Top Ten Best Fighters of All Time
Bruce Lee was the best fighter on earth. But he didn't boast about it, as he was a mature and wise man. That has led some critics to posthumously troll that bruce lee never claimed to be the best fighter? Just because bruce didn't go around screaming like a madman like Ali "I am the greatest"? doesn't mean people can bury head in the sand.
I think bruce gave not so subtle clues that he knew he was the best. But again he was a mature and wise man, comfortable in his skin and self assured to a level that very few are.
Bruce Lee in his lifetime gave subtle intimations he believed there was nobody he couldn't beat. But he wasn't arrogant about it. These are the dangerous ones. Bruce Lee was one to blow trumpet with "I am the greatest" rants like Ali. Ali feared people didn't think he was so had to promote himself.
Bruce Lee didn't need to as anyone who saw Bruce spread the word, through word of mouth.
Bruce Lee said he'd never say I'm No1 ( he didn't have to as his peers vouched for him) but would never admit to being no2.
Bruce Lee thought he could beat anyman in the world in a real confrontation. And most who knew him believed him. Stake their life on it that nobody would have beaten him. And some martial artists of the time, wont admit thinking it which is cool also even though they most likely did.
Bruce Lee knew big men who were bad men also. Not suprised they wouldn't admit Bruce Lee could beat them.
Many great martial artists of the time say he was pound for pound the best martial artist theyd seen. So that way they cover their back and isn't a confession Bruce lee already beat them and is open to interpretation.
And I personally interpret it as they don't think anyone could beat him.
I love Ali as he's entertained me and sacrificed his health in process. God bless you Ali, rest in piece.
But when you asked Bruce straight-out what would happen Bruce would give you honest answer. He said he would kill Ali in the street. People don't want to hear that as Ali is loved and quite rightfully so. We all love Ali don't we.?
Bruce Lee never said Ali would beat him. I think Bob Clouse misunderstood a conversation between 2 cantonese speaking individuals.
But although I know Bruce Lee was a better fighter than Ali ever was Ali gets my vote. As I adore Ali.
Bruce lee was only a little bit better than Ali if better at all. Boxers do not gain as much skills as all around fighters but Muhammad Ali was the greatest boxer and as great as he is at boxing and weighing over 200 lbs he definitely was as good as bruce lee. Muhammad Ali did not just know only boxing he had other skills to. Bruce lee has one inch punch and kicks, krav maga, and kung fu. Muhammad Ali would still be on par since he was faster in running and dodging. Bruce is stronger since he masters his punches and kicks but ali also has more durability that makes a huge difference bruce was a lot smaller. Floyd mayweather punches so fast but floyd and mike tyson could probably not be better than ali when he was at his potential to.
Muhammad Ali is the greatest fighter of all time. Some say Bruce Lee could bring down Ali. Ali is 6'3 weighing 220lbs. Lee is 5'9 weighing 150lbs. If the fight would of happen between Ali and Lee. Ali would win by knockout. Ali would have been controlling the distance. A lot of people say that Lee could just kick Ali in the head, but with Ali's further reach and him being taller it would be very difficult for Lee to do that. Also, Lee wasnt fond of kicking bigger people in the head because his balance goes down giving Lee the disadvantage. Lee could try to get in to Ali, but Ali will beat him to the ground.
Muhammad Ali- the greatest boxer ever to lived and several reasons back that up. He is a strategist, if you have seen the Forman fight you will notice that Forman out strengths Ali so Ali tires out Forman until Forman is so exhausted that Ali takes advantage and knocks him out. Ali is fast, In every fight he is 4 steps ahead, strategy, speed, endurance/stamina, and weaknesses, he will identify where you can be injured most during the fight and will pressure the spot until you cannot withstand anymore.
Mike Tyson is the perfect build for a fighter. He has speed, power, and the mental attitude to destroy anyone. I believe a great fighter is someone who can destroy his opponent, not just hit his opponent. I believe Mike Tyson on the street beats anyone. Once he has you in a corner, no ref can stop the fight, you can't run away. Mike Tyson was not just a good fighter, but a true warrior. Ali punched and ran away, that's baby just like Floyd. If you want to be elusive and hard to fight, fight like Roy Jones Jr. And actually fight. Also mike was knocking people down with gloves, imagine no gloves. He is 240 or so, 5 10, he would throw lee and norris around. Ali wasn't even close to Mikes athletic ability.
