 4 out of 5 of his last fights. However in his last fight against Nate James. The judges reward a controversial unanimous decision to Nate James. If you watch the fight or look at any MMA website results of the fight. Clearly Villefort won the 1st and 2nd rounds. James only won the 3th round.

Thus, Villefort is truly 5 out of 5 of all his fights since being cut by the UFC. Thus, I believe should get another chance in the UFC.

I know this probably sounds retarded, but if Kevin Randleman got with a good camp, then he'd be a tough fight for a lot of lhw's



yep... you were right the first time



Oh, I guess you never saw him fight in pride



Then you would be wrong my friend. I have been familiar with him ever since he beat Maurice Smith in his UFC debut. I know there is alot of nutthuggers around here that worship anyone who accomplished anything in Pride, but we are talking about a guy that has lost his last 4 fights (9 of his last 11). So why does this guy deserve another shot? Because he beat Cro Cop... 10 years ago?

I say Jeff Curran.

He's never really been "beaten" in a Zuffa promotion except by Uriah Faber. He's lost a couple of controversial decisions and some less controversial one's. But it seems like they are exclusively matching him up with wrestlers.

He'd be a really good gate keeper against strikers and other jiu jitsu guys.

2 words - Paul Daley.



I came into this thread looking specifically for someone to say Daley so that I could bust out the "boo this man" .gif, but you pre-emptively protected yourself with a troll face, well played.

As of today, he doesn't deserve a shot, but after the pride era ended then I think he should have.

Babalu if he beats Manhoef. His only losses in the past 5 years were to Hendo and Mousasi.

If he would have went on any kind of a winning streak after Pride, I might be able to see your point. Not to mention, he lost 7 of his last 8 Pride fights. Truth is he was never really that good. (4-3 UFC record, 4-7 Pride record, 0-2 Strikeforce record)

Hahahaha yeah a guy who's currently in hiding in Morocco for being involved in the biggest bank heist in UK history and the police have all the forensic evidence to say it was him with over £40 million of the £53 million not found.. I don't think his face will ever be seen in the UK, USA and especially not on TV again, unless it's the news or National geographic special on incredible offenders.

He's not in hiding, he's in prison. He's been in prison for like 6 years or something.
