I wouldn't have put Dan Severn because both Shamrock and Gracie kicked his ass. These guys are all legends for different reasons:

Ken Shamrock- Considered the World's Most Dangerous Man and one of the most dominant heavyweights in MMA for 10 years.
Royce Gracie- The winner of the first 3 (or was it 4) UFCs and the greatest ground fighter of his generation. He has only lost twice in his MMA carreer.
Randy Couture- He's the natural and the coach of Team Quest, also the only fighter ever to be both the Heavyweight and Lightheavyweight champ.
Evan Tanner- Considered the greatest middleweight in the history of the UFC, he is the most dominant freestyle fighter in the history of MMA middleweights.
Tank Abbott- Legendary for his bad-ass persona and strength (once video-taped benchpressing 600 lbs, the video clip is below). He claimed a street-fighting record of 445-5, and I believe it.

I have to go with couture also. I am not sure, but I think he is the only man to hold heavyweight and light heavyweight titles.....really shows how versatile of a fighter to be able to match strength with the big boys, and match the speed of the light heavyweights.
