8 MMA fighters with over 100 fights in their careers
MMA isn't just like any other sport. It is the most physically demanding in the world that requires years of discipline, endurance, and generally, the cajones to even consider it as a profession.
Guys like James Toney, Kimbo Slice and CM Punk's excursion inside the Octagon is ample proof that MMA isn't anyone's cup of tea. While you have fighters like Moti Horenstein and John Allesio, who have just had a handful of fights in the UFC and have lost all of them, on the flipside, you got the workhorses who just lived to fight.
In a day and age when fighters stay inactive for years, these grizzled vets were addicted to the adrenaline rush that came along with brutality and pushed their bodies to unimaginable limits.
And seven of them managed to notch up over hundred fights in their careers.
#8 Yuki Kondo: 103
At 42 years old, Japenese Welterweight Yuki "Sora" Kondo has amassed 103 matches across promotions such as PRIDE, DEEP, Palace Fighting championships, Sengoku and not to forget, the UFC.
Kondo's most famous UFC bout was when he faced Tito Ortiz for the Light-heavyweight Championship and came up short after getting caught in a Cobra Choke. Apart from the three UFC fights under his belt, Sora has spent the majority of his career fighting for Pancrase, where he currently competes in the Welterweight division.
He holds the distinction of being a dual-weight class champion, having won the Pancrase Light Heavyweight and Middleweight titles on different occasions.
