Top 10 Greatest MMA Welterweight Fighters Of All Time

Honoring mixed martial art's greatest welterweight fighters.

The Top Ten

1 Georges St-Pierre Georges St-Pierre

Beat the best competition for years, and then comes off a super long layoff to finish the champion of a weight class above where he fought for all those years. Easily the best.

He beat the past, the present, and the future during his run in the UFC. 10/10. Top 3 greatest of ALL TIME - REGARDLESS OF WEIGHT CLASS.

Closest man to Anderson Silva in regards to the title of greatest fighter of all time. Easily the best welterweight ever.

Yup! #1

3 Robbie Lawler Robbie Lawler Robert Glenn "Robbie" Lawler is an American professional mixed martial artist and current UFC Welterweight Champion.

Should be #1. Down to make a fight as ugly as possible to win, a true warrior in the cage.

Best ever! Knockout machine

How can he be below fighters like Alves, Sherk and Fitch?

Should be hire than Jon Fitch, Diego Sanchez, Sean "the steroid head" Shark, and Anderson Silva is not a Welterweight dumbass

Always brings it when he Fights. Never boring, most entertaining fighter I've ever witnessed. His ability to throw combinations and varying speeds and power with great accuracy is second to none in the MMA welterweight division. Possibly the best we've ever seen.

Anderson is not a welterweight and diaz should be higher on this list.

Sean Sherk's real weakness is the fact that he has to take steroids.

He is definitely the best Welterweight.. Excluding GSP.. But he can be better than GSP.. Given the right push and the right time.
