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.
