I don't understand how people can say that Ken Shamrock is the greatest UFC fighter of all time when he has a UFC record of 26-10-2. If you give him the Gracie fight and the draw with severn he's still 28-10. There are guys like Chuck who have records of 18-3-0 and we aren't even talking about them.

Frankly, Ken shouldn't have come back to the UFC after fighting in the WWF. If he had retired, I would consider him one of the greatest fighters in the UFC, but because he doesn't know when to quit he continues to make himself look like an idiot. (He lost to Rich Franklin, who fights at 185, Ken weights 220 pounds without cutting weight)

There are guys like Royce Gracie who's legitimacy we might question, but we know that Ken's not legit anymore.

Best fighter in UFC history, the greatest there ever was: Royce Gracie.