Mike tyson is the best because he has the killer instinct, the build of a tank, the speed of a cat, the accuracy of a rifle, and the power of a bear. On the streets, you can't run, there is no ref to save you. Its just you and the beast. He is too big for lee, norris, and jet lee, and Ali was skilled but not a warrior like mike. Plus he gets to take off the gloves.
He didn't have the greatest career as a whole, but during his first 5 years he knocked people down left and right. He could also go to distance when needed. His speed, agility, strength and evasion were unparalleled to any heavyweight before or since. He was a physical specimen with an extreme discipline and style of fighting.
Mike Tyson was about 23 percent fat if Ali was 22 percent fat. Mike Tyson at his full potential would a little more strength than Ali but some less speed. Ali would had better endurance so they would both be pretty equal. Ali probably would have a slight advantage in his power and skills.
Hands down the best mma fighter I have ever watched. He's crazy to watch, image fighting him. He's so explosive. And he's so relaxed. He can fight and be dangerous in every position. If you thing you have him, think twice. He's able to get out of every submission, and his ground and pound is more unique than anything else.
He's great standing up, on the ground, he can take any kind of punishment, but at the end he gets out of every dangerous position and find the way to win, every single time.
He's striking is phenomenal, his Jiu Jitsu is amazing. He's been undefeated for 10 years straight, and nobody understand how the hell he was able to mange that. I don't think we will be able to see a more confident, straight forward fighter like Fedor. He's unique, he just amazes me. Long live to the last emperor!
Heavyweight fighter with a legitimate ground game, that alone puts him over everyone else on this list. He is too big for Silva, can take all of the Traditional Martial Arts fighters down, and crush their face like Minotauro's (I wonder if Bruce Lee ever perfected his sprawl), and could definitely submit top boxers like Ali, who was struggling against Inoki, and Mike Tyson, who would have the position as second best fighter on this list. Sure; Ali was a better boxer, but in a fight I'd take the guy who is knocking people down with hooks to the head, rather than the man who can keep his distance with the jab for 10 rounds. Makes for a good boxer; Not a great fighter, who fights in realitiy rather than the ruleset or container of a boxing ring.
But I digress; Fedor Emelianenko.
If you match Fedor at his prime with any other person on this list when they were at they're prime, regardless of weight; Fedor would eat any of these guys up. Non MMA fighters like Tyson, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Jet Li would not stand a chance in a real life everything goes fighting scenario. The only thing standing between Fedor and a win, is their face.
If you watched him fight in his prime you don't need an explanation for why he's the best fighter to ever walk the planet. Fight guy started to pass him up in his later years but he's still got the fastest hands I've ever seen on a HW with the power to match. Tim Sylvia said he's never met anyone else that can punch that hard.
I agree with the other posts Jet Li should be ranked second he shouldn't be beat by a mere boxer.Jet Li was a monk he was trained day and night to be a fighter and to be ranked 3rd is completely ubsurd. A master in kung fu,skilled with numerous weapons, many fighting styles in his arsenal and a boxer is rated higher than him? Yes Muhammad Ali is brilliant in "boxing" but come on lets be real put him in a ring with a highly skilled badass fighter like Jet Li he will lose. Even his name proves his gifted "Jet" Li he's as fast as a jet.
First of all Jet li is better than chan, norris, the person in places 5, and 6 too. In fact he comes second, right after bruce lee. Not to mention jet li is the second greatest all time. Also UFC fighters are no match for Lee and Li
I think jet li should be the first now on ranking because bruce lee has already gone so no need to talk about him because in nowadays to many best fighter with own skills creat by their imagination. New bruce lee is JET LI or Scot Adkins and Tony Jah. But I 100% sure with JET LI.
Jet li no doubt the best in all of the world. I read his childhood story and from that struggle he became a true champ. He is best fighter the world has ever seen.
I don't believe that Chuck Norris could have beaten Bruce Lee. Chuck Norris is deceiving himself, if he thinks that he could defeat Bruce Lee in a professional fight. Bruce Lee would take Chuck Norris to school and back again.
Chuck norris stomps bruce lee and cassius clay and the other Mexican guy I never heard of. He is the best, he beats them all without even trying that much. cassius was a stupid bad thinker and not even close to the best boxer, bruce lee was a lame actor.
