Top 10 Best Fighters of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee (November 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973) was a Hong Kong and American martial artist, martial arts instructor, actor, director, screenwriter, producer, and philosopher. He was the founder of Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid martial arts philosophy drawing from different combat disciplines that is often credited with paving the way for modern mixed martial arts (MMA). Lee is considered by critics, media, and other martial artists to be the most influential martial artist of all time and a pop culture icon of the 20th century, who bridged the gap between East and West. He is credited with promoting Hong Kong action cinema and helping to change the way Asians were presented in American films.

The most feared fighter of all time. Pro fighters mostly said he was the best of the time. Of course some were envious and didn't want to admit he was the best fighter theyd seen and didn't neccesarily want to sing it from the rooftops, particulaarly as he was an actor who belittled certain styles and arts and traditions.
And to add to that theres just one, even claimed to have got the better of him during sparring? THat is unlikely, as you wouldn't say it 50 years after the mans died. It would be best to say it when Bruce lee was alive humiliating everyone in sparring and developing an aura of invincibility.
Which proves the idea that bruce lee was the most feared, tip toed aroung fighter who ever lived.

I can't stand Bruce Lees fans, I respect Bruce Lee and all that and I get it he's a legend, icon and cult and all that. But his fans are kinda out there aren't they?
Yes, we know Bruce Lee was the best fighter of his time and nobody beats him. But today there are people id favour to beat Bruce lee if it's the 1972 version of bruces comes in a time machine.
But if Bruce lee was born in 1990 of course hed be beating a lot of people and creating a noise and waves.

So authentic when he talked abour realities of fighting, you got impression hed been there, done that and bought the t shirt.. You got the impression he could back up everything he said and people who met him tell you that's exactly the thing about him, he could actually back up what he said, he was authentic.
He talked about real fighting on a deeper level than anyone before or since. Anyone today who talks about real fighting, you get the impression they just copying what Bruce lee said.

The greatest fighter who ever lived. You can't compare time periods and everyone concludes if Bruce was alive today, hed still be the genius he was but with added bonus that training is so much easily accessible today, Bruce would be in his element.
Bruce Lee is timeless.

2 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. (January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer, activist, entertainer, poet, and philanthropist. Nicknamed The Greatest, he is widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sporting figures of the 20th century, and is frequently ranked as the best heavyweight boxer and greatest athlete of the century.

Hands down one of the top 5 boxers of all time and arguably is number 1. Unlike many of his contemporaries at heavyweight who relied on heavy knockout power, Ali had extremely slick footwork and outstanding quickness in both feet and hands and had a fantastic chin. On top of all this, he was endlessly marketable and charismatic. He had some of the best trash talk ever seen which made him an extremely compelling champion.

My vote goes to Ali, as he is my favourite fighter, although of course I know Bruce Lee was a better fighter, but I don't care.
Ali gets my vote.

Muhammad Ali is the greatest fighter of all time. Some say Bruce Lee could bring down Ali. Ali is 6'3 weighing 220lbs. Lee is 5'9 weighing 150lbs. If the fight would of happen between Ali and Lee. Ali would win by knockout. Ali would have been controlling the distance. A lot of people say that Lee could just kick Ali in the head, but with Ali's further reach and him being taller it would be very difficult for Lee to do that. Also, Lee wasnt fond of kicking bigger people in the head because his balance goes down giving Lee the disadvantage. Lee could try to get in to Ali, but Ali will beat him to the ground.

I know Bruce Lee said he'd kill Ali in a real fight when asked (Bruce Lee wouldn't voluntarily say it as he was classy and a gentleman) what would happen. And I know most think agree Bruce would best Ali and Bruce was unbeatable or something. But I'm sure Ali could give Bruce a good fight

3 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.

4 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 is hands down one of the top 5 boxers ever and arguably number 1. His power, speed, technique, and fight IQ were unparalleled. The only thing that brought him down was his personal problems outside of the ring. Inside of the ring, he was an artist painting masterpieces with his opponents blood, teeth and brain trama.

