Losing is never easy—especially when you're a UFC champion. As difficult as it is to get to the mountain top, it's even more difficult to stay there.

Losing one's title would put any guy at rock bottom, but the fighters on this list refused to stay there. They came back in their next bout to remind us just what helped make them a champion in the first place.
