Alongside Anderson Silva, Gilbert Melendez and the next name on this list, Carlos Condit is arguably the best fighter in the world without a title.
He's been so impressive throughout his career that it seems almost distasteful to pick apart any aspect of his game.
But despite elite-level striking, unmatched guts, thunderous transitions and an iron chin, Condit's wrestling abilities have never truly flourished.
Over his last three fights—a five-round title fight opposite Georges St-Pierre, a fourth-round TKO victory over Martin Kampmann and a Fight of the Year candidate with Johny Hendricks—"The Natural Born Killer" has been taken down a grand total of 25 times.
For a fighter of his caliber, one who deserves to be mentioned alongside guys like GSP and "Bigg Rigg," that's simply inexcusable.
As a matter of fact, it's downright shameful. Condit is so prolific on his feet and so dominant in the trenches that it truly takes away from his championship potential.
Luckily for him, as well as any fan who loves a brawl, Condit draws the formidable Matt Brown later this month.
