Mixed Martial Arts fans probably have the shortest memories of all sports fans.

In no other sport does a guy go from being the greatest fighter we've ever seen to a washed-up has-been in the minds off casual fans.

Shinya Aoki might be one of the better examples of this phenomenon.

One day he was ranked as perhaps the number 2 lightweight in the world, and the next day people were saying that he'd get his butt kicked by anybody in the UFC's lightweight division.

Now, there may be some truth to the idea that his lack of striking and mediocre wrestling do leave him vulnerable against certain types of fighters, but he's still beat a ton of quality fighters, and that's the only thing that really matters in MMA.

Here's a list of the top seven fighters who don't suck.
