Agreed, the only person he hasn't fought would be Edgar.

He already beat Edgar

Agreed, but man I would love to see everyone of those on the list fight each other in their primes. How great would that be.

Lol it was a great fight. It happened shortly after Edgar lost his lightweight belt to Benson Henderson, then he went down to take a shot at Aldo's title

Cain Velasquez should be up there.



He beat Brock,JDS,Bigfoot, errbody.

And now he wants to fight Bones Jones.

He lost to himself, he hasn't fought in a year and a half and has only fought 2 fighters since the end of 2010. Definitely the most talented UFC heavyweight ever but his health and overall state of the HW division is killing his legacy at the moment.

I agree with both you.

IMO Cain is the best HW in UFC history but he still has to prove it. Based on skill alone he should be on the list, but he hasn't established his legacy yet. He will be discussed among the greats when he nears retirement, no doubt.

Bones vs. Cain would be LEGENDARY

debatable......

also, not sure how many people know this... Royce Gracie was actually the smaller and one of the lesser skilled of the Gracies. Rorion gracie created the UFC prove that Grace (not Brazilian) Jiu Jitsu was the best martial art, so he entered Royce to make a point rather than his better brothers.


that said..... Rickson Gracie is the best reprsentative in this debate from the Gracie family (pre-UFC though...)

Absolutely debatable, particularly because Royce had the benefit of wearing his gi, which considerably helped grip, and because no one really knew how to defend against those submissions at the time.
