Top Ten Best Fighters of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American martial artist, action film actor, martial arts instructor, philosopher, filmmaker, and the founder of Jeet Kune Do.

Bruce lee will always be considered the greatest fighter as it doesn't depend on whether he could be beat. If you could beat Lee in a fight that wont make you considered a better fighter historically. There were so many facets to bruce lee that puts him on the pedestal he's on. Whether it was him being the pioneer he was, the fighting genius he's considered to be and being such an original and one off singular talent who possessed so many aspects to being who he was.
You can't be considered a better fighter just because 46 years after his death you could beat him on any given day which can't be proved anyway.

Bruce lee was physically the greatest fighter the world has ever seen, he could do things nobody could do, he was a great giver of punishment and hard to nail and touch, a deadly combination.
But towards the end he was not a well man, he was fainting due to heat as he removed sweat glands. Ali might have beat him back then or whoever was the 2nd best fighter when Bruce Lee wasnt well, that would be your only chance to have a win over bruce lee.

Bruce seemed very confident of his ability to defeat anyone. And he's come across the who's who A to Z of the martial arts world.
So to come across so many martial artists, all styles and be confident you've not met the man to beat you, Bruce must have been something else.!
The self belief was not of this world not sure where he got that from?

Bruce Lee was the best fighter of his time, nobody can take that away from him. He can do no more than that. Who knows what had have become of him if he was born fifty years later in 1990, but I wouldn't bet against him.
Would you be anywhere near as good as him if you was from his time in his day is the question? I seriously doubt it.

2 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali (January 17th 1942 - June 3rd 2016) was an American former professional boxer . He was generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

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.

Bruce Lee was the best fighter of his day there's no escaping that fact. Ahead of his time, although bruce lee was a sick man towards the end I'm sure Ali could have tested the little guy.
Bruce Lee certainly never said Ali would beat him contrary to what has been said. Its basically a man Bruce Lee didn't like and the guy didn't like bruce lee, claimed Lee thought it after Lee died. But a common denominator is that no bruce lee student has ever claimed Lee didn't think he could beat Ali.
But Ali gets my vote as he is my favourite.

Skills are the most important for fighting since Muhammad Ali was 100 pounds heavier than Bruce Lee than he was a lot more durable which does make sense he did withstand more tons of force. Ali was at least 20 percent tougher. Bruce Lee was super strong and fast. Ali was faster than lee in running, jumping, dodging and hitting. Ali was stronger he could bench press 500 lbs and Bruce Lee benched 400 lbs. Bruce Lee was a lot more skillful Ali was an amazing fighter he was the best boxer but not the most skillful fighter if he knew mostly boxing. Ali he still had a great amount of fighting skill for a pro fighter and knew lots of different fighting styles. Bruce Lee didn’t fight as much in pro fights but Bruce Lee has way more skills than Ali since he was a all around fighter which is more useful in real fights. Bruce Lee probably would have had enough skill to counter Ali’s power they were both real amazing although Bruce Lee sure would have to get use to using his kickboxing and ...more

Muhammad Ali was super fast for a professional boxer for an athlete in general and for the average track athlete he was not fast for a pro track athlete but he probably could have ran 100 meters in under 11 seconds. He had a great combination of speed strength and durability and skills. Ali was 235 lbs and 6’3” that would make him about 21-22 percent fat because as a boxer he would be way too far from being skinny but far from being fat if he was in shape. The average zone is 18-25 for BMI on average some one that size would be overweight but Ali was so strong mostly muscle and power. Ali could bench press 400 lbs one of the greatest of all time.

3 Mike Tyson Michael Gerard Tyson (born June 30, 1966) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005. He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title at 20 years, four months and 22 days old.

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.

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.

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

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.

Well...This list is stupid. The fact than Fedor, Jon Jones, Mighty Mouse, BJ, GSP, Anderson Silva, Daniel Cormier, Kabib, Stipe (10th room for error) are not the top 10 but 4 actors, 2 boxers (great at their single art), Bruce Lee (respect to him) Bruce Lee's teacher whose experience was surpassed by Lee are shows how smooth brained the internet can truly be...

5 Chuck Norris Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris is an American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter. He was born in March 10, 1940, in Ryan, OK. He is famous for mostly starring in western and action movies.

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.

Let me just say this most of these people are actors for a reason they all can fight have speed but they are actors yes chuck Norris acted but he was the world champion for years and yes that is the same world Bruce lee lived in. Bruce lee was awesome but chuck Norris is the best on this list maybe of all time oh and these boxers come on no boxer could stand with a mixed martial artist duh and yes Bruce lee really trained created his own style but why no competitions because he was an actor lol

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.

6 Jet Li Li Lianjie, better known by his English stage name Jet Li, is a Chinese film actor, film producer, martial artist, and wushu champion who was born in Beijing.

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.

7 Yip Man

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!

Are you killing me! He is tge best of all time, we all know it, dammit! Stop making excuse is. He didn't fight to win a stupid trophy, he fought to save his life, to give to his family. Most fighters like Mike Tyson were trained, and lived like rich people compared to Ip Man. Ip Man was pored as heck! And ge still beat the best tge fighters. He had no muscle, he has no inspiration. He only had one choice between life and then. I am mean, what is easier? To fight knowing that if you lost they will not only kill you, but murder your family, your kids, your wife who has a baby coming! To know tgat your fighting for honor, for the whole China! I can't stand the fact that people underestimated him, all the other fighters should thank God, that Ip man was an old man, or dead when they were the best fighters. And as one's Yip Man said, not everyone can be #1 forever, but he is #1 and he will always be!