Chuck Norris is a great fighter but he is not the best out there in the world chuck Norris definitely was not as good as Bruce lee. Bruce lee knew more different techniques and has more skill.
Bruce lee was also too fast and strong for him.
Chuck Norris has done so much more as a martial artist than any other! He is also skilled in several different martial arts! Bruce Lee was good, but not even close to Chuck Norris!
He could beat anyone, like everyone knows that. He was the master of bruce lee (who for some reason above him) but he taught bruce lee, and when he was learning he went away for some time and then came back after learning a new type of wing chun but was rejected by his own master but then it proved to be the better one. You can't beat this guy, he beat the best boxer in the world (at the time) and he was only partially injured with a black eye, he survived the war because he was a master of martial arts and he beat the Japanese general who could easily beat three martial arts masters in a matter of secconds.
Yip man was in fact the greatest fighter ever. Records, newspapers and books from his time confirm the he did in fact defeat the world boxing champion during that time, he did fight ten+ men for a generals pleasure during the ear, and he did train Bruce Lee, he was Lee's greatest traine. His wueng chun style was unmatched. He was the perfect combination of speed and strength. He was lightening fast, and strong enough to destroy blocks of cinder with an open handed strike. He was definitely ahead of Lee in his prime, and was still teaching and keeping up with him in his senior age. Yip's mindset was described as "it is not whether if I beat you, it is when I beat you, you won't know whether it was a beating or a vehicle hitting you with full force" Yip man was definitely the best fighter who ever lived.
Yip Man is so intense he's most likely to end up untouchable in most of fights. He so fast and technical, most of his opponents can't keep up with his speed. He is the definition of the word martial art and he was very honorable. With out his teachings of Wing chun, Jin Kune Do wouldn't had never exist.
And come on guys let's face the facts Bruce Lee was just a regular fighter before he was tought Yip, and because of that Bruce became better and smarter fighter. Also he makes "All" fighters in the UFC look like childs play. HAND DOWN!
You can put all the other fighters on this list on one side and Yip Man would beat them all within minutes without breaking a sweat. If you watch Ip Man 3, there is a fight scene between him and Mike Tyson. In real life, he would finish the fight in a few seconds. He is a hundred times better than any fighter on this list and you just have to read his documentary and see the movies to know that. Number one by a light year.
When I say the best fighters, I don't pick fighters who was the most strongest. I believe there were more deadlier fighters than Bruce lee, it is just we just don't know (he was influential though). Jackie Chan had courage which many people can't show any more which we could see from the bloopers in the end credits. He also did the best "fixed fight" of all time. I don't like fight scene with technology. He also had talents in other category like singing and directing. Jackie Chan isn't the best, isn't the greatest but he should be deserved to be the #1 on this list.
Jackie Chan may not be the best fighter ever, but his legacy in the film history as probably the best stuntman ever is absolute.
Would have loved to see 80s Jackie Chan against Bruce Lee both in their prime. Jackie in my eyes was underrated the things this man could do was groundbreaking people just don't take him seriously. He done all his own stunts and should be 2nd in this list.
Such a prolific body of amazing fight scenes and death defying stunts that dwarfs anyone else on the planet, not to mention this list. This guy is completely insane in the best ways.
Not the greatest fighter, however he definitely is the guy who has worked hard. He is massive and has accomplished a lot in his career despite going through illness etc. NCAA Champion, UFC heavyweight champion plus (despite scripted) is a Champion in professional wrestling. Headlined 4 out of the 6 highest PPV events, two of them are the top two. Plus moves around the cage/ring like a light heavyweight guy
Brock lesnar only lost in the ufc due to his battle with illness but he has squatted 1000 pounds deadlifted 900 and witness Kurt angle said he benched over 800 pounds! He ran a 50m dash in 6 seconds! He can truly beat anyone. if he gets a hold of you your done! The force he could hit you with or slam you with is tremendous
Are you outta your mind he is a beast incarnate. He conquered undertaker's streak. He also defeated many legends in WWE & UFC. He is more dangerous than ken shamrock also. He should be in no 3. After Scott Adkins.
He knows the meaning of "fighting". He is like the biggest monster with the twist of agility. He can fight and dance at the same time in the ring.
I saw that Bisping beat him in 2016, but it seems Bisping was on a really hot streak during that time. From what I can find in terms of historical success, Silva is consistently dominating for a fairly respectable reign.
