Top 10 Greatest MMA Lightweight Fighters Of All Time

Honoring mixed martial arts greatest lightweight division fighters.

The Top Ten

1 B.J. Penn

he's dead good at fighting!

2 Frank Edgar

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.

3 Rafael Dos Anjos Rafael Dos Anjos Rafael Souza dos Anjos is a Brazilian mixed martial artist in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's lightweight division and the current UFC Lightweight Champion.

7 Benson 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.
