Some MMA fighters have power in their hands. Others have powerful takedowns or submissions. Still others have strong wills, refusing to lose or break in the cage.
And then there are some who possess a power transcending even these formidable strengths. These are powerful men indeed, members of an elite cadre in the mixed martial arts community. These men hold the power of the entrance. Don't pretend it's not important.
These are the 10 greatest entrances in the sport's recorded history. That means individual entrances judged on their absolute value, if you will. So these are not lifetime achievement awards. They are not for the signature entrances of famous fighters or iconic walkout songs. They are not for unintentional comedy (well, maybe a little they are).
Those are fine for other lists. But this one is evaluating sheer spectacle. Pure production value. All style points.
Also, this is for major-league MMA only. So please spare me your natterings about that time you watched a guy surf to the cage on a milk cow at the Nebraska State Fair.
One entry per fighter. Video footage provided in accordance with relevant policies (I think). Please enjoy.