8 Jackie Chan Chan Kong-sang known professionally as Jackie Chan, is a Hong Kong martial artist, actor, film director, producer, stuntman, and singer. He is known for his acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, use of improvised weapons, and innovative stunts, which he typically performs himself, in the cinematic ...read more.

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.

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.

Jackie Chan is and always will be the master. The only reason most people don't think so is because all of his movies are funny and intended for family viewing.

9 Brock Lesnar Brock Edward Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler, professional American football player, and mixed martial artist who is currently signed to WWE.

Former NCAA Wrestling Champion
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion (despite having a disease that leaks fecal matter into the blood stream for the year he was fighting in UFC, which is described as extremely painful)
Former 4 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion (I might remind you that professional wrestling is scripted, not fake, these guys do get dropped on there head a lot, Lesnar even said that performing in WWE was harder than winning the UFC title)
Former NJPW World Heavyweight Champion (like WWE, but they hit each other harder to make it look realistic, there is a quote "If WWE is sports entertainment, NJPW is kicking someone in the face really hard" if you want proof, watch Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles)

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

He is a unstoppable force when at his prime especially if u annoy him for for e.g frank Mir I'm not saying he's the best but for his size 300 pounds he is as quick as a 150 pound man with the strength of a 500 pound man also his wrestling background helps him a lot in ufc plus I'm pretty sure he has a harder workout than most people on this list

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

10 Anderson Silva Anderson da Silva (born April 14, 1975) is a Brazilian professional mixed martial artist currently signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is a former UFC Middleweight Champion and had the longest title reign in UFC history at 2,457 days. This started in 2006 and ended in 2013 and included ...read more.

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

The Contenders

11 Jon Jones Jonathan Dwight "Jon" Jones is an American mixed martial artist and current interim UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.

Jon Jones is a lot better than most of the fighters since he is young he probably has more experience to learn but he is one of the best fighters ever in a fight that is set with being able to do anything accept use weapons and he still could do pretty well in a war using weapons. Jon Jones is the best ufc fighter, and he has a tremendous combination of strength, speed, and durability he can bench press 500 lbs, withstand a ton of force and run 20-25 mph. Bruce lee was about the same there but Jones and Lee would not be the in the same weight class but they could still fight but that is amazing that bruce lee weighs only 130 lbs and he still could out match other skillful pro fighters who were over 200 lbs.

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

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.

12 Tony Jaa

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!

He has ancient muay boran's techniques which makes him more powerful and sharp besides having a fast thinking against his opponents move.

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!

13 Georges St-Pierre Georges St-Pierre (born May 19, 1981) is a Canadian retired professional mixed martial artist. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters in mixed martial arts (MMA) history. He is a two-division champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) having won titles in the welterweight and ...read more.

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

14 Scott Adkins

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.

He should be top 3, and another guy called marko zaror who played a negative roll in the movie undisputed 3. please even elect him on the top, I saw some movie, he is really extraordinary.

15 Sugar Ray Robinson Sugar Ray Robinson was an American professional boxer who competed from 1940 to 1965. Robinson's performances in the welterweight and middleweight divisions prompted sportswriters to create "pound for pound" rankings, where they compared fighters regardless of weight.

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.

16 Deontay Wilder Deontay Leshun Wilder is an American professional boxer. He has held the WBC heavyweight title since 2015, and in doing so became the first American world heavyweight champion in nine years, which was the longest period of time in boxing history without an American heavyweight champion.

His skill set is unrivaled.

Baddest man on the Planet.

17 Khabib Nurmagomedov Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov (born 20 September 1988) is a Russian professional mixed martial artist of Avar ethnicity. Nurmagomedov is a two-time Combat Sambo World Champion and the reigning undisputed UFC Lightweight Champion. He currently holds the longest undefeated streak in MMA, with 27 ...read more.

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

Best Fighter of All Time in the history of UFC

Khabib won MacGregor now just the other day

18 Conor McGregor Conor Anthony McGregor (born 14 July 1988) is an Irish professional mixed martial artist and boxer. He is the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight and lightweight champion. ...read more.

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

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.

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.

Why the hell is this site not updated he is now the lightweight and featherweight champion first person ever to do with in history he is on the number one spot without a doubt.his only loss was when he had to eat lots to make 170 lbs and then did it again against the same man and won.
He is the worlds numer 1 without any questions. He is so big that he goes over to the opponents country and the opponents people want mcgregor to win.his last opponent who he beat via knock for lightweight tittle in new york says that he is bigger than babe ruth Muhammud ali bruce lee and any sports pearson in history books.so update this site people will think that its an old page and not bother to look on it.

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.

Best pure fighter on this whole list all of the actors including sorry but Bruce Lee. Should not be on the list

Floyd is undefeated and how can he be below pac man as I'm typing this he just defeated him tonight.

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.

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

In his prime definitely the best ufc fighter in the world

21 Royce Gracie

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.

He'd beat anyone else mentioned on this list - remarkable fighter

When world-cage fighting started, he took the world by storm. "

22 Junior dos Santos

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.

His chin is suspect that's it

Cigano is the best fighter theothers is not perfect like him. He is breave, strong and he has high tecnic. And he is not an actor

Accept he got knocked out by alistar overeem

23 Joe Lewis

One of the best ever. Period. Didn't matter what style of fighting... Joe kicked A

24 Stipe Miocic Stipe Miocic is an American mixed martial artist competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship where he is the current UFC World Heavyweight Champion.

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.

Best ever heavyweight champ and great human being

Stipe is actually croatian
