there are alot of fighters we could argue that could be on the list, of those there I'd say gracie but I know about ju-jitsu long before I ever heard of UFC and the Gracies, though my choice on the List would have to be Royce though a couple of the others are just a hair behind.

Didn't even realize how old this thread was...

This is a tough one. I'd vote for Royce and Ken. At one point in time...Ken Shamrock was one bad ass mofo! One of the few fighters who beat Bas Rutten and he drew with Royce in their Super Fight rematch which the Gracies considered a loss.

If by greatest you mean most successful then Couture is the greatest of the ones you list. If you mean most influential, then it has to be Gracie. If not for him doing what Gracies do, then MMA would've take a helluva lot longer to evolve because nobody, or very few, fighters would work the ground game.
