If Fedor Emelianenko Is Not the Best Heavyweight Ever, Who Is?

Perhaps the most hotly contested topic among Mixed Martial Arts fans centers around Fedor Emelianenko. Is he the greatest MMA fighter of all time? Is he the greatest Heavyweight the sport has ever seen? Or is he unproven and over-rated?

Many MMA fans will say that Fedor Emelianenko is unquestionably the best Heavyweight MMA fighter in the history of the sport.

Others will tell you that this is absolute nonsense and that he's never proven himself against the best fighters in Mixed Martial Arts.

No matter which side of the argument anyone happens to be on, you have to answer this very important question: If Fedor Emelianenko is not the best Heavyweight in Mixed Martial Arts history, who is?

So I think it’s only appropriate that we create a list of all the possible candidates. With a list of all contenders, we can look at their respective careers and run a side-by-side comparison. Each person can decide for themselves who they believe is the greatest MMA Heavyweight ever.

The minimum standards to qualify for consideration are simple enough:
1.) They must have either been a UFC Champion or they must have beaten a former UFC Champion.
2.) They must have been a champion in some fashion within a strong MMA promotion at some point in their career.
3.) They must have fought at heavyweight for a significant portion of their career.
