    Exposed as being overrated and then having their weaknesses shown.

    Mark Hunt was a well regarded HW, however it seemed that his rank was perhaps too high in MMA because he didn't fight many submission opponents aside from his debut. Then he loses to Barnett and Fedor.

    Mike Swick was stacking up victories in the UFC, on his way to the title shot. Then he loses due to a size advantage (and probably a bit of a skill advantage) to Yushin Okami. Not only was he exposed as not being a top MW contender but he is moving down in weight now.

    Post any others you can think of. But for example, I don't consider Rich Franklin to be exposed...as I honestly don't think he has been the same fighter in his last few fights.

    My Choice is Wand Silva this guy was unbeatable before he stepped in with Mirko who took him apart then Hendo beat him.

    He didn't get exposed for anything, and besides, CC is a HW.

    uh......... crocop looked like shit in his first ufc fight, looked like shit and got finished by Gonzaga, it wouldn't be a stretch to believe that he's past his prime.......... believe me, i'm the last guy who wants to believe this, i'm a huge Pride sackrider.

    i think people dont know what getting exposed means.

    CC getting KO'd isnt getting exposed, his weakness isnt high kicks, it was just random. Same with GSP, his striking isnt weak, he just fucked up.

    Chuck got exposed, Rampage smashign him again solidified that Chuck cannot fight strikers anywhere near as well as he had over the past years of fighting wrestlers.

    BJ exposed Hughes for someone that cannot fight if he cant get you down. Sure we kind of knew that, but we never saw it happen. GSP confirmed it.

    seriously, after over 40 fights the guy's chin has been beaten once. It's official, Wandy has a weak chin! :rolleyes:

    I don't really think that GSP got exposed from that one fight...he lost pretty bad via striking and the whole excuses a few months later wasn't the best but he didn't get dominated by Serra for 5 rounds...maybe if he loses badly to Koscheck then I would consider him "exposed"

    as for Wanderlei, I think it exposed him as not being an invincible machine of destruction but he still hold those two (relatively recent) wins over Q. Jackson so I don't consider him exposed really

    Gettin knocked out by a Cro Cop (HW) LHK to the head has nothing to do with having a weak chin.
