Stat of the Day: Loss Streaks after Win Streaks

Oct 1, 2023

After recently realizing that Tony Ferguson had won 12 straight fights, and then lost 6 straight… I started to think, has something like this ever happened before in Pro MMA?  And then I started to wonder if anything WORSE than this had happened?

Though, it is tough to grade “worse” in this case.  If a fighter wins 15 straight, then loses 6, that’s probably worse.  But what if they won 8, then lost 8, is that worse?  You get my point.

Here are some good finds…

  • Kevin Asplund has a mighty impressive case, winning 15 straight, then dropping 5, then winning 1, then dropping 5 more in a row.
  • Allan Zuniga may actually beat Tony, if you count his fight in TUF 22.  His career is especially weird, where he starts out at 13-0, loses the TUF fight, then loses 5 pro fights and has not fought since.
  • Mitsuhisa Sunabe has an active streak to watch.  He won 16 in a row before his current 4 fight losing streak.
  • How about Johnnie Roades?  This guy won 6 straight, then lost 11 in a row!


Did I miss anyone?  Let me know in the comments!

    Jason Reinhardt is a case of a very mediocre fighter who would not have made it into the UFC under normal circumstances, fighting only the most cannest of cans he could find on the regionals to build that win streak.

    Dominick reyes 12-0 began career. Now on a brutal 4 fight losing streak with back to back to back knocked out.

    Chris Daukaus decent 4-0 ufc career start all TKOs. now 0-4 all TKO defeats.

    Anytime I see a decent fighter go 0-4 with multiple Knocked Out, also think of Andrei Arlovski going 0-4 3x in his career (0-5 one of those times, finished a bunch, KTFO shiiit a few maybe more idk)

    Not quite the same, but I immediately think of 18-0 Jason Reinhardt.

    Began his career 18-0 all finishes. Loses
    to Joe lauzon in the ufc to go 18-1.

    Picks up 2 more wins/finishes (20 wins 20 finishes!), and then loses twice more in the ufc and retires at 20-3 (zero decisions).

    All UFC losses he was finished and it was in 3 different weight classes.
