Strictly in terms of who was the most dominant at their peak:

1 Royce Gracie
2 Chuck Liddell
3 Ken Shamrock
4 Mark Coleman
5 Sakuraba

Although there a ton of fighters almost/maybe retired who will take over this list (Hughes, Couture, Cro Cop, Wand, Big Nog, Fedor etc.)

The first all around MMA fighter. Hmmm...lets see who else is there. Marcos Ruas is dope.

It might be NICK DIAZ. Apparently he's going into boxing now.

Bas Rutten
Igor Vovchanchyn
Don Frye

Yes, he is that good that he is the best 5 retired MMA fighters. Bas is my all time favourite MMA fighter/person in the world. The man is SUCH a legend!! He could tell you enough stories to last a lifetime and if there is one man that I look up to in life.. It's EL GUAPO!!
