The Ultimate Fighter series has produced a lot of well-know, highly regarded fighters. It's even seen a few champions pass through, guys such as Forrest Griffin, Rashad Evans and Matt Serra.
It has also seen its fair share of fighters who were unable to propel their career to a new level.
And then there is another entirely different class that the reality show has produced—guys who were unable to make the most of their time in the house, but have quietly established themselves as solid mixed martial artists since.
Here, we will take a look at five such fighters.
Note that I've avoided well recognized fighters like Melvin Guillard, as well as guys who have peaked and since dropped off, like Marcus Davis.
Instead, I've gone with a crop that drew minimal expectations on the show, and have since demonstrated their improvement to little fanfare.
Feel free to add any names you consider glaring omissions in the comments section.
