Tag Team MMA: 10 Fighter Tag Teams We'd Love to See in Action

All right, enough. Enough about UFC 167. Enough with all this GSP he-said, she-said nonsense. It's time once again for some real news.

In the wake of groundbreaking revelations that UFC veteran Scott Smith would participate in an honest-to-goodness, relatively legitimate-seeming MMA tag-team match this Saturday, it got us here in the Bleacher Report newsroom to thinking. What if some intrepid genius out there created a tag-team MMA promotion? Who would be the best candidates for such madness?

What follows are the 10 best tag team combinations for the sport of MMA. Are team names, managers and finishing moves included? You are damn right they are.

Two ground rules: First, only active fighters allowed. Second, team partners must be a maximum of one weight class apart, so that this is at least a somewhat apples-to-apples proposition. Otherwise, this would all be downright silly. 

One final note: these 10 are the best on an objective level. Might there be other options? No. But if you feel you must kid yourself, please do so in the comments section.
