Ranking the best UFC Fighters ever
In the past decade, the popularity of Mixed Martial Arts and UFC have skyrocketed to epic proportions. People tend to look at the fighters currently on the roster and rank them as the best UFC Fighters ever.
However, UFC has a rich history filled with Superstars who may not be as popular among the current fans as they never saw them at their best. More often than not, many of these fighters are overlooked by new generation UFC fans when talking about the best UFC Fighters ever.
In this article, we will be taking a look back at the 25-year history of UFC, which is full to the brim with some of the best fighters to ever walk in the Octagon. We will be ranking the best UFC fighters ever in this article.
For this, we will be considering their fight records, style of fighting, drawing power, tenure in the UFC, and whether they were ever caught taking PED.

Without any further ado let's get into it. Here are the top ten fighters of the past 25 years in the UFC.
#10 Jon Jones
A fighter who would have been much higher on this list if it were not for his unfortunate history involving performance-enhancing drugs, Jon Jones is still one of the fighters who are yet to be properly defeated in his time with the UFC or even outside.
The one loss which acts as a blemish on his otherwise perfect record was one of the most controversial referee decisions due to a disqualification for strikes.
The attacking capabilities of this fighter do not really leave much space open for doubt. His style leaves all of his opponents scrambling for a way to get back into the fight, or to even secure a foothold while facing him.
Jones is now set to see if he can extend his record even further, facing Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232.
