Best UFC Fighters of All Time
The Top Ten Best UFC Fighters of All Time
Gotta go with Anderson Silva, too obvious. Fighting him must be like striking at smoke. Smooth and elusive movement, ridiculously accurate strikes, and the Muay Thai clinch... Vicious. Definitely the best - zacenroe86
No contest, 300 Spartans couldn't take him, chuck Norris could be multiplied a million times, and all those copies could fight Silva at the same time, and Silva would decimate them.
Yes, he lost now. But, don't judge him by those few losses. His achievements and records were accomplished in the most difficult fighting organization in the world, known as the UFC. He is the best.
liddell, coture and gracie are my favorite but how can you even argue who is the best silva's standup is on a different level then every other fighters - spiralout
Came back after a 4 year hiatus to choke out Bisping and become a two division champion. Has convincingly avenged his only two losses, completely dominating both Serra and Hughes (twice) in the rematches. Only clean fighter in the GOAT conversation (alongside Fedor). Dominated a division stacked with talent (Don't forget that most adult males would fall in the welterweight division, which means that fighters who make it to UFC overcome the higher level if competition.). Only fighter who has won 30+ consecutive rounds. Survived a juiced up Hendricks.
People might criticize him for the number of fights he won by decision, but don't forget that this sport is not about who does the more physical damage, it's about who displays more dominance in terms of skill and endurance.
No doubt that he is the best, he fought the most dangerous fighters and came out smiling. He mastered many styles of martial arts, he is the most respectful fighter in UFC and he is the most consistent fighter of all time. He is a TRUE martial artist with a big heart. Even though he fought against animals like Hendricks and Diaz, he never lost his soul...
Over the years I've learned a lot from him mentally and physically and I wish him all the best in the future.
Like me started by saying Anderson Silva number 1? Really? He's a good fighter, but he's fights are so boring. Georges St-Pierre may not be as talented as Silva but his fights are way more interesting and it was him who first got my into MMA.
I think GSP has shown more heart and integrity in the UFC then most any other fighter. He is one of the hardest training fighters and has excelled in skill beyond almost anyone he comes up against - (his constant wins testify to his). I also think GSP has what it takes to beat Anderson Silva if they can ever make the match up happen!
He is BY far the greatest Silva should be 3 gsp 2 Jones 1 also he never really lost
Bones jones is crazy he is only 24 and already the ufc light heavyweight champion. He only has one loss and that was a dq which isn't really a loss but anyways he is beast and you got to admit it.
He is way better than brock lesnar he is tall strong and fast probably the most feared fighter in the octagon he no doubt the best his elbows is lime getting stabbed by a knife he is the best.
He is murderer powerful man sharpest elbows in hands can kill any best fighter in the world. Every fight he shown different skills.
Chuck Liddell and Anderson Silva are the only two who seem interesting to watch. Chuck is a very stronger hitter than anyone else in the UFC and has some good kicks too. Chuck can dominate in the octagon and knock somebody out cold and had a cool nickname as the Iceman the only name that's as cool as that is Silva's the Spider. Chuck I think at least is at least number 2 if not 1 in my opinion. Great fighter with much power he gets my vote.
Chuck Liddell is fast, agile, has all the knowledge his upcoming
Opponents he can throw a had punch and if you get court you are in
Trouble, he has his good moments and some bad he can fight on the ground and standing up he plays mind games and gets in to your head
If he loses he honors the winner and is a good sports man Vote: chuck liddell
OH YEAH THE ICEMAN COME ON HOMIES REALLY WHY WOULD YOU GIVE ANDERSON SILVA A HIGHER MARK THAN LIDDELL COME ON THIS IS SILVIA VS LIDDELL MANKE THE CHOICE.
Finished fights in a devastating fashion. St. Pierre is great, but nowhere near as exciting as Liddell.
Sorry to break it to all of you sensitive Fanboys and girls but Conor doesn't belong in the top 30. He never defended any belt he's ever had even when he was in cage warriors. This list is clearly based by popularity. - Sabbath
Conor McGregor is a person who inspires many people around the world with his hard work ethic and determination, he has worked very hard to get to where he is at today, and when that left hand hits people they go to sleep, and that is the reason no one in the ufc can hang with him, he is the greatest fighter of all time
Greatest fighter of all time? Good one. He isn't even the best of his era - Sabbath
Overrated - Joeljohns249
Good striker (was able to knockout Aldo in 13 seconds) but that's about it. It's apparent he doesn't train in other areas of fighting, like the clinch, wrestling, or submission defense, Nate proved that.
