Most MMA fighters are true warriors. They face their fears, constantly train to overcome adversity, and they can give and take beatings like men.
Some, though, don't take defeat that easily, and some even dodge fights altogether.
The following is a list of fighters who have at least once displayed fits of whining, denial and cojones so small that they've avoided other fighters all together.
Aside from being rung up on group rape charges, Kimo's manager and playing Random Task in the Austin Powers franchise, Joe Son was a complete failure in his other venture: MMA.
Son debuted in UFC 4, where he faced Keith Hackney and was repeatedly hit in the groin before being submitted by...front strangle choke. That's right, Hackney, a Karate fighter, didn't even know how to choke and choked out Joe.
Son went on to gain a 0-4 MMA career, losing every fight in the first round.
Have you seen the video of that Capoeira guy who was doing all those flips, kicks and summersaults? Well, he had the crowd cheering, and his opponent wasn't doing anything but standing there; well, at first, anyway.
After watching the Capoeira freak do his thing, his opponent decided to brutally knock him out, only to stun the crowd. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-znrs5bVmA
Word of advice: Only the Strong was only a movie.
Kiai Master Ryukerin claimed to have a 200-0 fighting record. Being so experienced, he decided to take on a kickboxer, which would have been a small feat if he had lived up to his reputation.
Master Ryukerin took a punch square in the face, a kick to the stomach and promptly had to be helped by the medics on hand. Guess that record is 200-1 now, huh?

Jose Canseco faced Hong Man Choi in his MMA debut. After throwing a few shots and apparently stubbing his toe, he proceeded to basically give in to Choi and take a beating in the fetal position.
Yes, it's true that Choi is over seven feet tall, and it takes courage to step in the ring with a guy that size, but come on Canseco. MMA ain't baseball.
When Patrick Smith faced Ken Shamrock after the UFC was a new beast in the market, he had no idea what a submission was. After being heel hooked, Smith decided to still, yet again, trash talk Shamrock.
With a 20-15 MMA record, Smith's mouth has always been bigger than his game.
Jay Silva is famous for one reason: being knocked out in six seconds by Hector Lombard. Being a veteran of the UFC, Silva has an impressive UFC record of 0-3.
Before their Bellator match, Silva talked a bit of trash. He said something to the effect of people not throwing enough punches at Lombard in the past and that he had trained with Rampage, but I was distracted after seeing him hit the mat when the bell hadn't even stopped ringing.
The best part was that after the match, Silva tried to argue with the ref, apparently saying something along the lines of, "Why'd you stop it? I only got knocked unconscious!" I know, what was that ref thinking, Jay?
Michael Bisping has talent, but not much. As a result of knowing he couldn't match him, he had to try and find a way to get underneath Dan Henderson's skin.
His choice? The old "water bottle in the face" gag. Hendo didn't seem to appreciate it as we found out during UFC 100, which resulted in Bisping being knocked out harder than probably anyone in the history of MMA.
Hendo's first shot was to win the fight. The second one was personal. How sweet a victory it was, too.
Tito dodged Chuck by claiming they were friends and swore not to fight each other. When Chuck was asked about it, he had no recollection of such a social contract.
Then the two met in the Octagon, and we knew why Tito was so quick to dismiss fighting Chuck. He learned his lesson twice.
Bob Sapp is a big guy. He has faced some big opponents and has recently fared poorly in MMA.
When he faced Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic in a kickboxing match, Cro Cop landed a hard left cross to Sapp's face, knocking him out.
Well, it was ruled a knockout, but the real reason Sapp didn't get up is because he started compulsively crying in the fetal position. What a wussy.
What a whiner Paul Daley was after being completely dominated by Josh Koscheck. He couldn't land anything in their fight, so he decided to make a little girl move and swing at Koscheck after the match was over.
Even so, Daley's strike didn't even hurt Kos. Daley was sequentially cut from the UFC for officially the wussiest display in the history of MMA.
