Top 5 Excuse Makers in UFC History

While on the surface it may seem as simple as who scores the most strikes, takedowns, and submission attempts, there are numerous other factors that go into every fight when it comes to determining the individual who eventually exits the ring with a victory in tow. How healthy was each competitor entering the clash? Were there any personal issues affecting performance? Was cheating, poor officiating, or questionable judging involved? The list goes on and on…especially when it comes to a number of UFC veterans who tend to come up with all sorts of reasons for their failures in the Octagon. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    I never found Chael to be an “excuse maker” he’s always been one of the few fighters to own up to all his failings and admit that he makes mistakes. By that same token, I wouldn’t put Silva on the list either. He’s may be 2-2 in complaints, but it’s still only 2.

    BJ Penn on the other hand was always a great excuse maker, or his fan base was it’s hard to tell sometimes. Brandon Vera was even worse.
    I’d put Penn at #5 an Vera at #4.

    Nate Diaz could also be substituted in at #5
