UFC 5-for-5: The 5 Worst Beatdowns in the Last 5 Years

The pre-fight buildup to any UFC bout is the same:

Fighter A: "I'm in the best shape of my life. There is no way I can lose this fight."

Fighter B: "Fighter A has no idea what he got himself into. I am going to smash him and prove who the better man is tonight."

Chael Sonnen: "I can beat both these clowns with both arms tied behind my back. Dana, give me a shot!"

Every fighter thinks he is the best, at least externally, but sometimes when the Octagon door closes, it becomes painfully evident that our hypothetical Fighter B has no business being in the cage with Fighter A. In fact, he probably shouldn't even be allowed to admit he ever faced him—the beatdown is sometimes just that bad. 

For those moments where Fighter B had to pull some straight-up Wayne's World "We're not worthy!" routine, I propose the following slideshow. 

Sit back and enjoy the one-sided thrashings that ensue.
