Top 10 Greatest MMA Heavyweight Fighters of All Time

Honoring Mixed Martial Art's greatest Heavyweight division fighter's.

The Top Ten

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

his simply is the best heavy weight of all time and the best fighter of all time. Actions speak louder than words watch fedors fights

Never one mistake made that cost him a fight. Everyone else on this list has lost... some to fighters who weren't that good. Has faced the top ranked fighters consistently.

The only fight he lost was his first ever fight. But then beat him later on in his Career. I am a MMA FANATIC and ABSOLUTELY NO ONE can beat him. His record is 47-0 and he is still fighting on Strikeforce... Stop hatinG!

The greatest heavyweight ever

4 Randy Couture Randy Couture Randall "Randy" Duane Couture is an American actor, retired mixed martial artist and former collegiate and Greco-Roman wrestler.

he's one of the best hearted fighters on the planet the guys got so much respect to add to his amazing fight resume

Has held multiple titles in the UFC, and has been around, and still is. - skullgangjewelz

5 Cain Velasquez Cain Velasquez

Injuries and long layoffs have played a factor in Cain's fighting career. If it weren't for those things happening to him, Cain would have easily already established himself as the greatest heavyweight fighter in MMA. He might even be the best MMA fighter ever.

No one can beat Cain in his proper condition... NO ONE!

Funny how Brock Lesnar is ahead of Cain in this list.

Greatest highlights of all time,as far as heavyweight,he is a complete fighter he will kick your ass in so many ways,goo cain! comeback kid!

He fought so many wars, and was the only fighter to hold both pride and ufc heavyweight titles, enough said

Beaten everybody, and is the only to hold Heavyweight titles in Pride & UFC. - skullgangjewelz

Minotauro is a legend

In no way is Big Nog number four. He is indubitably the second best HW of all time. Period.

7 Fabricio Werdum Fabricio Werdum

Should be #1. Beat Fedor and Cain Velasquez and at the moment is the UFC heavyweight champion.

Why isn't he number one? Schooled Cain Velasquez for the heavyweight title and made Fedor's overrated ass submit!

This list is ridiculous. Werdum and Velasquez are the best, hands down

He have lost his figth with stipe miocic and that's because he rushed in,but if u watch the other figths I will not be surprised if u came back here and voted for him.
