Could-Have-Beens of MMA

Was just thinking of some people who either self-sabotaged their careers or never reached their potential. Its just a handful that immediately spring to mind but I know there are many others.

Who have you got as people that either were cut short by injury, addiction, lack of discipline or early retirement?

Wiki says 'In early 2010 Terrell expressed his desire to continue fighting'
anyone know what happened to that?

Kid Yamamoto is as physically gifted as anyone at 123-135=145 has ever been , even now. I really thought he would be a legend. Instead he never got better when everyone else did.

I wish Junie Browning had made something of himself, but he sure is a train wreck I love to watch!
