Fighters YOU believe are washed up.

I'd say that Wanderlei and Mirko are just washed up and will probably never get a shot for the title, yet will remain legends. Same with Joe Daddy, its unfortunate though as he's only 28, which is quite young. And ofcourse Keith Jardine... the dude gets KO'd so many times now.

We need to define "washed up" first. Is somebody washed up because he will never be champ? Than the entire MW division looks pretty washed up to me now ;) Joe Daddy may be down to gatekeeping but he is not washed up. He's probably as good as he's ever been. Competition just starts to pass him by.

 

IMO a washed up fighter is someone who was once great or at least really good and has now fallen from his former excellence by a mile because of age, the wear on his body or whatever.

 

Clearly washed up IMO: Tim Sylvia, Mark Coleman, CroCop

 

Arguably washed up: Rich Franklin, Chuck Lidell, Matt Hughes (doesn't mean guys like Chuck and Hughes aren't still good fighters. But they are far from what they used to be)

 

Looks washed up but actually just got bypassed by the evolution of the sport: Joe Daddy, Forrest Griffin

Forrest Griffin - Not great at any specific art of MMA but decently good at all . Absolutely ZERO KO power. He used to have the most heart until Anderson Silva wiped his nose and he fell over with his hands waving in the air.

 

Others include:Crocop ( for sure finished havent seen a leg kick in a few fights which is unbelievable) , Keith Jardine, Liddell, Ortiz maybe, Hughes, Big Nog ( slowly declinign to that stage), Rich Frabjlin might be getting there soon as well, Sherk on the decline , colemans already out but hes been said so ill include him and im sure there are others
