22Mauricio Shogun Rua

Shogun is a wrecking machine. One of the greatest in his prime. He might be losing more often recently but after all the wars he's been in through his career he is truly the best.

23Dan Severn

Severn is 52+ yrs old and still completes! Also Dan Severn holds a professional MMA Record of 100-18-7! Beat that ANYONE?!? And is in the UFC Hall of Fame and a former UFC Super fight Champion. The Beast is a legend!

24Nick Diaz

Nick diaz always loses in close decisions. His boxing is amazing he never gets up mitten and he is the most likable anti hero ever. How can you not consider him?

Nick Diaz! The greatest boxer in MMA and trash talker but he certainly knows how to back it up. WAR DIAZ!

Where you at George! Yeah that's right homie I'm coming hire on that list for you homie! I want my rematch George.

Nick Diaz not only is a Gracie black belt but he has great stand up he should be at least top 15

25Kazushi Sakuraba

A man who should have fought his entire career at 170, instead made a living fighting lhws and hws... And winning more often then not. It seemed at times Pride was trying to kill him with the matchups, but he always came to fight and put on a show for the crowd and provided some of the best finishes in mma history.

he beat royce gracie, royler gracie, rezno gracie, ryan gracie. gracie hunter - itg

Why royce gracie in to the top ten, but the "GRACIE HUNTER" isn't? I mean, he called GRACIE HUNTER for a reason

27Frankie EdgarFrank James "Frankie" Edgar is an American mixed martial artist from New Jersey who competes as a Featherweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and is a former UFC Lightweight Champion.

He beat Penn 3 times he dominated cub swanson in my opinion he beat ben henderson

So much stamina, never quits, can take a punch, is super humble.

He beat penn when be was old as hell

Iron will just iron will.

28Frank Mir

He is probably one of the fighter who has the bes skill set in MMA. He has a very dangerous ground and wicked stand up. What really defeats him is that there are much more stronger fighter than he is. But skill wise I think he is one of the best.

29Dominick Cruz

Cruz combines constant lateral motion with precise, in-and-out striking. Known as one of the most agile fighters in MMA, he is noted for his quick footwork, head movement, and use of feints. He often attacks with combinations, step-in jabs, and single strikes thrown from angles. In addition to his striking, Cruz has extensive training in amateur wrestling.

32Michael BispingMichael Bisping is an English actor and mixed martial artist who competes in the middleweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

If you consider that 3 of his 7 losses were at the hands of athletes using PDFs, he then has 4 losses out of 34 UFC fights - a truly extraordinary record, nearly unmatched! Like or don't like Bisping - you can not change the fact and any true MMA fan recognizes his accomplishments. He is one of few top MMA athletes in the world who has competed at the highest level in the sport for over a decade 1994 to present. Only a few elite MMA athletes can match his ongoing, active record.

34Tito Ortiz

Longest reigning light heavyweight champ of all time. Give the man the credit he deserves. He is the biggest villain in mma history and helped make the sport what it is today.

long time 205 ufc champion he's beatin wanderlei silva, ken shamrock 3times, slammed evan tanner uncuntious, beat forrest griffin - itg

Then went 3-8-1 in his past 12 fights. Not to add he may have beat Ken shamrock but he was way out of his prime

One punch is all Aldo could take, Conor needs to move WAY up on this list!