He has not only shown good performance in WWE he has shown a good performance in ufc Also he has beaten superstars like randy orton and the undertaker he is a mixed martial artist wrestler as well as American football player he should be number1
He is a monster weighing 265 lbs you can tell Brock is just stronger than everyone in ufc
He may not be the best UFC fighter...but he is definitely THE BADDEST MAN ON THE PLANET...
The beast and he is not only strong but also so speed for size and so talented and he is one who defeated shane and he also randy
This guy made what Connor McGregor did he was the first person to conquer 2 weigh classes he has a record of winning the heavyweight championship 3 times and is tied with Jon Jones for the most Light heavyweight championships with 2 (3 if you include the fact that both have one interim title each and are the only light heavyweights to hold the interim title) and the uff 13 tournament winner.He is the only UFC hall of fame inductee to win a championship after being inducted. He is also the oldest title holder in MMA history from 43 until 45 and won his last fight against boxer James Toney as the oldest fighter to win a fight at 47.
This guy has won the most championships and was the first person to conquer 2 weight classes he won the heavyweight title at 49 he is the reason Connor Mcgregor is extremely overrated
Bro he won titles in 2 weight classes and held the heavyweight title till he was almost 50, easily top 5 of all time
Randy couture is the best ever in the ufc because the ufc tried to get rid of him but couldn't do so he went and won the lighthaveywight title and after he lost it to the ice man and went and won the heavyweight title at the good old age of 46 my hero
No pound-for-pound ranking discussion.
Royce would fight any guy no matter how bigger, heavier and stronger he was.
If he was contemporary to Fedor, I bet he would challenge him without a doubt.
I have absolutely no clue how Conor is even ranked in the top 20. - Sabbath
Gracie fought and beat bigger fighters them him. He could submit anyone. He is a human anaconda. - Sabbath
he is one of the pioneer of UFC and one of the best fighter i've ever seen in the octagon
won a round against layoto, beat 2 gracies, beat matt huges when every one tought he was unstopable, put an ass whoping on gsp in 1st fight, he also put an ass whopin on din thomas, kenny florian, carl uno, dieago shanchez, jens polver, takanori ghomi, joe daddy stevason
The BJ Penn that beat Joe Stevenson and Diego Sanchez is without a doubt the best LW ever. He did overstay his welcome, but that does not take away from the greatness that is The Prodigy.
No way penn should be ranked..but Showtime isn't..
How Hughes isn't top 5 at least is absolutely bizarre! He's amazing and one of the longest reigning champion! How is lesnar 6! He is not good at all! But that's my opinion
Matt Hughes is pound for pound the strongest UFC fighter ever. He literally man handle his competitors. UFC puts him at number 4 and I think that's a good spot for him.
It's funny how Hughes had defeated two of the people ahead of him on this list. But apparently he is lower then them lol
Hughes is the most important welterweight - Sabbath
Swift and accurate like an eagle...
He is the reigning undefeated and undisputed lightweight champ... He should be#1... 28-0... The Eagle landed and ate up the chicken and destroyed the diamond...
Khabib the eagle. 27-0. Best in the world
The guy is a beast how is he so low in the list
Soon enough everyone will agree just wait and watch
Dude the world's most dangerous man he was at the first ufc event
Best ufc fighter ever
He was the world's most dangerous man
Should be higher, just because he's small doesn't mean he can't fight, in my opinion he should in top 10 greatest fighters of all time.
Number 1 pound for pound why is he lower than mcgregor?
Finally the all the time best. Just like its suppose to be, the only fighter who is amazing in Everything.
Forrest griffin is a true definition of a great ufc fighter he have fighting moves that most ufc fighters can not compete with he is a great ufc fighter and he is good looking with his supermodel hair hairy body, and goofy personality and I just think forrest griffin is one of the most greatest fighters and he can actually fight and hold his own inside the ring and never get tired he is a and born a fighter.
