After watching his career enter the shadow realm this weekend I couldn’t help think “Why didn’t Jeremy Stephens ever throw a bottle or jump over the table at Conor?” during the infamous UFC 205 press conference. Could have made himself a millionaire and not the punchline of the most famous MMA one-liner in history.
He froze…he didn’t expect that barb from Conor and the mental midget couldn’t think on the fly.
Biggest missed opportunity was Rickson vs Sakuraba & Fedor vs Brock.
Still pissed we never got to see Jones vs Rumble
A healthy Cain
Rumor has it that Randleman got offered a shot at Tito’s title and got so excited he broke his hand punching a wall causing him to miss the fight. If true i would say that was a big one i think he would have likely beaten Tito.
Fedor vs. Brock, Anderson vs. GSP, GSP vs. Khabib, Randy vs. Crocop.
Maybe Cyborg vs. Ronda or yamma 2 for the shitshows.
Khabib vs Ferguson considering all the times that fight got booked and fell through.
Brock Lesnar getting into MMA training right after college
when jones toe broke in half vs chael… chael was almost champ
maybe if he had pointed out the toe to the ref during the round…
As far as missed fight opportunities…
Prime Nick Diaz vs Mayhem Miller
Evan Tanner vs Matt Hughes (Hughes was going to move up to 185 and coach TUF against Tanner, but his friend Rich Franklin won the fight)
Tony vs Khabib anytime before 2017.
Anderson vs GSP. Joe Rogan even said on air in Abu Dhabi “if Anderson Silva wins this fight, GSP is going to move up to 185 and fight him”. But then he had a lackluster fight, Dana threatened to cut him. Fight slipped away.
That Silva GSP thing was never close to happening imo. Joe said that but I don’t think it was true. Of Dana and GSP had wanted it it would have happened
Tito vs guy metzer 2
Fedor vs couture/Barnett/Brock
Ken shamrock dropping out of two tournaments. That’s one thing that always got me about him. As great as he was he never won the ufc tournament
Tito & Guy are 1-1.
That’s right I forgot bout the first fight. Ortiz vs mezger 3 then
RDA not cashing in the Mcgregor fight and possibly stopping the Conor train dead in its tracks.
Kimbo vs Liddell, Tito or the James Toney UFC fight
James Toney vs Liddell
