Chunkyluv360 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Best UFC fighter has to be either Ortiz, Liddel, Shamrock, Couture, Royce Gracie or Matt Hughes.


Its not cause they always win its because they were UFC biggest stars and will always have a legacy fighting in the UFC.

The thread title says "Best UFC Fighters of ALL-TIME" so here we go:

Chuck Liddell - Most dominant LHW in UFC History, has avenged 2 out of 3 of his loses. The only lose left to avenge, didn't even happen in the octagon.

Matt Hughes - Most dominant WW in UFC History, he has beaten everyone who has stepped up to fight him. He is always a WW contender.

Randy Couture - Great fighter, possibly the greatest HW to step into the octagon. At 43 years old, he is the reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion.

thats a really ****ing tuff question and there is no 1 answer


Joe Rogan says Randy Couture is the greatest UFC Fighter EVA


I personally gotta go with Matt Hughes, hes just been soooooooooo dominant in the UFC and has stopped some of the best fighters the UFC has had to offer. hes da man in my books


Couture is a close 2nd for the obvious reasons , the guys just incredible, 40 yr old man beating down 27-34 yr old prime Vitor Belforts, Tito Ortiz's and Chuck Liddells, thats just crazy. 43 yrs old comes out of retirement and wins the HVW title of the world, did something Andrei ****ing Arlovski couldnt do 2x in a row... and AA is a monster

and Liddell is creeping up to Couture and Hughes at a very rapid speed lol, he just has to keep doing what hes doing and he'll be #1 in no TIME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hes avenges every 1 of his MMA losses , that will be just amazing (which he will)

And of course i gotta throw my boy Tito Ortiz out there, hes helped bring this sport out of the shadows and into the mainstream, he was the UFC @ one point and he s a tremendous fighter so he definately deserves his props as well, longest ever LHW Champion in History and #2 All time UFC Title defenses , and imo we havent even seen the best of Tito yet

Thumbs up Best Ever!!!

Royce Gracie - He made us all instant fans
Randy Couture - Embodies everything that this sport is
Chuck Liddell - The name says it all
Matt Hughes - Even Though I hate him he held it down for a good minute.

If GSP had about 4 more credible fights or title defenses then he would be up there too. Give him time though

On influnce, their time period of fighting and overall greatness.

1.)Royce Gracie - he gets alot of flack from most "smart" fans or Sakuraba marks, but he made mma in the us. Royce should that technique and skill are essiential to combat fighting, and won three of the first 4 UFCs. There would be no UFC if not for the Gracie family.

2.)Randy Couture - His record might not enforce this to new mma fans, but Randy always fought the best competition available to him. Nobody has won more titles, let alone in different weight classes. Nobdody adapted or changed like Couture (see Coleman I guess). And Nobody represented the UFC better or made mma look like a sport. Oh yeah he's still competing and is the heavyweight champion at 43.

3.)Ken Shamrock/Tito Ortiz - Why? Sure not the best ever to compete in the ufc but these guys made the show. UFC 40 was the first show in the states to feature betting lines and captured a whole new audience. Their feud was huge and I hate to say it, Ken's time in the wwf helped "Ultimate fighting" get into the mainstream. Both were also the best during their time period or near the best. Ken or Royce, Tito/Frank Shamrock or now Chuck Lidell. Ken also brought submission and shoot skills to the ufc. Remember "easier, because they don't know submissions"?

4.) Chuck Lidell - Much like Tito/Ken, he's the star of the UFC now. Any card with Chuck Lidell sells, even against Sobral (sorry ). He's their biggest star and his fued with Couture and the subsequent reality show launced the UFC into the mainstream even more than Ken/Tito. Chuck is also considered the #1 fighter in his division and is the most exciting for casual fans to watch.

5.) Matt Hughes - First off Hughes showed that smaller fighters can sell a card. His legacy has made stars out of BJ Penn and GSP. He was the top of the food chain in the UFC's best division, and defended his title more than anyone before him.

Honorable mentions:
Coleman - invented GnP to a degree, first hw champ
Frank Shamrock - As Damone mentioned earlier one of the first legit champs in the ufc and was the total package at the time.
Pat Miletich - First ww champ and a huge influence now as a trainer of several top fighters in the ufc
BJ Penn - he's BJ Penn, one of the most skilled fighters to ever enter the octagon
Rich Franklin - don't start. Rich was a great champ and may well be again. He showed everyone that an ordinary (sort of) guy can be a cage fighter, and represented the ufc very well in return. Leaving a job as a math teacher to be an mixed martial artist is beyond awesome

Other:
Phil Baroni - he's the man
Jo Son - I mean anyone who can take those shots in the pills.....
Andrei Arlovski - shows metrosexuals everywhere they can look tough or at least not fruity at some point in their lives