If this list was for personality and heart, he is number 1
This Guy needs to get higher
Forrest was never a great fighter in my opinion
He would be ranked higher that that red neck Brock he whooped his ass
Velasquez should be number 1. He would destroy Anderson:Pierre:Jones
One of the strongest hitters in UFC and mma history.
I've got a nick name for him: The Mexican Nightmare
Come on lets get him to #1 he is the best and there is no denying that!
Yo I don't even watch mma at all but I know for sure rampage Jackson is a BEAST
MINT! loved the way he put silva away
He beat everyone that ever stepped in fhe octagon with him except for Jon "The Juicer" Jones.
Currently champion of light heavyweight and heavyweight! Best only one loss.
Why is he 17th come on people he should be at least top ten
Great both outside and inside the ring
He grew up in Stockton California you gotta be tough to live there
Sad that he doesn't get the respect he deserves
The toughest guy in the business absolutely NO QUIT in him
Where you at George!
How could no one put this guy on the list! He was one of he first to go in the ufc hof. he went toe to toe with royce gracie
Should be in the top ten for her ass alone
She is an amazing fighter. BJJ blackbelt and heart of a champion. I would put her at number one but she definitely should be top ten pound for pound. - maddermax77
Claudia is great but the queen of strawweights is Joanna Jedrzejczyk - Sabbath
Would destroy the lil leprechaun in a rematch
The GREATEST OF ALL TIME.
Look at his resume.
He has the best technique and the best cardio of all the fighters
No one and noo one beats lyoto
Greatest two dimensional fighter of all time, even though he hasn't had so many victories in the ufc he is a warrior
Nate and nick are so underrated they are both some of the best fighters of all time and should have won more times than they did but the referees are always stupid
Should be higher than McGregor he beat him once and should of beat McGregor again
He is the best of all time
One of the striker in mma, even Connor can't knock him out,the only guy who can beat Khabib
How is this guy not in top 10?
Badass figher till last sec
Extremely intelligent with great skill and ferocious knockout power
One of the best fighter in the UFC history
So rampage is higher than rashad when rashad beat him? Brock is in the top 10... ok clearly unintelligent people make up for most of the voters
The big-heart of UFC. The record-setter. The Knock-Out Specialist. JDS.
Never even fought in the UFC & probably never will at this age. What is he doing up so high at #34? - Joeljohns249
Is this some kind of joke... 😂
He is dominate in the octagon and has best ground game out of anyone ever - KOBEBLOWS
The best elf I have ever seen fight.
This girl is no joke in the cage. She beat 98% of her opponents in the first round. No women will accomplish what she has already achieved. People make fun of her but they would never say anything to her face - Sabbath
She might be the best female mma artist of all time
Why you not com WWE your nica look so hot ronda r
What this guy is so underrated! He is a killing machine. You should watch him fighting Nick Diaz!
King Of Walk Off KO!
Ortiz vs Shamrock, Ortiz hits and I'm sorry you're out. Ortiz should be in the top 5, and as a matter of fact where is Overeem?
Good in his prime but holds as 15-11-1 ZUFFA record plus is 3-8-1 in last 12 fights
He's "The Phenom." He's one of the best UFC fighters of all time. He beat the current champion Luke Rockhold by a kick to the jaw, it was brutal. He's also a former Light Heavyweight Champion. To summarize him up he's more sticked onto boxing, Jiu jitsu, and explosive striking. He's a legend.
Should be higher Jon Jones is number 1 for me
Hendo should be higher. One punch knockout power and always willing to fight anyone and mix it up! Even when mixing it up means he or his opponent is going to go to sleep! I respect his heart...it is what makes me love UFC. Nobody wants to see some guy run and play defense; take notes Floyd Mayweather. Fortunately we will never have to watch that one dimensional game in the UFC because he would never make it there anyway!
I do like her, but she has never been the same since she ran into Ronda Rousey and got arm barred in 14 seconds!
How is Claudia above her? Her looks I take it. - Sabbath
She's the queen of women's strawweights and arguably the queen of mma right now - Sabbath
Are you fool frank mir defeated Brock Lesnar Brock Lesnar
My favorite ufc fighter
Best submissions ever!
Mir is n1
Not the best but needs higher
Got revenge on his 1 loss twice beet Demetrious Johnson and loads of other great fighters and he is the bantamweight champions