Plus, looking at the guys ranked 1-8, this isn't a skill-based list, it's a fanboy/hollywood list, apparently. Pretty boys can look bad-ass, and they have endurance, too, for their career. Especially stunt men, they can take punches. But to win a fight? There's a very real element of application that fighting actors and stuntmen don't utilize the way professional fighters do, but of course, that's all just my opinion
Anderson Silva is labeled the best fighter that has ever lived. He has taken mma to the next level. Bruce Lee actually said Muhammad Ali could beat him, so to say he is better is just ridiculous. Anderson Silva has one hit KO'd people faster than Bruce Lee (Vitor Belfort). If somebody who is faster, stronger, more experienced, and better trained than Lee can't handle Silva, than why say Lee is any better? Ali was an incredible mix martial artist. Fedor and Chuck are jokes. Fedor is the laughing stock of MMA and even Bruce Lee told Chuck he would not be a great fighter. Lee, Jackie chan, Chuck Norris, and Jet Li all trained together. As to why they're even in this list is phenomenal. Shows how little people know. Might was well put the power rangers on here. Not hating on them as fighters, but to put them in this is list, or even consider it, is a joke. Without Lee, most fighters would not even be known. I could make a new sport, make it famous, then get whipped in whatever it is. ...more
I think Anderson Silver is easily the best or second best fighter who took step on this planet and even when he couldn't take a step because his major leg injury (Broke his leg in half so had to replace it with metal) he still came back to fight in the UFC. His first challenge after the injury was to fight Nic Diaz he still attempted to do it and he achieved, by beating Nic Diaz so if that isn't brave or strong I don't know what is call it what you want but first put yourself in his position would you do that after all that I sure wouldn't
The most versatile fighter we have ever seen compete on a main stage. His deadly combination of muay thai strikes, along with his skill in boxing, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and the other various forms of martial arts he excels at, have left his opponents completely embarassed in the octagon. He's the realest fighter, ahead of his time of doing things in professional fighting we haven't seen before. But, let's not forget who he looked up to as a kid and still does to this day; Bruce Lee
Jon Jones has more durability by a ten percent difference than Bruce lee had because he is so much heavier and trains really hard. Jones is a little faster than Lee at full potential he could run and dodge a slightly better since uses the treadmill and track a lot and is taller. Bruce Lee was stronger at his best he benched press more weight than Jon Jones can do and hits faster and harder. Bruce lee could only do the one inch punch. Jon Jones really does well in mix martial arts but Bruce lee knew a few more moves and techniques there athleticism and skills are equal matched.
Jon Jones is one of the best fighters in the UFC he knows Krav Maga, Jit zu, Kickboxing, Kung Fu and more. He has so much skill and experience. None of the fighters can beat him at full potential Anderson Silva is about the same as him but nobody has a higher ranking than him he weighs over 200 lbs. His strength and durability are good. He would be someone who can go bench press 500 lbs and hit with a fast 45-50 mph punch and kick and hit with a lot of psi. So he would be considered the best fist fighter ever also being the best ufc. its unlikely that any of the wrestlers or boxers would beat him. There are great boxers on this list who are amazing fighters but not knowing as much all around fighting makes it harder. All these fighting styles are important and useful. But the Ufc is the most realistic and useful compared to boxing and wrestling. UFC is still also not as real as street and army fighting. Army and street are not really sports its not about scoring points at all its ...more
Jon Jones has Ali's power and Bruce Lee's skill. Jones has more skills than Ali had since Jones is one of the best fighters in the ufc he is the most skillful all around fighter he knows mix martial arts too well. Jon Jones is as fast and about as strong and tough Ali weighed 235 lbs in his prime which is 30 lbs more than Jon Jones but that's not that big of a difference. Jon Jones is a better fighter than Bruce Lee also.
How can Brock Lesnar be above Jones. He is not any where close to Jon Jones. Brock got pummeled so hard by Cain and Cain was never even close to fighters like junior dos Santos and stipe Miocic at full potential. Jon Jones has a way higher ranking in the ufc he has more skills and more athleticism has too many advantages than Brock Lesnar.
He has more moves than what someone usually can teach you, and he only hits hard. Looks like he's the toughest fighter on this list to me. Not only really speed, but all his moves hit you to where you don't feel you can hit as hard back.