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.

5 Chuck Norris Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris (born March 10, 1940) is an American actor and martial artist. He is a black belt in Tang Soo Do, Brazilian jiu jitsu and judo. After serving in the United States Air Force, Norris won many martial arts championships and later founded his own discipline Chun Kuk Do. Shortly after, in Hollywood, Norris trained celebrities in martial arts. Norris went on to appear in a minor role in the spy film The Wrecking Crew (1969). Friend and fellow martial artist Bruce Lee invited him to play one of the main villains in Way of the Dragon (1972). While Norris continued acting, friend and student Steve McQueen suggested him to take it seriously. Norris took the starring role in the more.

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.

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.

Chuck Norris has done so much more as a martial artist than any other! He is also skilled in several different martial arts! Bruce Lee was good, but not even close to Chuck Norris!

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

Fedor is one of the top heavyweights of all time and arguably number 1. He was an undersized heavyweight who looked more like a factory worker than an elite heavyweight cage fighter. He is an extremely high-level and accomplished sambo fighter and judoka. Don't judge a book by it's cover. If you were to look at Fedor versus fighters such as Kevin Randleman and Mark Coleman, you would never put money on Fedor on looks alone. Most of his opponents looked like Greek Gods and he made them look like amatuers.

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.

7 Ip Man

To be honest with all of you Bruce Lee fans and Mike Tyson fans?

This man there?

He can crush and destroy all of these fighters in this list even Bruce Lee, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Chuck Norris and other fighters in this list, the only reason why he's not number one? Its because they don't know nothing about him, jealous of him or hatred on him and yous people should know this, he's the one that teaches Bruce Lee how to fight. He has pure wonderful heart, Chinese superhero, superhuman abilities and he has a powerful mind, so I consider him as a version of Yoda, Oogway, Albus Dumbledore and others like them. So I haven't seen anyone ever beats him cause he never gives up and you can't make him give up, good arms, bad arms, no arms, good legs, bad legs, no legs? He still can beat you with his head and on his wheelchair


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.

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 world. He has trained in Wushu or Kung Fu and Hapkido, and has been acting since the 1960s, appearing in over 150 films.

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 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 a UFC record 16 consecutive victories in that span. UFC president Dana White, UFC commentator Joe Rogan, and numerous mixed martial arts (MMA) analysts have named Silva the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time.

Anderson Silva is one of the greatest fighters of all time and hands down the best middleweight with Israel Adesanya being a close second. Silva was unmatched in fight IQ, quickness and creativity in the ring. He was a master Muay Thai fighter with a black belt in Brazilian Jui Jitsu and frequently ended fights quickly with those two arts.

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

10 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.

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

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

Are you outta your mind he is a beast incarnate. He conquered undertaker's streak. He also defeated many legends in WWE & UFC. He is more dangerous than ken shamrock also. He should be in no 3. After Scott Adkins.

He knows the meaning of "fighting". He is like the biggest monster with the twist of agility. He can fight and dance at the same time in the ring.

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

Jon Jones has never lost a fight. He has one disqualification on his record due to him accidentally breaking the 12-6 elbow rule which is an idiotic rule in the first place. He was the youngest ever UFC champion defended his light heavyweight title 14 times and just won the heavyweight championship in an extremely dominant fashion against an extremely high level kickboxer who also happens to be far and away the largest person Jones has ever faced.

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

Jon Jones has Ali's power and Bruce Lee's skill. Jones has more skills than Ali had since Jones is one of the best fighters in the ufc he is the most skillful all around fighter he knows mix martial arts too well. Jon Jones is as fast and about as strong and tough Ali weighed 235 lbs in his prime which is 30 lbs more than Jon Jones but that's not that big of a difference. Jon Jones is a better fighter than Bruce Lee also.

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!

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!

No way, Tony Jaa is way better than Jet li, chuck norris and Muhhamad put together. He should be tied with Lee, Tony Jaa is the definition of Kick Ass!

