When it comes to fighting, no two MMA matches are ever the same. This is because the styles and tactics used in MMA come from a diverse range of combat sports and martial arts traditions and because of the sport's high level of entertainment value, MMA fights that are well publicised can attract as much media attention as major sporting events like football, horse racing, basketball etc which is an indication that MMA is gaining in popularity among sports fans.

The wide number of probable outcomes and betting alternatives available in each fight make beating MMA odds appear simple. Due to the combat sports aspect, MMA betting has more variables than boxing. You can now sign up to a wide range of online gaming casinos at and start placing bets in the hope of winning money. However, in this article we will honour three fantastic MMA fighters that have entered the cage. 

Jon Jones

UFC lightweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones is 23 years old, making him UFC's youngest-ever champion. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has several records, including the most title defences, the longest winning streak, the most submission victories, and the greatest number of victories.

With 28 fights under his belt, Jones has won 26 and lost one, with his lone defeat coming in a disputed disqualification loss to Matt Hamill. It includes the likes of Shogun Rua and Vitor Belfort as of March 2021, Jones is still competing, and if he wins the heavyweight championship, there will be no doubt that he is the best heavyweight fighter ever.

Khabib Nurmagomedov

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of MMA's greatest ever fighters thanks to his exceptional grappling and his extended reign in the category. In addition to winning all of his battles, he does so in a ruthless manner and with style.

"The Eagle" as he is often called that, has had a flawless MMA record when before he retired, having fought, and won all 29 of his matches. He's defeated the likes of Michael Johnson, Rafael Dos Anjos, and Conor McGregor, three of the sport's most formidable powers. Khabib is currently rated #1 in the UFC's pound-for-pound rankings as of April 2021.

Anderson Silva

When Anderson Silva was in the ring, he was a one-man wrecking crew. His 2,455-day stint as UFC champion was the longest in the organization's history. He won 16 straight fights during that time.

At the time of his retirement, "The Spider" as he was known as that, he had a 46-fight MMA record that included 34 victories, 11 defeats, and 1 no completion. He was able to defeat some of the top fighters in the world, including Vitor Belfort, Rich Franklin, and Dan Henderson. Fans loved Silva because he had one of the finest counterattacking games ever witnessed in the sport.