Tony Jaa is the greatest martial artist I have ever seen, all his moves in the movies were real and I like his style, he's not really good at acting but for me, those are not really matter to me, all I want to see is his fighting style.. the great of Tony Jaa!
Tony Jaa is absolutely rally strong, he beat it around 100 guards and the his top enemy - in the film Tony Jaa - go on YouTube if you want proves!
No way, Tony Jaa is way better than Jet li, chuck norris and Muhhamad put together. He should be tied with Lee, Tony Jaa is the definition of Kick Ass!
True MMA fans know who the goat truly is. Georges st Pierre was the best that ever was pound for pound in MMA. Casual fans prefer theatrics compared to skill so will look past any real martial artist and prefer actors who were good at some martial arts like Bruce Lee. Name me one of his conquests that prove he was so great? How about can crushers like Fedor or worse yet, can crushers who are one dimensional like Anderson silva. Ridiculous list. Georges St. Pierre was truly a level above everyone.
The fact that georges st pierre is not even in the top 3 let alone the top ten is beyond me. This guy didn't just beat his opponents he absolutely dominated them he and given the high caliber of opponents that he had faced it is remarkable how bad he made them look! (also this list is for best fighters not actors the inclusion of people like jet li on this list is baffling)
What a stupid list. GSP is the best mma fighter that ever lived but someone here has different opinion. To think that Bruce Lee was the best fighter is ridiculous. As soon as he was taken down he would be lost. This list must have been done by some kid as they would be the only ones stupid enough to think Bruce Lee was the best.
Has only lost twice in his UFC career. One from Matt Hughes who luckily caught an armbar and Matt Serra who only had the 1 in a million punchers chance... Which he god knows how used it. GSP's athletic ability and professional fight record already prove that he is a ferocious competitor. Too bad he tore his ACL
Scott Adkins is the most complete fighter in the world. He has skills, muscles and technique. I think He is the most complete fighter in the world now in the 21 century. Sriously, do you think Scott Adkins should be this far behind?
Scott Adkins should at least be in the number three spot in the world, he is also a real fighter. I agree with the people who think that he is one of the top ranked fighters.
He is the best fighter in the world he should be on the top of this list. He is very flexible and his techniques are mind blowing so he should at the number 1 position.
I love your act and I always watch your movie and I know you are the best fighter in the world.
I not agree that bruce lee is in the first place, you should be higher than him.
Ray was 85-0 in the amateur ranks, most of his pro defeats are past the time he "wanted retirement". During this 3 year retirement break, due to money issues, he was forced to return, and got 16 losses because of it. He WOULD have retired with 132 wins and 3 losses, those three losses were... 1) Jake Lamotta, who ray beat 4 times in a row after this defeat. 2) Randolph Turpin, after 90 straight wins Turpin beat Ray, BUT Ray won it back, with a clean KO. 3) Joey maxim, a way way heavier opponent who was actually losing but ray was overheating BADLY and retired. Even AFTER his 3 year break NO-ONE beat him twice in another 5 years in the ring AND AFTER his whole 19 losses ever (44 years old at second retirement) he NEVER got KO'd, only retired once against a light-heavyweight when he was middleweight and it was so hot the ref fainted AND RAY was ahead on all the judge cards!
Basically, if Ray fully retired when he wanted, he would be (including amateur record 85-0) 217 wins and 3 ...more
Arguably the greatest offensive boxer to have ever lived, and the sole reason for the existence of the term "pound for pound." Ruled over welterweight for about a decade before moving up to middleweight due to lack of competition, well past his prime. Should absolutely be in the top ten of this list. Sugar Ray at 26 and Mike Tyson at what, 7? Downright pathetic
Won 173 fights out of 200 with 108 knockouts. Defeated Jake LaMotta 5 times and was a welterweight and middle weight champion.
How the hell is this number 29? There is no justice.
His skill set is unrivaled.
Baddest man on the Planet.
He DESTROYED mcgregor, after making mcgregor look like a big wimp, Khabib should be higher in the list, he even had the guts to hop the cage and go after mcgregor's trainer.
