What does it mean to be mythical?
A mythical figure is an individual who is somehow greater than the sum of his mortal parts. He is able to do things that can only be described in the most grandiose manner.
All of these fighters exemplify the warrior spirit and are true gladiators of the modern era. Their very presence has transcended the sport of mixed martial arts. Their feats have been woven into the fabric of fight sport lore.
They are fondly (or sometimes not so fondly) remembered by fans; immortalized in a lively debate over a few cold drinks and a plate of nachos.
Some of these fighters only reached the pinnacle of greatness for a short time, while others etched their names in the annals of history over careers that spanned decades.
Regardless, they all fit the intangible definition of what it means to be mythical. It is through their accomplishments that their legend will live on and grow with each passing year.
Read. Marvel. Debate. Enjoy.
