this changes from month to month. Not long ago Jon Jones would be the runaway pick for most underrated fighter in the world, now some might argue that he's overrated
Even though they're champs, I think Frankie Edgar and even Jose Aldo are both somewhat underrated (neither receive the publicity they deserve, imo). I also think Jake Shields, Matt Hammil, and Jon Fitch all fly way underneath the radar as well. hmmmm, they're all wrestlers.....I guess it's cause many consider them boring fighters.
Who else would yall consider underrated? I know there are a bunch of young up-and-comers rising through the ranks right now....I'm curious what others think.
As far as overrated fighters go, Brock is the first that comes to mind (even though he has now been exposed). I still consider him hugely overrated b/c of all the hype and attention he still receives. He's a huge cash cow for the UFC though, so I kinda understand. I'll probably catch crap for this, but Overeem is the most overrated champ imo. Dude has been Ko'ed a whole bunch, but he hasn't lost in mma since 2007. I really want to see him and Cain fight for a unified belt.
And boxing guys chime in. I haven't followed the sport lately, but I'd like to hear some names thrown out there.