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 middleweight divisions.

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.

I love your act and I always watch your movie and I know you are the best fighter in the world.
I not agree that bruce lee is in the first place, you should be higher than him.

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 wins, and remains undefeated in professional MMA. Hailing from Russia's Dagestan region, he is the first Russian and the first Muslim to win a UFC title. His headline bout with Conor McGregor at UFC 229 drew 2.4 million pay-per-view buys, the most ever for an MMA event.

Khabib dominated his opponents like no other. He is arguably the best grappler to ever grace the octagon and holds Master of Sport titles and multiple world championships in Combat Sambo. Khabib had under-rated stand up skills and an extremely high level grappling game.

One of the most humble and respectable fighters, especially with his faith in his beliefs his mindset. He trains a lot physically but mentally he is a true fighter

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

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. 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.

He should be at the top 10.. He is definitely better than Jet Li and all those Hollywood bull. Look at his stance, his balance, his accuracy. He is not like all those typical mma fighters. His style and his thinking is different.

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.

This guy would have ended Bruce Lee in under one round in an MMA fight. Don't know why he's so low at the time of me posting this. I mean 30th? What?!

19 Floyd Mayweather Jr. Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. is an American former professional boxer and current boxing promoter. "Pretty boy" Floyd or "Money" Mayweather is widely considered to be one of the greatest if not the greatest boxer in boxing history. Floyd Mayweather has had success not only inside the ring, but outside as a worthy businessman. Mayweather has had some of the largest if not the largest box office ratings in HBO history and has rightfully owned the sport of boxing for more than a decade.

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.

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

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

20 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.

21 Chuck Liddell Charles David "Chuck" Liddell (born December 17, 1969) is an American mixed martial artist and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. He has an extensive striking background in Kempo, Karate, and Kickboxing, as well as a grappling background in collegiate wrestling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. A professional competitor from 1998 until 2010, Liddell had 23 fights in the UFC; along with Randy Couture, he is widely credited with bringing MMA into the mainstream of American sports and entertainment. On July 10, 2009, he was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.

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

22 Royce Gracie

This man is an incredible human being let alone fighter. I've met him once and watched a number of his fights. He would dominate anyone on here! Hands down! There's a reason there are Chuck Norris chokes and not Royce Gracie jokes. Everyone knows he is no damn joke!

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.

Royce should be in the top 3.

23 Manny Pacquiao Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao is a Filipino professional boxer and politician, currently serving as a Senator of the Philippines. He currently ranks #4 in BoxRec's ranking of the greatest pound for pound boxers of all time.

Woah, Pacman should be at the top of the list! Number one, I mean. He is our National Hero from the year of His birthday till today. We, Filipinos love him so well that we gave him a lot of jobs to do. He is a boxer, a promoter, a congressman/statesman, a Wall In Their Family's House, a supplier of goods in General Santos City, a vendor of peanuts before, a good, religious guy, a loyal person, a rich fella, an honest human, a guy with strong passions, a persevered Filipino, and a nice guy to have a match with. Wohoo! Pacquaio #1! Hail on you. IDOL!

He should be number 2 with his idol bruce lee in number 1. He idolized bruce lee and no doubt he is the GOAT of boxing. Beating young undefeated champions at age 41 and that's really ridiculous to imagine an old guy beating young bloods. Manny is the true definition of GOAT. 8 division world champion.

WOHHOO! My Idol in our Martial Arts/Boxing is Manny Pacquiao because of his very fast movement, very fast and very strong punch combinations. Unlike other martial artist they don't use like Manny skills, that why cause I like Manny than other martial artist, he is my ever idol in martial arts and also Donnie Yen because they have a similarities in Manny Pacquia... !

He is the fastest boxer of all time. He southpaw stance knocks his opponents out with his powerful left hand and lightning speed. His opponents sometimes wonders if he got more than two arms.

24 Bolo Yeung
25 Joe Lewis

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