Short and simple.


I'm looking for volunteers to list their Top 20 FAVORITE MMA Fighters of All Time (in order.) No ties, just a straight list 1 to 20 (blank template below). Going to collect and display results in a future post, article, or video.


The scoring system is: Your 1st fighter will be worth the most points, and your Top 10 choices will hold considerably more value than the remaining 10 slots.


No real prerequisites. Just looking for professional MMA fighters (Active or Retired/Inactive). But otherwise, your criteria defining your favorites is your own. There are no wrong answers. As long as they are a professional.


The only REQUIREMENT is that you list FIRST NAME and LAST NAME. (Nickname with it is fine too)


If anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to ask.


DEADLINE to post your rankings is February 22nd, 2022.


Thank you. :)

hd, you should submit yours. I don't see them influencing anybody else any more than any others. Just my 2 cents.

Logged and accounted for @Huiop532
Thank you for being apart of the survey! I appreciate the participation.

@mulefloyd I will post mine later on. I am worried about unintentional bias happening since I am the once giving the survey and I don't want any influence over the what the scoring would be over the survey results. But I will post mine as a separate video before knowing the results of the survey for fun. I appreciate that though. :)

@njrp77 Good start bruv. Just need about 15 more and I can throw your name in the survey video.

3-Michael "Professional *******" Bisping. Even his son roots against him.
4-Chael P. Sonnen. P stands for Perfection.

6-Ragin Al Iaquinta. He is emotional and sells houses.
7-Dan "The Hangman" Hooker. Best nickname in the business.
8- Colby" Triggered " Covington. He watches anime. I think.
9-Alistair Overeem. Great genetics.
10- Cyril Gane- Nice guy.
