Honoring Mixed Martial Art's greatest Heavyweight division fighter's.

The Top TenXW

1Fedor EmelianenkoFedor Vladimirovich Emelianenko is a Russian heavyweight mixed martial artist, sambist, and judoka, currently competing for Rizin Fighting Federation.

his simply is the best heavy weight of all time and the best fighter of all time. Actions speak louder than words watch fedors fights

Never one mistake made that cost him a fight. Everyone else on this list has lost... some to fighters who weren't that good. Has faced the top ranked fighters consistently.

The only fight he lost was his first ever fight. But then beat him later on in his Career. I am a MMA FANATIC and ABSOLUTELY NO ONE can beat him. His record is 47-0 and he is still fighting on Strikeforce... Stop hatinG!

This guy is the best MMA fighter of all time.

4Randy Couture

he's one of the best hearted fighters on the planet the guys got so much respect to add to his amazing fight resume

Has held multiple titles in the UFC, and has been around, and still is. - skullgangjewelz

5Cain Velasquez

Injuries and long layoffs have played a factor in Cain's fighting career. If it weren't for those things happening to him, Cain would have easily already established himself as the greatest heavyweight fighter in MMA. He might even be the best MMA fighter ever.

No one can beat Cain in his proper condition... NO ONE!

You are all joke lesnar? Dos santos? Overeem?

Funny how Brock Lesnar is ahead of Cain in this list.
