There was a guy on the Ultimate Fighter that Dana White compared to GSP and described as "goosebump-inducing".... not sure what his name was tho

Tarec, Kampmann, Condit, Phil Davis, Bendo

Not saying that these guys are not good fighters. I just think that the general MMA fan truly believes that these fighters currently are, and/or are going to be, better than they actually are. Phone Post

Rory Macdonald.

Never beat a top ten fighter.. yet is currently ranked #3.

Gradually climbed the top ten rankings the past couple of months... from #10 to #7 to #5 to #3... without even fighting during that time.

The only top ten fighter he fought finished him in brutal fashion.

His biggest wins were over two non-top ten LIGHTWEIGHTS.. Nate Diaz and BJ Penn.. both of whom he was unable to finish.
