Dana should be ranked higher.

The man has done so much for MMA since 2001 and is very influential.

I think GSP's athleticism is influential in and of itself. The way GSP fights and trains I believe is going to change and is changing the whole sport of MMA. I could see how he makes the list simply for being a prominent figure of the sport he fights in. Do other fighters deserve to be there as well? Probably. MMA is perhaps the most influential economic business of the decade. I think both it, and its fighters deserve recognition.

Can you please explain why?

Not trying to start something or to get at you, I'm just curious.

You do realize that stating opinions without stating the reason for them is basically trolling, and will hardly be viewed as either intelligent or even relevant?

GSP is a great fighter and a good guy I like him allot but I feel like there should be more important people that should be on this list.

People that have had some real great impact on the world wether it be someone who solves the energy crises gets us out of the rescission does something to fight world hunger or sickness charity that helps impoverished nations. These are the people I want to see on this list not mma fighters.


I admit my post was a little hasty and extreme.

I like that Georges made the list but I definitely understand where your coming from here. I think that as this list is most likely intended as a form of entertainment though, it is very likely that entertainers make up a good portion of the list. Also considering that most people are influenced by people that do something interesting it is to be expected.

Sort of surprised to see that GSP was the one that made the list of all fighters but I think he's perfect for it. A stand up guy who really can do no wrong. Perfect representative for the sport IMO.

Dana really deserves his spot as well, the guy has done so much for his sport it really is mind-boggling. Love him or hate him the guy has done wonders for MMA as a whole, at least in the public eye.
