Alistair Overeem and the Biggest Busts in UFC History
Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports
Alistair Overeem has suffered two consecutive scary knockouts in a row, casting doubt on his place in the UFC.

Free agents coming with a lot of hype behind them are a part of sports. So, too, are free agents not living up to the expectations that fans and media pin on them.

MMA is no different, and there are no shortage of fighters that have flopped mightily when joining the UFC.

The latest person to fit that bill is former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem. For the second fight in a row, the hulking kickboxer has found himself knocked out at the hands of a supposedly technically inferior fighter. The questions naturally follow.

Is Overeem past his prime? Was he actually that good? Is he getting cut? Is he a bust?

This situation isn't new, mind you. We've seen it a few times before and more often than not, those questions end up having a "yes" answer. 

So who else shares this storyline? Who else has failed to live up to the high standards thrust upon them? Find out right here!
