There have been a lot of great fighters to step into the cage/ring, and secure their legacies. Here is my list of who I think the all time legends of the sport are. This is based on my opinion and i am not ranking them in a specific order.

Legends of the Sport:

Royce Gracie - 3 time UFC tournament champ. Great BJJ fighter and the first man to introduce BJJ to the american public.

Ken Shamrock - A true legend, wins over Bas Rutten(twice), Kimo(twice), Dan Severn, Mo Smith. One of the first ever in the UFC.

Bas Rutten - Insane Legend, amazing legend. He is the God of Pancrase! Former UFC HW champion, Wins over TK, Randleman, Frank Shamrock, Mezger

Frank Shamrock - His nickname is the Legend. Had not lost for almost ten years, he's beat Tito, he's beat Bas Rutten.

Kazushi Sakuraba - One of the best submission fighters in the history. Beat Royce gracie, beat Kevin Randleman, beat Rampage, and former UFC tournament champion.

Wanderlei Silva - Unbelievable legend and he's only 31 with a lot of fight left in him. He was the pride champion for so long. He destroyed fighters such as Rampage(twice), Sakuraba(3 times), Yuki Kondo, Fujita, Dan Henderson, Nakamura, Yoshida, and recently he beat Keith Jardine. Great legend with more great moments to come.


There are many more such as Dan Severn, Mark Coleman, Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Vitor Belfort, Tito Ortiz, Matt Hughes, BJ Penn, Mirko Cro Cop, FEDOR!! Nogueira, Pulver, Tank Abbott, Pedro Rizzo.

Not trying to hate on GSP, but he's not Anderson yet. Not from an accomplishment status. He's got to defend his title a few times at least.
