With fights like Todd Duffee vs. Tim Hague, Joe Lauzon vs. Jens Pulver and, more recently, John Moraga vs. Ulysses Gomez, it's easy to say “that guy is going to become a great fighter.” Naturally, however, there is a flipside to this.
We have seen more than a few UFC debuts over the years that made us squirm, led us to think “what is this guy even doing here?” or even feel pity for the poor guy who just got his face punched off in front of a global audience.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the 10 Ugliest Debuts in UFC History.
Here, we take a look at some of the fighters that chose the wrong foot to put forward in their first appearance on “The Show.” Some are names you'll remember for the better days in their career. Some you'll remember for how bad they were in these fights. Some, meanwhile, will just make you go “who?”
Either way, prepare to have your memories refreshed of these ugly, horrible fights that you probably wish never even happened in the first place!
