The sport of mixed martial arts is literally based on hand-to-hand combat where the objective inside the cage is to either knock the consciousness out of your opponent or force your opponent to submit to an array of chokes or joint locks. It isn’t for the faint of heart and it takes a real driven competitor to train day-in and day-out to train for such a physically demanding sport.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the pinnacle of the sport and contains the most elite fighters in the world on their roster. Every UFC event hosts the world’s very best martial artists competing against one another. With the talent levels increasing continually at a high pace, it is rare to come across a fighter who can really embody the label of “dominant”. When a fighter is able to go on a lengthy winning streak, it is all that more impressive considering how much talent stands across the fighter every time they compete.
But these dominant fighters do exist, they are just very rare to come by in MMA and when they emerge they usually end up becoming true superstars for the UFC.
Paying homage to the ranking systems in place for the UFC and in other sports, let’s rank the most dominant fighters competing in MMA today in our MMA Power Rankings.
