Top 10 Greatest MMA Lightweight Fighters Of All Timeskullgangjewelz Honoring mixed martial arts greatest lightweight division fighters.
The Top Ten
he's dead good at fighting!
He was simply better than the others in his prime. He was exceptional on his back and had legitimate power.
Edgar beat him when he a little past his best. Towards the end of his career his penchant for fighting much bigger fighters and too frequent poor dicipline in camp. Caught up with him and shortened his prime.
But still the best ever at 155 in a division of killers.
doesn't get the respect he deserves.
"27-0 Finally after 26 fights he arguably lost a round and still went on to dominate and secure a 4th round neck crack against one of the best strikers in the game"
NO one does ground and pound better than khabib on planet earth
Khabib would destroy everyone else on this list
Khabib should be number 1 - he would destroy BJ even in his primeV 3 Comments
Edgar has been around for 10 years, has been the champion, and is still winning fights against young talent and tough veterans. His career has been and still is very successful. He has octagon time records and all sorts of others.
Edgar is the best lightweight champion I've ever seen. He beet penn twice when penn was at his best. Although I thought he lost hie first fight with henderson I believe he won the second not to mention he knocked maynard out
BJ at #1 and Frankie beat him for the title the first time, dominated him the second time, and damn near killed him the third time. He also beat Sherk who is #3 (God know why). Too small for the weight class yet managed to win the title in a division full of killers. Best lightweight hands down.
He beat Ben henderson
Should have never won against Edgar the first or second time. And he didn't beat Gilbert, the judges love this guy and gave him decisions he shouldn't have won.
Had 3 consecutive title defense same as BJ Penn.
Let me bang bro
clay is very smart and strong.
Cowboy is one of the most exciting fighters and has faced and beaten the best of the best
Should be top 10 in my opinion. Been the top in the weight class in numerous promotions, and he is a true light weight.
One of the most underrated fighters of all time.. He has never been Knocked out in the UFC and has the most submission wins and post match awards in history...Most of his losses come from the judges decision..Just tells you that he is tough as it comes..
Good Jiu Jitsu and has good technique with his boxing just like older brother Nick
