I know there can be so may more added to this list if so post them
Fedors Record was amazing
Cro Cop's 7 fight win streak after being KO'd by Randleman was good too, Kanehara, Oyama, Aleks Emelianenko, Josh Barnett, Randleman and Coleman, all before losing to Fedor.
Thats an impressive win streak, thats some tough competition.
All of those streaks are impressive.
Like Fedor is self-explanatory. Silva and Liddell have a smaller win streak but they usually finish their opponents via brutal (T)KO. Hell, St. Pierre only has a 6-win streak, but he fought some really big studs in those 6 fights (e.g. Trigg, Sherk, Hughes, Penn).
I also tried to keep in mind the talent of the compitetion yah that is one tough thing to pick i guess i would have to say that shogun due to the talent level that he fought against i believe all were in the top 10 in there division. Thanks for the crocop info that deserves to be up there as well.
Gomi and Melendez. I'm hoping Melendez gets a shot at Gomi's belt in the not too distant future.
Rampage should at least get a mention if Lidell gets mentioned for beating the same ppl
Satake. Grey. Igor Vovchanchyn. Kevin Randleman. Mikhail Illoukhine, Bustamante, And Lidell
Before Losing to Wandy on the same day.
damn it, please tell me you copy and pasted that
That's a really impressive. . . essay, I guess you'd call it. Did you copy and paste all that or did you do it yourself. Nevermind, it's hardly important.
I have to say, considering recent events, Fedor's streak is just all the more impressive. Consistency is such a hard thing to achieve in this sport.
To add to it, Big Nog had a 13 (I think) win streak before meeting Fedor for the first time. I don't think anyone else mentioned that.
Fedor, most definitely.
Gomi had a real good streak, too. That Pulver/Gomi fight was sweet. Looked like a boxing match with a few kicks and knees.
Great post. Wandy 16 wins, finishing 14 of them is amazing
+1 in "Full Mount"
Royce Gracie going thru everybody at UFC 1 and 2, how can you forget that.
Say what you want, that's impressive, and it's something no one else will ever be able to do!!
Unfortunatly non of that was copied and pasted i have been having this on going debate with some of my friends
Here is Big Nog's streak
Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira 13 str. 8/23/00 - 12/23/02 with 11/13 fights finished with victories over Hendo, Schlit, Sapp, Inoue, Herring, Coleman, Goodridge
That really is an impressive list of names there fedor is always stealing Big Nogs Thunder
im kind of disappointed there hasnt been much response to this thread yet people blow up some outragiously silly threads
Denis Kang's straight win record is pretty impressive but noone can touch fedor's
I would say Fedor but a closse second is GSP and his 6 fight win streak. He fought the best the UFC had to offer that is by far one of the toughest roads back to a title shot and he made it and won it.
Travis Fulton, 16 fight winning streak...haha...link

Travis Fulton, 16 fight winning streak...haha...
I also could have put Rashad and a bunch of other fighters hey travis fulton has 225 MMa fights impressive but in that streak is there one big name????
again the question that i pose is what streak is the best overall (except Fedor) and the best in each weight class
Igor had a great run to start his career... If you don't count the "chin in eye" sub (just for the sake of arguement) he really didn't suffer a loss from 95 to 2000... Not bad if you ask me...
Fedor's is amazing and the best overall IMO. I also think Randy's 3 fight streak of Chuck, Tito, Vitor was awesome too. No I don't count the glove in the eyelid fight as a loss, should have been a NC, just like Fedor TK 1 should have been IMO.
Fedor's streak 24 (& Counting),
Rashad's 12 fight Undefeated Streak (& Counting),
Diego's 17 Before Koscheck,
and Mirko's 7 Streak after Loss to Kevin.
shoguns look pretty damn impressive. Look at the competition in that streak.
I think Fedor's is obviously the most impressive.
Honestly it's a bummer we haven't been able to realize the greatness of Urijah Faber's streak. The kid is an absolute animal and workaholic. Just because the weight class is so small I think it doesn't get as much credit. However, anybody who was a wrestler or watches that kind of stuff knows that some of the most brutal competition happens down in the buck o' somethin weight classes.