He has no losses all the players after fight look tired but he is fresh even after the match. He is best in tactics at least he should be higher than mc gregor in rank
Khabib is the best
One of the best
Conor is a much better fighter than chuck norris and many other Hollywood actors stated in the top 30 list. I think he should be in the top 4.He has great accuracy and he's a complete fighter who covers many aspects of unarmed combat. Floyd and manny are the greatest 145 pound boxers in history but conor is a complete fighter who has dominated pure unarmed combat and so I believe he should be ahead of both of them.He also has awesome speed, precision, timing and reflexes. Most probably the greatest mma fighter in history.
Conor mcgregor is easily the biggest star in the UFC today, he should be number 1 on this list with Jon Jones a close second. Mcgregor is the only fighter in UFC history to hold 2 world championship belts at 2 different weights, there is also a good chance he could go up to welterweight and become the 3 weight world champ. This is not a serious list it is obviously made by people that know nothing about 1 on 1 unarmed combat, half the people are actors and the other half are boxers not fighters. There should be no boxer on this list apart from maybe Mike Tyson as he could knock u out with 1 punch on the way in, I laugh at Floyd Mayweather being on this list lol could u imagine him fighting Conor mcgregor in a real fight it would be over in seconds. Steven Segal that's so funny, just so people know Aikido don't work in a real fight! Out of our actors I have a huge amount of respect for Chuck Norris especially as he has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu which is worth more than all ...more
He should be at the top 10.. He is definitely better than Jet Li and all those Hollywood bull. Look at his stance, his balance, his accuracy. He is not like all those typical mma fighters. His style and his thinking is different.
At least Top 20.
When you think about Conor, love or hate him.. you know that he's a HUGE influential figure and day by day is comparative to the likes of the greats such as Muhammad Ali etc.
Even the UFC has figuratively embraced his icon, saying such as ''He is the Muhammad Ali of the UFC.''
Conor McGregor is still living in his prime and is no undoubtedly going to get better.. time is a factor in all of this and soon enough I'm sure he will make the Top 10 over the course of the history he writes.
in Conor McChrist we trust.
Greatest boxer of all time.. No ifs ands or buts.. BY FAR the most superior defensive boxer of all time.. Only ever been cleanly hit once.. Should be in the top 3 on this list... Its preposterious to have pacman lesnar and 22 of the other names above him on this list..
Floyd money is the best boxer in the world Marciano is the best to but Floyd has more money but if they fight it will be a tie.
Floyd is undefeated and how can he be below pac man as I'm typing this he just defeated him tonight.
Best pure fighter on this whole list all of the actors including sorry but Bruce Lee. Should not be on the list
I go with Chuck because he beat so many fighters I didn't like and he won the war against Randy Couture so why is Randy ahead of Chuck.
Chuck would bum rush any of the competitors and throw off any kind of martial arts defense
Chuck Liddell in his prime was the best mma fighter of all time the power the way he sucks guys in and then just ends it. I believe chuck liddel in his prime a long with fedor and bas rutten are the best mma fighters to have ever lived coture is over rated, silva is scared, henderson gets everything handed to him on a plate no way he beat edger, cruz isn't hungry, jones is the only decent champion in the ufc today yet look at all the people calling him out and a failed fighter in cheal sonnen gets the shot good on matchmakers you know the fans. And what about this nick diaz and a title shot id fight nick diaz his record is equal to bonnars ( who silva the greatest fighter on the planet my arse ) defeated in great fashion, but seriously what do they think will happen to diaz he's a crybaby little girl and should run home have a milo and go to bed by nine oclock, he's a sponge and all he will be good for against gsp will be absorbing punishment.
This man is an incredible human being let alone fighter. I've met him once and watched a number of his fights. He would dominate anyone on here! Hands down! There's a reason there are Chuck Norris chokes and not Royce Gracie jokes. Everyone knows he is no damn joke!
Considering his size and techniques he was probably one of the best fighters ever. He has submitted a number of good fighters 50 pounds heavier than himself.
One of the most influential and dominating fighters who kicked ass since the beginnings of the UFC.
Royce should be in the top 3.
He got the best chin in world just few improvement in abilities and cardio he is best heavy weight of today's generation. JDS Cigano Forever fan.
One of the best ever. Period. Didn't matter what style of fighting... Joe kicked A
Cleaned up HW UFC division by demolition. Record three times defended the HW title, stll the champ and I don't see anyone beating him until father time catches up with him. In a fight, without doubt he would beat any human being in history (Karelin would be his toughest test), thus the toughest fighter of all time.
