Top Five Undefeated MMA Fighters

Tim will be back on the job next Thursday with his welterweight rankings. In the mean time, I thought I would take the opportunity to show the top five currently undefeated fighters across all weight classes. It is next to impossible to have an undefeated career in Mixed Martial Arts so I thought I would share who, for now, is on the way to do it.

Middleweight Rankings

The Middleweight division has long been one of my personal favorites. The fighters have the speed of the lower weight classes to go along with the power of the big guys. The fluidity of their striking, the power of their takedown, and the slickness of their submission game is exactly what makes the MW division so great. These 13 fighters all have the opportunity for that greatness.

Light Heavyweight Rankings

The LHW division has long been the glamour MMA division. Some of the sports biggest rivalries and most prolific fights have come from Light Heavyweight. Even the fight known for causing the UFC inspiration, Forrest Griffin v.s. Stephan Bonnar, was fought at Light Heavyweight.

Heavyweight Rankings

There is nothing bigger in Mixed Martial Arts than a Heavyweight fight.

Three Lightweight Prospects to Keep Your Eye On

The lightweight division has always been heralded as the top division in terms of talent. We see this among the prospects. There are always plenty of up and coming fighters in the 155 pound division. We could probably list ten to fifteen elite lightweight prospects. However, there are three that stand out to me. These three fighters have the potential not just to make it to the UFC, but to be among the elite in the UFC.

Watch For These Female Strawweight Prospects

The growth in popularity of women's MMA has really been interesting to watch. Ronda Rosuey has become a star. Women int he UFC have become a must watch. In fact, it has been such a hit that the UFC has created a second women's MMA division.

Searching For Heavyweight Prospects

In MMA, the heavier weight classes seem to be bigger draws than the lighter weight classes. I guess fans just prefer seeing two large men throwing haymakers.
